Hi i am looking for someone that is resonable price wise. I need to put some cabling from an ariel into a couple more rooms and probably a good idea if i don't do it myself. Any recommendations for someone on the North Shore ?


Cheers

What's the technical challenge in running the cable yourself? F-Type screw on connectors are easy.  

Having said that often the big cost is in actually climbing in attic/under floors etc and if you can do this part yourself you could alway get the professional to do the fitting out of the plugs etc

Buy the RG6 cable and F connectors  on TradeMe guy on there sells by the reel - good price.  He is based in a little shop top of Dominion Rd

Freeview|HD (terrestrial) or Freeview (satellite)?

RG6 and F-Connectors are the ideal but only really required if connecteing Satellite equipment, if you are connecting Freeview|HD terrerstrial you can get away with a lower grade cable and standard coaxial connectors.

Also, you need access to a crimping or compression tool to properly install F-connectors, the screw in ones are dodgy at best and you might as well use standard coaxial connectors if you are going to use those.

See this thread if you are installing a splitter for a satellite system

Screw on ones are fine if the plug isnt going to be moved around or exposed to the damp etc - they will be massivly better than any pal plug or saddle and screw splitter

That really is quite a call there.

If you're going to go to the bother of installing new cabling etc, then just spend the little bit more and do it properly, sit back and enjoy and never need to go back to it.

Haha, very funny. I might do it myself, but finding the time is the issue. It's usually easier and quicker just to pay someone to do it! :)
