    Hi,

    Just got a new 42" plasma that I'm gonna be wall mounting. To do that though I'm going to have to move my Sky+ receiver 4 or 5 foot but the satellite cable from the dish won't extend that far. Can I buy connectors/extra cable to extend the length the 5 foot I require, or will this degrade the signal quality (I want to obviously ensure the PQ on my new plasma is top notch!!

    it will, depending on length not huge amounts - but you should always look to have a direct cable from source to reciever where ever possible.
