Re: Combine Freeview arial and Virgin connection?

Absolutely no. Virgin uses the same spectrum as DTT & DAB, & use special cable to make their network "watertight" against the two coming into contact with eachother.

 

Combining the two will cause interference not only to your services, but to the entire street, as the signals you add will track back down the cable & interfere with all your neighbours services. This could result in your services being cut off, & you receiving a huge bill for all your neighbours callouts. Not to mention that ANY alterations to VM's network cabling is against terms & conditons of service.

You must keep Virgins network coax & Freeview coax cables seperate. As already stated, the signals in a Freeview cable & the signals on Virgins cable will interfere with eachother.
