    Hello, I am having an extension and putting 6 tv points different rooms.

    What I would like to know is, if there is a good quality tv cable (coaixial I think) for freeview transmission I can run from the aerial to the rooms? please :)

    And possibly where to get about a 100 m reel..?

    Thanks

    Use satellite grade coax with a foil shield and the normal copper shield too.
    I got my 100m drum from a big B&Q for about £20 - made me laugh to see an 'aerial extension kit for the same money with 20m :)

    CT100 is great as Amc says, mind you I doubt what amc got was high quality CT100 for £20 :rolleyes:
    Copper shielding and dielectric cores is what you need to look out for, if you want to go OTT, go for CT125, it has a thicker core and will retain a quality signal on long runs.

    Never personally heard of CT100 but i'm just starting to look into decent Aerial cable myself...

    New QED stuff looks good but at silly money.

    Graph at the bottom shows lower noise for the QED.
