    Default Cut my Sky cable - can I fix it?

    The ivy up the side of the house has been going mental, to the point where the Sky signal is coming and going, as the ivy engulfs the dish. So I've just been out with my pruning shears and accidentally pruned the Sky cable. How much of a disaster is this? Or like with ivy, will the pruning of the cable make the signal grow back stronger? Thought not

    Pining for the fjords? What kind of talk is that? And why did he fall flat on his back the minute I got him home?

    You need a coaxial coupler. EBay is likely to be your only hope I'm afraid. No idea where you'd get one these days on the high street

    I wouldn't be using any couplers external to the house.
    Screwfix have suitable cable and plugs - replace the cable.

    Correct, any John's will just let water in, just as easy to replace the cable

    Nah, bit of heat shrink on the top and it'll be good as new.

    You have heat shrink.
    Daft lad in Chorley isn't likely to have any.

    I always smear outdoor cable joins with silicone sealant. Never had a problem.
