Re: No wall box only cables

If you can upload a photo it might be helpful.

Is there no outside wall box? This would be the dead giveaway as to where the cable comes in.

Re: No wall box only cables

no idea - post some photos - trace them back to the external box

but some guesswork

the 2 black are likely to be sky - the brown is likely to be an aerial connection - white wins it as VM use white cables - if its got a F type end connector thats a plus - you will need one of these

Re: No wall box only cables

These cables all seem to come down from the dish on the roof. 

on the opposite side the is the brown virgin box but it looks like the cable has been filled in the wall.

Re: No wall box only cables

i stay with my best guess - the white one but it looks to go upwards rather than to the external box 

the 2 black if its one cable with 2 wires is 100% sky and the brown is standard aerial cable or looks to be

plug them in one at a time - turn on the hub and see what happens - you wont damage it

if one does work then get the connector i pointed to and add the cable that came with the hub

assuming non of that works go to the external box and follow the cable from that - the feed cable will come up from the ground - follow any other cables - if sky followesdVM then they are excellent at cutting the VM cable and pulling it back so they can feed their cable through the pre drilled hole

if thats happened you need a tech
