Hi all, can anyone advise where I can get a longer coaxial lead from?

Re: Yellow top coaxial cable

The coax Virgin use is specially made for them as it is of a higher standard than Freeview or Satellite cable. The reason for this is to prevent ingress of interference onto the network. Any modifications should only therefore be done by Virgin (as per their terms & conditions). As this is a non-fault callout, there is a charge of £99 to change wiring & adjust signal levels to compensate for the change in cable length.

Re: Yellow top coaxial cable

Rather depends how much longer it needs to be.  You would have to pay VirginMedia £99 to have an engineer come out and extend the coax.   Now VM are not keen on people doing it themselves but I'll just point out that you can get the appropriate cable from Amazon in 5m, 10m, or 20m lengths ...
