What the hell is wrong with you? Is there ever a time on here where you are not behaving like a total arsehole?

Not in my house. Walls are brick and we have tiles on the floor.
I had thought if you'd just got an extension built you may have got new flooring. In that case you wouldn't have wanted it lifted if possible.

Another route that could be used is the cavity gap in the walls if it hasn't already been insulated.

Easily solved if you really wanted to.......................................at worst minimum disruption and EASILY put back to normal.

PS Even if there is insulation, cables can still be run down the wall, amazing eh? :1eye

It has and the cabled would need to be routed through to the original part of the house. I'm sure the missus would be delighted with more upheaval just so I could get my TV fix via another provider. I probably should have considered the change previously but I've been fortunate enough to get a discount sorted every time. I'm just not sure that luck will hold out so was looking for constructive advise in case. Thanks for that though.

I’ve never gone for Sky Q because I’ve been told it can’t replicate our current set up.

We currently have 3 boxes, one in the living room, one in our bedroom and one in the Den upstairs. Our telly in the kitchen has a magic eye from the box in the living room, and the guest bedroom has a magic eye from the box in the Den. So we basically have 5 Sky enabled tellies in the house.

I’m told Sky Q can’t replicate that. Maximum of 3 boxes and magic eyes don’t work with it.

Our problems continue, losing connectivity on the mini box, devices also losing wifi signal, all in all, a bad few days.

TBH we get no real issues but this can't continue.

I'll call Sky tomorrow night, see what they say.

The "goto" response is something along the lines of "have you checked your" this that or the other, aye, nothing in our set up has changed for months so let's get back to the equipment please.

Update to follow. 

Just spoke to a very helpful gentleman, he checked and confirmed we had some issues, the usual can you move the router a wee bit further away from the main sky box, done.

If it happens again, it's been fine today, get back to them while it's happening and they'll try top capture the issue as it is happening.

All in all, nothing concrete, but at least it's recorded, gives me something to refer back to if it happens again.

I've got a HDMI extender, something similar to Magic Eye connected to my mini-box. Runs from the bedroom to the kitchen, works just the same. Will see if I can see what it is and post here.

It was my mate that fitted it when installing the TV's, he had two spare from a homer. I'm sure you need to run a phone cable also.

We've had this in the house for almost 2 years

OH, I should add, interestingly my speed, which is normally around 32Mbs to 40Mbs, has just shown 49Mbs, around a 25% increase.

I wonder if they've cranked it up to make sure any outages have a reduced effect?

Long may it continue.

Probably topped up their meter with a stash a 50p's, lol

Just done another speed test, 57Mbs, :o certainly way above my normal speed, pre phone call.

I don't really need "super dooper" high speed, the previous speed was sufficient for our needs.

Been checking the speed throughout the week, still averaging over 50Mbs.

Well done whoever it was I spoke to on Monday. :thumbs2
