Hi - When we moved in (and got virgin set-up) we had to spend a few weeks doing DIY work in the living room. The engineer was kind enough to leave the main connection (and the router) in the living room but to run a cable up the outside wall to the bedroom - so we could have the TV and virgin box there while we worked on the living room.
The living room is now complete. I have a connection box on the wall, with the external cable coming into one side of a splitter and two cables coming from the other side, to a power socket and to the broadband router respectively.
Is it reasonably simple to wire up the virgin TV box to this somehow? I would get an engineer out if need be but think coronavirus has closed the call centres.
So top left comes from outside box (which has another connection going to bedroom, where the TV box is just now): bottom left (with the PW/IN label) goes to the power socket in the other photo; and the right hand side (with the TV/RF label) goes to the router ... so I think I may just need to add a splitter to the router connection and plug the second connection to the TV box?
Whats happening with t'other cable (TV/RF- black band round it)?
You may need a terminator cap for it just to eliminate any back-path noise..
If your happy to go ahead on the basis of splitting the HUB coax and DONT have a splitter provided by VM Ill give you some part numbers, difficulty is going to be how you connect 2nd leg of splitter to V6 if they haven't sent you a cable either....
