Help Newbie - connections old cable and wireless box - Broadband

HI Just moved into new place - Virgin Media was previously installed - I have Just signed up for Broadband only. the wall box is old and labelled Cable and wireless - It has two outputs - one tabled TV and one labelled FM.

 

the TV output already has a cable attached to it which goes out to where the previous owner had a TV the FM has some kind of adaptor on it - both are jammed on  - what do I do?! HELP

As in do I try and remove the TV cable and attach the Isolator cable will that work or do I need an engineer to install a new wall box?

You do not need to add the isolator supplied in the kit, as you can see the wall box includes one. The “item” on the Radio socket is a terminator and should remain in place. The cable cable on the TV socket should unscrew with a spanner or pair of pliers, alternatively you could use the existing cable.
