TV cable extension

Hi. I have installed the quickstart package but I have had to move my TV as the supplied cable is too short. How can I extend the cable so I can put my TV back? Thanks

Re: TV cable extension

You are only supplied with a short cable as long cables affect signal levels which require an engineer to adjust. VM don't make clear that only short cables are supplied, & if you need anything over & above this a manned install is required. I would phone up & explain the situation & they should send an engineer out to make the alterations required.

Just to point out that the coax cabling within your property forms part of the local network, & any modifications must be carried out by VM, or all kinds of issues can result.

How much cable do you need?     If it isn't too long it should work.
