    Hello,

    I am told that to get my Sky+ through to my HCPC I need to use KAT5.
    I want best pictures and audio.
    How do I price up what I need and Is it easy to install?
    I assume it takes the svideo and the phono out for audio?
    But I don't understand the fundamentals.

    Cheers

    Chris

    Hi, I run a webshop MadNat , which is a firum sponsor. We provide products and services that enable long runs of Audio and Video via cheap Cat5 cable (about 10p per metre). We have all major Audio and Video configurations in stock, including S-Video, Component Video, Digital (Coax) Audio and Stereo. Feel free to visit the web site, or drop me a line, and I'll be more than happy to help you out.

    Best of luck

    Mike

    I had a look at KAT5 but it didnt have IR pass through - I used a a product called AV One2One IR - I got it from www.catvision.tv (websites a bit mad!!! but they seem to know their stuff).

    What a co-incidence. I have just checked the ownership records of the above domain name and the contact email address is exactly the same as that of Timex Kid.

    As a matter of interest I would always advise against buying anything from any website where the address isn't clearly stated and doubly so when the point of contact is a mobile telephone number.

    I know - the websites a bit naff - the address I have is: Catvision Ltd, unit 8, Rivergate Lane, Lisburn, NI, BT27 5UG. I just completed (well almost) a new build and flood wired it with cat5 FTP (foil sheilded - seem to work better) - Ive had no problems with them - Good Luck.
