Help with cabling for Sky+


Active Member
Hi all

With my Sky Digital box having finally packed in I have decided to upgrade to Sky+.

Now the question is I want to run the cabling for the Sky+ myself and wanted to know how many lengths I need to run?

Do I just run 2 single core cables (my existing cable looks a bit battered) or do I need to run more??

Secondly can I purchase a 2 core cable that comes in a single sleeve so that I only have to run 1 length??

Any advise would be welcome.

Thanks in advance

you can buy dual CT63 cable from ebay - not sure how good it is and its quite pricey about £38 for 30 metre inc p&p - do a search its from Cornish Auctions

The spec for the single cable is massively better than that of the shotgun twin - if you run two single cables you will get better signal strength - of course if a very short distance it won't be a problem.
