    Hi,

    I have 4 rooms in my new house that has been wired with dual coaxial cable, is it possible to connect my sky hd and CCTV to the rooms?

    I'm not fussed about changing the channels I just want the feed to the rooms.

    Hope someone can help me.

    Kind regards

    Gary

    Hi thank you for he fast reply.
    So if I connect the pvr rf2 out socket to a 4 way splitter, and connect all coaxial cables I should have sky in all the rooms?
    The bit I'm really confused about is the cable, I thought coaxial was single, the cable I have is dual can I have sky running through one cable and CCTV through the other if I have 2 separate 4 way splitters?
    If I can what connectors do i use to connect to the TV?
    Sorry about all this, I paid for this to be completed and my tv guy is in intensive care so going to try and finish myself.

    Kind regards

    That's OK, and I was confused too about it being a double cable.
    That's normally used for bringing the signal from a satellite dish to the two input sockets of a satellite PVR.
    A single co-ax cable, usually of a lighter specification, is used for the Return from Sky RF2 Out.
    However one co-ax cable, of any type, should take the combined Sky and CCTV output to the distributor.
    You connect the output from the distributor to the TVs by normal aerial-type cable and plug.
    Each output then shows up on a separate programme number on the TV's analogue tuner.

    Post the enquiry here that you made in a report, and we'll see what can be done - Logi.

    ^^^ Looks like spam from 'thekobyring'. Be interesting to see the IP address.

    @OP, if the twin cable is currently unused you can use it however you wish, within the limitations of the type of cable. Did your TV guy leave you the wiring diagram or was that going to be done as an afterthought (or not at all - not a good idea)? At this stage I recommend you draw your own wiring diagram. It will help at this (the planning) stage and also in the future when something goes wrong. It can even increase the house value if you sell.

    The diagram should be marked with all cable runs and lengths. Add a list of parts (plugs, sockets, amplifier etc. with order codes in case you ever need to replace them).
