Installation question: cable length


Active Member
Having Sky HD installed on Saturday. I'm going to have to have the dish installed on the opposite side of the flat to my lounge where the box will be situated...i.e. the cable coming into the flat will have to go around the wall of the bedroom, under the carpet a bit in the hall and round the living room...this is a good 30m or so.

Is this a normal situation for Sky installations i.e. will there be any problem with this?

Mine goes up the rear wall of the house over the roof down the front wall to the cimema room under the floor to the HD box.

Don't know just how far that is but it is a lot more than 30m and never been any problem :smashin:
