    Hi,
    This may have been better suited to the Cabling forum but as that does not appear to be as frequently visited I thought I'd try here first...

    I'm planning to re-cable my Sky digital dish and LNB to my digibox whilst redecorating the lounge (and moving the TV to the opposite (interior) corner). I currently have a TiVo and use a video sender to transmit the TiVo output upstairs for bedroom viewing, but I thought for future-proofing, I would run 2 lengths of coax from dish to digibox.

    I've been trying to shop for some good quality CT100/CTF100 coax cable and have found three possibles but not sure which one to go for (or if there are any other alternatives).

    Does anybody have any thoughts on these three....

    I'm favouring the screwfix cable but at present only because it states CAI approved. My current installation, upon inspection, used RG6 coax so either would be an improvement I guess?

    All feedback welcomed!
    Cheers.

    Both the Screwfix and the TLC cable seem to be the same cable. At least they have the same part number.

    Have a quick look at www.cai.org.uk to confirm which model numbers are approved.
