    just popped in to focus to get some cable so i can move my sky box, has anybody used their digital extension cable (the one that is preterminated with f connectors) ?

    1. if so is it any good/ signal loss?

    2. if this is not a good cable i noticed they also sell a digital/satellit cable on a reel at 26p p/meter. has anyone used this?

    3. does anyone know a high street store where i can get a 'female' barrel connector (i.e a double threaded connector whose ends are the same as the connector that comes out of the skybox) ?
    I can then make my own cable.


    many thanks guys

    Why not simply order these bits online from someone like satcure.com or satalogue.com

    It'll only cost you £2.50 for postage - probably a lot less than the petrol you'd use driving to Focus and back.

    :rolleyes:

    THIS will also do the trick. I have a couple in my tool box at the moment.
