    1st fix - rewire - house has already got an aerial, owners not sure if there are going to get a dish.

    Was going to put a distribution box up in the loft and wire from there - if I use SAT cable to all TV points will it still be OK for terrestrial digital?

    Yes, got that - actually the last time I did this I took 3 cables to the main TV point and 1 to all the others.

    If the customer options for it, might be worth taking two cables to each point. If they was to get multi room it would save them at a later date
