    I have a joined extention cable running around the house for Sky. The connection has come apart. Can anyone tell me which wires to join to which please.

    4 wire cable from main box

    2 wire going to Sky Box

    Any help would be appreciated as I have tried several combinations without success.
    Thank You

    doesn't matter, only two cables are used in phone lines so as long as the cables correspond at both ends in 2 and 5 it should work, usually blue in 2, yellow and white in 5. hope this helps.

    Sorted. Found the two colours going to A & B from the plug on the extension. Then joined those colours to the two on the second extension. Bingo. It works.
    Thanks for your help.
