wall mounted plasma/hidden cables

In our HT we got our Data Cabler to put a provision for wall mounted TV in. It basically consisted of two wall plate brackets (tv height and normal lowline…

Help with wall mounted TV's

I agree with fitting it behind the TV if there's enough room and it doesn't cause airflow issues. Or make up a shelf the exact same footprint as the foxtel…

NBN ready - is this a rip off?

What you can and can't do is different to what you're licensed to carry out. And your Cisco ticket isn't an open cabling license, i'm pretty sure.

Cabling through the builder or after handover?>? cheaper?

The builder will undoubtedly charge a (imo ridiculous) markup for extra power and data...so it'll be expensive.
Having said that, getting cabling done after the fact will also be expensive given…

Our build was pretty feral too...I didn't mind much so long as the finish was done right! Looks great though!

The bottom line is that you just didn't get cat6 as asked for. There is a difference in price, so get on to them about it!

I'd be hoping not to get water hammer in a gas pipe anyway! That'd be a bit of an issue!

Almost 0 chance of water hammer which is great. I assume the plastic pipe is far easier to install than copper too...no need to spend time making bends and firing…
