Not sure how long this cable joint will last.

We had Virgin come round for an install yesterday. Looked like previous owners had Virgin at some point but most cables cut short along exterior walls by the look of things.

Engineer tried to use them where he could and we now seem to have a second exterior box further down the side of the house from the original and this amazing piece of workmanship that I noticed today on the cable that runs to my second TiVo box.

Other than this joint obviously failing once some water gets in does anyone know if having the second external box running of the original will cause any issues going forward?

Re: Not sure how long this cable joint will last.

Hi arronrose871,


A warm welcome to the forums Smiley Happy


I'm not sure exactly what kind of tape that has been used to cover the cable, unless it's water proof there could potentially be water damage to it if it rains over time and will affect the services if so.


Have you experienced any symptoms like pixelated picture/sound issues? or anything else?


If so let me know and I can carry out some checks from here for you.


I look forward to hearing from you.
