Hi guys,

I want to run some elv cabling (tv coax, cctv coax & power & cat5 data) from my house, in dedicated ducting under the garden to a shed.

Does this have to be notified or is it only mains wiring?

hi pens

banned rofl.. she cant get me out the house enough :)

i've got kids who want internet in there rooms, we live in a rough area, so we have cctv... sky tv nowadays is normal & i dont want to sit & watch cartoons all day, we often end up in the garden for bbq's etc, but cant see or hear the front door. so thought it would be nice to stick a spare tft panel in there so we can see if ppl are arriving for the bbq / party etc...

i also have an old wireless modem, which i can stick out there for internet for the kids... both these are very low current, so there isnt much of a load issue, they are both sat spare, so just making use of them really.

I'm quite lazy so am hoping once it is all in place, i wont see any cables, extension leads, network cables etc & the kids wont be bugging me for it all later.....

You already want more stuff in your shed!

one step ahead of ya :LOL:

with everyone's help on here, i've already been out & bought it

had planned to run them soon as i have spoken to lbc, get it rectified & i can forget about it. the cable run is easy enough as i left guide rope in the ducting incase i ever had to lay new.

thanks for all your help ;)
