    Roof aerial outlet?

    I have chased the aerial and it seems to me that it splices off in two places. I have found one, in the second bedroom. I plugged it in and received about 30 freeview channels. Mostly the bbc channels, Dave and a few others. Oddly no itv channels. Do I need a new aerial? I was thinking of...

    Roof aerial outlet?

    Thank you. This is how the old coax looks. Do I wire the new one up the same? Use the inside cable to go into the right socket and then use the copper braiding to go into the left socket?

    Roof aerial outlet?

    I am going to disconnect the old coax and attach a new one to the roof aerial and feed it down to the front room. What is the connector I will need for the socket on the end to plug into my now tv box? Can I use anything of the connectors in the links stated earlier as I have all 3 items now...

    Roof aerial outlet?

    Hi As suspected the white box didn't work. I had already purchased the connections online when I read on here that it probably wouldn't work. But as I purchased the wires I tried it anyway. I will have another go at tracing the coax when it's daylight tomorrow or over the weekend. Would it not...

    Roof aerial outlet?

    I could not see any cables coming down the outside walls other than the sky dish wires. However my next door neighbour has got wires coming from their loft. Which would indicate perhaps our aerials were installed after the build. The loft aerial definitely only has one coax coming from it. It...

    Roof aerial outlet?

    Thank you. I think you need an aerial for the freeview channels iirc. I have tried to chase the aerial from the loft but it just enters the floorboards. If anyone else has any other tips they would be appreciated. Also any idea why the wall socket has 2 ports? Thanks

    Roof aerial outlet?

    Hello We have an aerial in our loft that looks like it is wired up but I am not sure where it comes out. The only thing I can see is this box in our front room. Is this the roof aerial outlet? If so what cable would I need to connect it to a freeview box/now tv box? Many thanks

    Dimmer switch change

    It's in the wall plate (the bracket that sits in the wall) and the other end is in the back of the dimmer switch plate itself

    Dimmer switch change

    Both ends of it ? Because currently one end is on the backing plate and one end is on the back of the dimmer

    Dimmer switch change

    Hello I have a metal dimmer switch in my bedroom that isn't work. I have purchased a new one. I have changed a switch before from a normal on/off switch To a dimmer and it was a straight swap. But this time my old dimmer is metal and has a metal backing plate. It also has an earth from the...

    Gas leak detectors?

    I had a gas leak before in a rental property and it was a nightmare to get sorted with a rubbish landlord. And there are people who have poor sense of smell due to medical conditions. So if you aren't sure instead of calling out the gas safe people whenever you smell a strange smell or even...

    Gas leak detectors?

    Ok I'll just get one of those then! I guess my original post was a bit vague. Are there any reliable natural gas detectors the general public can purchase and rely on? I was thinking of something like this...

    Hello Can you purchase reliable natural gas leak detectors? For potential leaks from appliances and pipe work? I already have a CO detector.

    Baxi combi boiler taking a while to turn on?

    Hello, We had a baxi combi boiler installed Dec 2016 and it has worked fine (and still does) but I have got a query. The pressure was a bit low so I topped it up. When we used the heating after that the pressure went to 3. So I had to bleed the radiators and let some of the water and air out...

    Hot water not going to tap?

    Plumber was a no show yesterday. After failed attempts to contact him. I managed to get hold of him today and he said he'd be here this evening. But again no show. The valve doesn't look like its leaking so much now. It looks more like Condensation. I have put a sheet of card underneath to see...
