Virgin Media Tivo Cable Cable

Hi - I'd like to move my Tivo box to the other side of the living room but the white cable that goes from the Tivo box to the entry point on the wall is not long enough. I'd like to buy a longer length from Amazon or similar - but don't know if I need a particular type/kind of cable - or if you can but it with the end screw in connections already fitted - anyone know what I should be looking for ? I reckon I'll need 10m by the time I've fed it around the outside of the room. Thx

Re: Virgin Media Tivo Cable Cable

Virgin used specialised cable that cant be bought over the counter. Its also against Virgins T&C's to mess with the coax cabling, as any non standard alterations can cause noise on the local network that could not only mess up your own services, but everyone elses on the local cabinet. The only real option is a non-fault callout (£99), which covers the cable changes & adjustment of signal levels, which also may go out of tolerance if alterations are made.
