V360 mini coax connection

So I've established, thanks to this forum, that a 360 mini box needs a Coax connection, just like the main box, but I can't figure out what the other end of the Coax is supposed to connect to!

If the coax going to my main v360 needs to be split, where does it need to be split? At the wall box where it enters the house, or at the v360? 

I'm in the middle of an extension, and I know where my mini will go, so I'd like to get the Coax ready to include with the first fix electrics. I just don't know where the run needs to begin.

Very likely this. But the co-ax forms part of VM's network and isn't something you can install yourself. VM supply & fit all their cabling.

Re: V360 mini coax connection

Hi @garage_jim,

Thank you for your post and welcome back to our community forums. We're here to help.

As @japitts has advised, if you need some assistance with the cabling and reinstalling of the equipment in the property then we can arrange a technician to come out and do this for you, but there would be a cost of £25 to do so as detailed in our Price Guide.

Let us know if you need to help you arrange that, as I understand if you're doing an extension it might be best to wait until that work is complete first.

Thanks,

Re: V360 mini coax connection

The cable can be split anywhere, even externally, it just depends on the run to both boxes. If you want a cable to be under floorboards just install a pull rope. If you want the mini upstairs you can drill the hole through the ceiling and floorboards now. Note that the mini will need a connection to the hub so the same hole can be used for the coaxial and Ethernet cables.

Re: V360 mini coax connection

Roger_gooner Surely the connection to the hub is WiFi?

There are two options: inferior WiFi or superior wired.
