I'm getting Sky installed on Monday and have just received my viewing card etc. I notice in the notes that: "...we cannot run it '(the cable)' through wall cavities. However we will run the cable externally, ie around skirting boards and door arches" So how on earth do they get the cable into the house!!! I assume that they mean once the cable is in the house, they won't run it through a wall? Or do they mean that the cable cannot come in from outside through a wall cavity. Confused?!?! I am hoping that the installer will fit the dish on the corner of my house, run the cable down the external wall, drill through the outside wall and push the cable through where my Tv backs onto. Total run of cable will only be a few metres. I can see no problems at all with this, the dish will be facing the same way as all the neighbours' dishes and the wire will run down the wall my tv set backs onto on the inside. Ideally I would love the cable not to be externally attached to the wall but fed into the wall cavity at the point the dish is attached to the external wall. Then I could feed the cable down the inside of the wall and it would then be connected to a satellite socket on the lounge wall, to which I could plug the set top box into. Does that sound feasible? Also what type of satellite socket should I buy. We have brass switches and sockets in the lounge and I saw a brass satellite socket in B&Q. I assume that will do the business? Also will the engineer leave enough connections and cable for me to connect to the wall socket myself or will he do that for me? After all I am paying £70 for the privilege and I don't like the comment: "...and any additional work likely to incure charges...." Cos I would do it myself!!! By the way I have already installed a phone socket on the tv wall, so they will be less work for the engineer to do for a start!! Quick answers will be appreciated as I plan this weekend to get everything sorted, including drilling of the walls myself just in case the engineer refuses to do the work I request. Surely they will carry out my request?
