there's only one solution: a longer cable .
You do understand that the virgin cable does not go to the TV it goes to the V box or Tivo box?
so leave that where it is, & buy a longer cable to go FROM there TO your TV,. Duh...............................................
or for only £99 , Virgin will extend THEIR Cable for you
i am a pensioner own my own,and i just wanted some advice not your sarcasm,if this is how you treat people on your site i certainly will not use it again!
The reply above was from another customer, not a Virgin employee.
The cost to extend the white cable that goes from the wall to the TV box is however correct.
The alternative is to leave the box where it is & move the TV. Most modern TV's use HDMI cables which are available in various lengths.

thank you for reply,it was good to get a proper answer to my question
his answer was same as mine - get a longer cable - he just said it nicer.
you can add your own longer cable from the Virgin box to yourTV, and not touch the white virgin cable at all.
but remember you will sitll have to point the virgin remote at the virgin box, not at your tv to then change channel etc
virgin will charge you £99 to fit a longer virgin cable
Just buy yourself some cable and 2 f connectors and f connector barrel available from marlins and run to your tv

that is a workable solution only for someone who understands cable types and knows exactly what to buy and how to install it
technically you are not supposed to mess with virgin equipment and that includes taking out their cable and fitting your own
I don't think the OP is a cable expert, & it's £99 to get it fixed if he breaks it.
Which is no doubt the cause of a lot of noise ingress & performance issues on the network through people using freeview or satellite cable which is the wrong standard.
