if its cable i.e. ntl, virgin, telewest its RG6 CABLE stop a virgin van and ask buy some of the guy or get him to do you a homer as he will put ends on the cable and staple it to wall with rg6 staples far neater job than you could do with out kit..........
yeah RG6 is one name **100 is another. The star can be CT, or WF. If you can't find a Virgin van most large B&Qs sell rolls of it now along with the twist on F tye connectors you'll need for your Sky box
You want RG6 it's 100ohm and much better quailty than the shite you buy out of B&Q our stuff is shipped from the States. I'd also forget about RG56 it's a waste of time Telewest as it was back then stopped using it in 2000 and every install were it was present was ripped out and upgraded to RG6.
However if your using a standard crimp conector expect RF leakage via it best connection is a snap and seal
