Hi all



In about a week the Gib goes up in the house, and initially had planned to run a Diplexer at the Aerial end to allow Freeview and UHF (for Prime) ... but thought Id just check the experts :)



Its about a run of 17m from where Ive installed a small Mast (eg its not attached to the house) to the Media Centre.



Will it be OK using a Diplexeer at the Mast for the Aerial and Dish or should I just run a second RG6 to the Media Centre?



Im thinking of doing the latter as it definetly gives me some flexibility, but in case I cant (eg run out of RG6 :) ) will the former suffice.



Lastly, is getting two of these (http://www.trademe.co.nz/Electronics-photography/TVs/Cables-aerials/auction-123790199.htm) the go ... just some TradeMe listings seem to suggest there are inferior versions.

If you can run two RG6's all the better, never no, one might get damaged in the future, I prefer to leave them seperate, but its not really a big issue. I have not seen the lesser quality ones, but if its Sky approved then all the better as they do place minimum specs on things.

You can get good hills ones for around $14 at DSE, but with Sky approved RG6 at 80c/meter why not just run the extra coax.

Thanks Cyril

Got to thinking that if/when the Terrestrial service starts up next year and IF we are able to receive it, having the extra RG6 in the walls might be worthwhile.
