Re: Silver Terminator Cap

There should be terminator caps in the packaging sent to return equipment. Beware, however, as they are small items.

Re: Silver Terminator Cap

Well I’ve just boxed up my VM box to go back to VM and in the instructions it advises you ‘to disconnect white coaxial cable and replace with terminator cap’ I’ve done just that and replaced the white cable connector screwing the cap onto the VM Box and put it all inside the return packaging.
Reading this thread I’m thinking I should have put the caps on the ends of the white cable to protect my neighbours from interference and kept them!
When I terminated the Virgin deal I expected all connections to become dead so that I can remove all of their cabling from around the outside walls of my house
Question 1: Can I do this?
Question 2: Where do I get 2 terminator caps if I need to connect these to the white cables that are left inside my house?
Thanks for any help offered

Re: Silver Terminator Cap

Hi StuartL, 

 

Thanks for your post and welcome to the Community. It's great having you on board with us in the Community. Smiley Happy 

 

It's not super important to connect the caps. Especially if you are planning to remove the cabling from within the property. You can cut the cables however we wouldn't look at sending anyone out to do this for you. 

 

If you need any further help, let us know.

 

Thanks,

Re: Silver Terminator Cap

Please - the cap I was sent by VM is a male cap so won't fit on the male and of the F type fitting on the coaxial cable feeding from the interior wall box to the VM TV box 

How should this cable be capped when disconnecting from the TV box?
