Hi lads, This is probably a really daft question to ask but I really cant be arsed to ring Sky and get ripped off to have an engineer out when I might be able to solve the problem myself.

 

Basically I plan to buy an LCD/Plasma HDTV in the New Year to replace our antiquated current TV. Thing is I will need to move the Skybox when I do get the new tele about 6 feet into the bay window of the lounge but the cables coming in from the dish arent long enough so I have a problem. Can I buy an extension cable or do I have to get Sky out to put a longer cable in from the dish outside.

 

Cheers

You can buy an extension, about £5 from Argos.

 

Any extension though will reduce quality and signal, not by much tbh, but if you demand perfection (in the 1%) then get a fitter to put in a new cable (about £20)
