Just a question, Is there any difference between running a 75ohm coax cable (You know, the out of the box stuff) from the RF input on a wall plate to the TV and running a RG6 quad shield cable from a F-Type input on the wall plate to the TV (or even from the aerial to the TV) and then using a F-Type to RF adapter? Hope that makes sense.

This is for IDTV, specifically.

The F connectored cable is less likly to be a shoddy piece of crap then a pre-made belling lee cable.

Keystone F connectors are not readily come by in NZ, why not just use native PDL Fconnector mechs, I can supply both mechs and plates at reasonable prices if what they quote at your local supplier (MasterTrade/Cory, Powerbase etc) scares you, just PM me. Also can supply terminated RG6 cables to any length you like.
