I recently had virgin tv fitted but now I want to rearrange my furniture my virgin coax cable is long enough but my old Ariel lead isnt this may sound silly but can I just plug in the virgin coax straight into to the the back of my tv (if that makes sense) or do I need to stick with getting another extension wire.
You cannot plug in a cable from a "closed" system cable TV network (that Virgin is) directly into a TV. It requires a decoder box, which Virgin provides, as all its channels are encrypted. The cable TV tuners in most sets are only for use in "open" system cable networks where there are some unencrypted channels.
