Hi,
I intend on running my SKY HD in the lounge up stairs to teh bedroom using RF2 from the box. The cable length required will be around 20 metres so my question is what quaility of cable should I go for and will it make that much difference?

Looking at these as options:

Or

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/20m-SATELLITE-CABLE-RG6-BLK-2xF-1x-BARREL-2xTV-20-CLIPS_W0QQitemZ260182692489QQihZ016QQcategoryZ39804QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQcmdZViewItem?_trksid=p1638.m118

Any help would be really appreciated.

Neither of those will do IMHO.

The first is a coax cable for interconnects between DVDs and Amplifiers. Too high a quality for RF.

The eBay may be OK, but TBH, I'd go for CT100 or equivalent.

Look at this page which explains all the nuances.
