Virgin Media's checker shows that my building, consisting of nine flats, has Virgin Media. Some residents placed their order but it turns out the building isn't even wired and VM engineers have begun doing work on the street, but they are lazy and say they're going to be running a single cable for every flat, which would look absolutely ghastly! Furthermore I suspect there is already internal wiring in place, I just don't know how I can test it...
Here's a photo
of what it looks like, there's a thick BT cable with CAT5 cabling which I presume is for the BT Master Sockets, and then there are the thick coaxial cables that aren't connected to anything - I suspect this could be used for Virgin Media. There's also a single coaxial cable
in another part of the closet, next to the BT cable (which has it's own grey duct/tube) that I suspect is there specifically for VM to run their single cable into the property.
How would I be able to convince the VM engineers (who are coming back again after one of the flats said they don't want any drilling done and said they're cancelling their order as an attempt to pursuade VM to use internal cabling) to test these coaxial cables to see if they go into any of the flats?
This is what my socketing looks like
. I tried and found out that the two aerial ones on the bottom left work (one is TV and the other one "Radio" which picks up less channels), then there are two Satellite sockets, the one on the left works and picks up satellite channels but the one on the right doesn't work AND I suspect this might actually go downstairs in the first photo above.
Then there's the weird splitter and I don't know where all this cabling goes...
Sorry for the long post and thanks for your reply!
TL:DR I need some advice with the weird wiring, it's a new build/newly rebuilt old building with fresh internal wiring etc.
