Wiring

Hi,

Is this wiring set up the best/neatest it could be or is there an alteration I could make?

It looks very untidy.

If this is a new installation, you can within 14 days phone and say that you are cancelling without cost to you, unless they send a technician to sort out the wiring.

Perhaps is better to specify what you would like done with the wiring & the Hub.

E.g a need bit more cable to put the Hub on a table, or a lot more cable to relocate the Hub to a different location.

It depends.  Bearing mind there are bend radius constrictions on co-ax cables.  The splitter "could" have been housed in a surface mounted wall box I suppose?  Or the split "could" have been made outside, with the relevant cables run outside to other locations?  It may just be that there was no alternative?

I'd certainly not want all that clutter on the floor. There are better ways to run those cables, that you could discuss with a technician. Perhaps this should have happened when it was installed?

This is slapdash including the use of black rather than white cable. The splitter could have been fixed to the skirting board as it was in my house.

Hi @Niclips thanks for your post here in the Community. 

Can you advise please what your preferences are in terms of your set-up and then we could advise further? That would be much appreciated.

Many thanks

It is not a new installation. But a new TV and TV unit have led me to want to tidy up the wires. I don't know why it is not attached the skirting board though. I want the router on the new TV unit, but the bend of the co-ax wires and the weight of the silver 2 way splitter just pull it downs and it falls on to the floor. So it has to sit on the floor behind my TV unit which is not ideal. How can I get my router on to sit on my TV unit? Thanks for all your help. I really don't know much about all this.

Also, when I move the Router off the floor and up to the TV Unit, the 2 way splitter is then hanging in the air
