Thats a good point, in poor signal areas decent cable makes all the 
difference.  I got 100 metres of digital cable from a local electrical 
trade counter for I think about £30 which is the same stuff as what 
Sky/Virgin Media use.  Instead of plastic insert its more of a foam type 
insert and I think it's got extra shielding too.
