What cable should i be getting for a run of 25-30m?(12m buried). I've been searching around and i'm just getting confused by all the letters and numbers tacked on the end:confused . The prices seem to differ dramatically too......even for the same grade cable. Could someone please point me in the right direction and tell me what all the grades mean. Thanks;)

If you are burying cable, then bury it in a hosepipe, or use specialist cable like WF100 UG (underground) Green or WF125 UG Green, if you use a hosepipe, then I would use a foam filled cable like Webro WF100 or 125 (100 should be OK).

The 125mm core version is lower loss than the 100mm. :)

Thanks for the info guys. The website link was especially helpful!!.
Managed to shorten the run to around 20m by going under the floorboards, so the foam filled 100 should do the trick.
Went down my local TV shop earlier and the guy quoted silly money for a 30m length:rolleyes: . Anyone know of a good online cable supplier?. Thanks;)
