    Hi, Hope this is in the right forum.

    I want to move my TV to the opposite corner of the lounge. At present I have a terrestial co-axial cable, and a sky cable coming in through the wall, and then a co-axial cable going out through the wall up to my bedroom (using the spare RF out on the Sky plus box) so I can watch Sky upstairs (I have a magic eye to switch channels).

    I want to avoid having to have a reinstallation of all the cables if possible.

    Where I want to relocate the TV etc is on an internal wall anyway. I also keep on changing my mind about the layout so I may want to move the bloody TV again!!

    Is there any way that I can effectively extend the cables (circa 20 ft or so) without screwing up the quality of the signal. I have thought about leaving all the av in the same corner and then have some crazy length scart lead to the TV but I don't know if they make them 20 ft + long.

    Any advice appreciated.
