OMNIBOX coaxial switch on

Hi All,

We have an omnibox outside with 2 coaxial cables one strait into the building and one line going to the upstairs room.

I had an engineer last year out to fix a cable issue (great chap) at the time the hub was upstairs, he said he disabled the connection downstairs so we would get a better signal.

We are now needing to activate the downstairs one as the hub will be moving there ( no longer needing it upstairs) 

What's the best way to get the cable re-activated for downstairs?

 

Thanks

Re: OMNIBOX coaxial switch on

All the tech will have done is remove the splitter in the omnibox & replaced it with a straight coupler onto the feed you still needed. You can fix this yourself IF you have the correct size spanner, simply by de-coupling the feed you are no longer using & coupling up to the other.

If you find you have the equipment to do this, it is important not to over-tighten the couplings. Just do them up tight enough that they would be difficult but not impossible to undo again by hand.
