Re: Where does 2nd V6 box connect?

Do you know the max distance for the coax cable to the 2nd box? I’m considering a garden room and the distance would be around 50m, is that doable?

Re: Where does 2nd V6 box connect?

Hi there,

50 Meters distance on our Coaxial cable should be fine.

It may be tricky to get the coax cable to the garden room though as it would require either to be ran from the Brown Virgin box on the side of the house or just to have a new line installed from the cabinet to the garden room. Then it would need to be buried and place in conduit.

We would also advise that you do not run any coaxial cable yourself as we use a specific type of coax with the correct connectors etc.

Hope this helps a bit!

Thanks

Christy

Re: Where does 2nd V6 box connect?

OK great, thanks for the info.

So my plan would be to pre-install buried conduit with a draw wire from the brown box on the front of the house down to the garden room. Then a Virgin Media installer could use this to simply pull through the specific type of coax and terminate with the correct connectors etc.
