New house data wiring. Sky and Telephone distribution.
Posted on 2007-10-08
I have re-wired sinking all electrical and data cables into the walls.
Each room has 2 x CT100 coaxial cable, and 2 x Cat5e cables. All running back up to the loft space.
My idea was to use the 2 x CT100 for Sky+ in each room, 1 cat5e for telephone socket, and 1 x cat5e for Ethernet network.
I have a patch Data cabinet in the loft, RJ45 patch panel and switch etc.. for network, but nothing yet for telephone or sky distribution.
I do have the telephone run from the main incoming BT line to the loft, but do not have a BT master socket installed yet, only an MK master socket. All telephone cabling from the incoming to the loft is cat5e.
My quetions are:
1 - Can the Sky signal from the dish be connected to a distribution panel and then distributed down all the CT100 cables to each room? Using a single Coax from the dish. OR will this degrade quality.
Any exaples would be appreciated.
2 - What is the best way to distribute the telephone connection throughtout the house using the cat5e I have from the loft to each room? Baring in mind I do not yet have a BT master socket installed.
