Paul Posted March 25, 2011 Share Posted March 25, 2011 Mr and Mrs Paul bought a house this week which is in need of complete renovation. We will be moving there in a few months. One thing I have to consider is modern media. Currently we have enough cable snaking round our house to stretch to Manchester and back. The new property is a stone-built mid-terrace and the level of renovation is such this could be thought of as new build, everything is coming out, gutted back to the original stone and bare earth. My question is this; what should I be considering in terms of setting up the property for modern communications, media etc? This is a great opportunity to "lose" all the cables. Cable TV, broadbnand etc. is not possible in our location, so satellite or telephone line are the only methods of entering the digital age. At the moment we have BT broadband and BT vision and while I don't plan to change do want to future proof the property if possible. I'm thinking this: Aerial point in all "living" rooms Satellite point in all "living" rooms Broadband - wireless distribution of some sort Is it possible to effectively route TV, satellite etc round the electrical circuits or do these have to be seperate Is there something I should have heard of but haven't? I only live two doors awy from the house we are renovating so know the potential well. What I don't understand is how or what a modern property would look to incorporate to cope with modern, digital media needs and to be available throughout the property. Help please.
