    Have completed coax job in bedroom, so many thanks for great advice. Now have a variation on a theme, so to speak. Plan to use another splitter to run existing downstairs coax to TV in conservatory.

    Only way I can see is to drill hole through wall between dining room and conservatory. Drilling through masonry above skirting board is probably least messy, but longer drill bit required. Drilling through upvc quicker, but uglier.

    Appreciate your expertise as usual.

    Thanks

    I don't think that is something which anyone but you can really decide - it depends upon your personal views as regards the relative merits of such choices as messy/less messy, quicker/slower, uglier/neater and short/long drill etc. !

    Kind Regards, John

    Appreciate that. However, all other things being equal, what would you do?

    Thanks

    For what it's worth, probably the same as winston.

    Kind Regards, John
