    Morning,

    Had Sky + installed earlier this week, asked engineer to give us a long arial cable as I was going to relocate the box onto a shelf on the wall, however, I have just been down to move the box and found that he has installed a long cable for Input 2 but input 1 is the same length cable as I had before. Anyone know how and what I need to buy to extend the cable?

    Thanks

    Morning Baldie!

    Easy job! You will need a couple of 'F' connectors, an inline 'back to back' connector and an appropriate length of cable of course.

    Read this tutorial http://www.satcure.co.uk/tech/fconn.htm on how to fit an 'F' connector and all will become clear.

    Hope this helps. :)

    Cheers Arthur,

    Any ideas where I can get these F conectors from on the high street? Need to get the job done today, rather than waiting for them to arrive in the post.

    Thanks

    Any TV repair shop (if you can find one left!) or as a last resort Maplin. They are only around 10p each but Maplin will probably charge a quid! Good luck!
