Multi room

I am an electrical contractor & we are currently re wiring a 3 bed apartment for a client.

There is an existing white Virgin box in one of the bedrooms which then has a cable run from there to the lounge (which is where the previous owner had his V6 box.)

Our client wants the option to have multi-room in two of the bedrooms & possibly the kitchen too. 

A guy from Virgin called in before we started the job & he left us some coax & said to run this coax from the white box to the store cupboard in the middle of the apartment. Then to run another coax from that point to each of the rooms that are to have a V6 box. (Sounds like they will use some kind of splitter at that location) 

Can you confirm that this is correct as I read on here that each V6 box needs a separate coax from the white Virgin wall box.

Re: Multi room

Thats correct they will fit a splitter to get it to the other rooms.

Re: Multi room

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the reply. I just needed that confirming before the plasterers come in.

One other thing, where will the router need to be located ? Does it have to go directly into the white Virgin box or can this go next to the splitter in the cupboard ?

Re: Multi room

You could have the coaxial cable which enters the front of the house running to the cupboard (which needs at least one 13A socket). A splitter there will split the cable, one leg for the hub, the other legs running to each room where a V6 is needed. Cables can be joined by a simple barrel connector. You should also run Ethernet cabling (cat 5e would do but why not use cat 6) for each room which will have a V6 or require internet access.
