    Hi everyone, I've just bought my first home and would like to wire my house for Ethernet (probably Cat6) with wall sockets, patch panel, 16-port switch etc.

    I'm not too keen on wireless or Homeplug as I have HD content on my server (VMWare ESXi running Windows 7 and FreeNAS) which I'd like to stream to my HTPC. Although it's a simple install probably only covering three rooms (depending on cost), my DIY skills wouldn't be up to the task!

    Can anyone recommend any good, reputable, reasonably priced installers who cover the Liverpool area? Thanks in advance :)

    If it is just Cat5/6 wiring for networking I would use an electrician/data cabler as it likely you will pay a premium if using an AV installer.
