Hi guys, Im looking at moving my TV from 1 room to another.
As part of my job i actually lay cables in, around and ont the outsides of peoples houses, I am now looking at moving my V6 box to the bedroom, but because I dont work with cable i just have a question please.
At the front of my house i Have a splitter, Only 1 cable runs off this and onto another splitter that connects my tv box and modem.
I guess i can just run new cable from the 1st splitter into the new room of choice and connect tv box in new location?
also if the above is possible do i need another splitter just to connect the 1 box?
1) Virgin do not use standard coax. The type used for Freeview & Satellite does not provide the immuinty to RF ingress that is required on cable systems. Virgin use specially manufactured cable for this purpose.
2) Any change of more than 5 metres in a cable run normally requires a signal level adjustment at the street cabinet to keep the downstream & upstream channels in balance.
3) Making any changes to your installation (which is Virgins property) is against your Terms of service.
Virgin charge a non-fault callout fee to do the work (£99). DIY changes that mess up the local network will end up costing you far more.
