New ariel installation

Postby BullBates1 » Fri Jun 24, 2022 8:56 pm

I've got some quotes for a new ariel installation (not very DIY I know).

I'm trying to compare them but they are saying different things.

The new arial is on the roof and will have the coaxial cable run down and into my loft room. Here I want to have a box that splits the single feed into 5 cables running to 5 different rooms in the house.

I want the box hidden in a partition wall which will then be insulated, boarded and plastered.

One quote says that box doesn't need power, the other is saying I will need to plug it in and therefore can't be inside the wall

Anyone got any advice on this, obviously I want to go with the no power option but am worried about lack of signal etc.

Many thanks

I realise I have spelt aerial incorrectly many times in that post but am not sure how to edit it!
