    I am trying to source a number of items for an install in a new house.

    I need...

    Component video wall plates
    Component video cable
    Component video terminators RCA (male)
    Banana plug speaker wall plates
    Banana plug speaker cable terminators
    RJ45 wall plates, but with digital co-ax cable (instead of cat5)
    Speaker cable

    Its going to be a serious system with 6 rooms distributed audio (one outside)
    2 rooms sourround (one cinema projector room - HTPC)
    music studio
    etc.

    I am looking for good websites for cabling supplies that would deliver to UK and Ireland. I am also looking for a certain degree of quality.
    Any help appreciated greatly.

    Never seen a RJ45 Plate for digital co-ax cable. Can you tell me a little more about what your trying to do? I run a small networking company so might be able to help?

    just looking for bigger BW than cat5e for the home network. I was under the impression that I could run co-ax for my betwork instead, and assumed a RJ45 interconnect. What should I be looking for.

    RJ45 is specific to cat5/cat6 cable running a coax LAN is an Odd move whats wrong with Giga Bit Ethernet??? also for home cinema wall plates any CI dealer will be able to supply them in a range of finishes and fiitings. QED make them as doeas a US company whos name escapes me..... but are sold in the UK via RGB Distribution

    Hi

    Cat5e would support gig bandwidth? & Then theres Cat 6. Co-ax was used on 10mb networks and cant support the levels of bandwidth your talking about. Its not just a simple case of installing good cables, its a question of what the hardware (switchs/routers) are doing. Some have better abilities than others. I would simply install Cat5e cable with RJ45 outlets. Make sure that the installers dont stand on, strech or kink the cable as this will affect performance (even though it will pass a cat5e test).

    How much component cable will you be looking for?

    I have a one-off shipment of Belden 7712A cable on route from the USA due any day now. I will have circa 110 feet of excess that I am looking to sell on at my cost plus UK postage or collection from my Cheshire home. Please read the Beekeeper notes on this cable.

    I will confirm cost once the duty and VAT elements have been settled and I know my total cost.

    The Belden cable arrived yesterday. I am able to sell on at my cost of £2 per foot plus cost of post & packing. Pickup from my Cheshire home is of course an option.

    Let me know if you are interested. Regards. Farmnut
