Advice 1: How to connect TV cable

Connecting the antenna cable easy. It is necessary to observe a certain order of Stripping wire and connect it to the clutch. We must act carefully, so as not to damage the signal wire, the shielding braid. When laying cable, it is also important to follow the rules. This will help to avoid interference with TV watching and loss of signal.
How to connect TV cable
You will need
  • Aerial cable, knife, coupling, tool for crimping couplings.
Remove the insulation from both ends of the antenna cable. Wrap the braided shield.
Carefully clean off one centimeter of an aluminum layer and inner insulation before the advent of signal wires. Flatten the braided shield over the aluminum layer.
Slip the coupling with special clamps on the stripped pieces of cable. To secure the connection, compressing the clutch.
In every point of the apartment, it is advisable to bring your aerial cable as in Daisy chain wiring does not exclude problems with the operation of the TV in cases when the reception is with a satellite dish.

Gasket antenna cable to combine with the installation of Goriunova or boxes. In this case, the cable will not be damaged for various repairs in the house, moving furniture or in other situations.
Useful advice
Choose the cable with the minimum attenuation factor of not less than 22 dB, and of an external diameter exceeding 5 mm. This cable is high quality and avoids signal loss.

Between the antenna cable and electrical wiring, you must maintain a distance of at least 15 cm, Otherwise when watching TV to avoid interference.

Advice 2: How to compress TV cable

Installation of television cable is quite straightforward. For this you, in principle, do not need any experience of this sort, or theoretical knowledge. It will be sufficient to comply with only a few simple rules.
How to compress TV cable
You will need
  • - knife-cutter;
  • - F-connector;
  • - coaxial cable.
After laying TV cable (coaxial) don't forget to leave a small supply of wire, as in the apartments sooner or later, as a rule, there are slight adjustments. Excess cable can be rolled in a compact ring, a small diameter and tie the wire or paper tape.
Grab a sharpened knife cutter neat, and make a shallow longitudinal incision (about 1.5-2 cm). Try not to damage the conductors of the shielding braid.
After that, you need to remove the incised layer of the outer cable insulation. Next, visually separating the split end of the cable into three pieces, free from the shield approximately one third. It is important to avoid tears the foil and thin wire.
Now, in the liberated part of the wire, make another longitudinal incision. After that, it is necessary to release the carrier wire from the insulating layer. Thus, you should be entirely prepared for crimping coaxial cable.
The last thing you need to do is to install f-connector on the cut cable. To do this, take the TV connector and gently hand clockwise to screw it into the coax. Secure the place of articulation of the cable and connector with glue, tape, or paper tape.
Insert the f connector into the socket of the TV and check the quality of the TV signal. If the signal quality is poor, it is necessary to again remove the connector and check that the wires of the shielding conductor do not overlap with the main vein.
Useful advice
Getting started cutting the cable, please note that the coax consists of several layers: the main bearing conductor (usually copper) and shielding braid.
