Re: TV cable and socket related question

View Post
I have a TV socket in my living room but I want to place the TV in my bedroom. I would need 10-20 metres of cable to extend the socket to my bedroom. The cable is normally round and I would have problem closing the bedroom door. Are there flat TV cables out there? Where would I buy them? I assume that the normal round ones would be available in places like Fust and Coop but what about the flat ones?

Any special German name I should be aware of? Would appreciate your help.
Saint Google did not provide many answers for "flat TV cables".

If I buy a new generation of LCD TV then would it make my 15-20m cable redundant? New LCD screens still require the same TV cable for the signal correct?
Go to your local Jumbo or Co-op Bau and Hobby and have a look or ask. There are certainly flat cables for satellite cable, not sure about co-ax. You need the flat cable (normally about 6 to 8 inches long) plus connectors for the cable before the door and after the door. I have one coming through a window and it works fine.
