    Hi all,
    While renovating our new home I came across a nest of cables for sat and terrestrial TV (see pic). We don't have TV, but I want to retain what's here in case that changes in the future. Could anyone suggest how to terminate these into a single wall plate retaining functionality?

    There is a double cable from the sat receiver, the rest I'm not sure about but one seems to be coming from an antenna, and another running along an outside wall to a socket at the far end of the house. There is a powered distributer in the roof space.

    Thanks.

    This looks like a job for euro modules. You could have a double F connector module for the satellite feeds...

    ...and three standard aerial sockets...

    ...which all click into a double gang euro frame...

    You'll need to cut out a bit more of the wall to fit in a double gang plasterboard back box. Get a 47mm deep one in there if possible.
