Hi folks & Happy New Year !
I'm putting together a FTA system at the moment - have the receiver, the cable, connectors, but no dish (had ordered a 90cm from Maplin but now backordered for quite a while).
Anyway, I'll probably get one locally (satellite.ie).
In the meantime, I plan on running cable from the shed, along the garden and into the house - with the plan of course to mount the dish somewhere near the shed.
Question: is it okay to drill a hole from the outside of the house all the way in, bridge it with conduit making sure it's sealed, then putting cable through that conduit ? The house is a timber-frame affair ie. concrete block on the outside, a layer of insulation, then a layer of board, then the plasterboard.
WHat sort of drillbit should be used - masonry or "auger" ? The latter looks like it'll make a big hole very quick, and remove a lot of waste on the way.
If that's not a good idea, how does one route a cable from outside to inside ? I have never seen how the pro's do it for CCTV, alarms, dishes, lights, etc etc.
