Is it possible to have CT100 coming in from dish and then to join to Co-axial to get to receiver. I cant do a compete run of CT100?

You might get away with a very short run of normal coax, but I would not advise it, you leave yourself open to high signal loss and potential interference.

Depends how far in from the dish you mean. A couple of metres? Ten meters?

Physically possible (CT100 is coaxial BTW), but if your existing cable is a plain old TV downlead, you're going to attenuate the signal too much.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Run the receiver at the end of the CT100 and then use the existing UHF cable as (God) intended.

However, you can't always get F-Plugs and barrel joiners to fit properly onto normal TV coax - if that happens then get some PLG62 plugs from Grandata (http://www.grandata.co.uk/). See below.

These will fit onto CT100 but have the normal "IEC" TV coax plug at the mating face.

If you do this, make sure you use an all-metal TV coax joiner - not the ones with plastic bodies!

Note: Grandata are a very cheap source for all sorts of aerial/sat connectors, including barrel connectors - typically, a bag of 10 is around £1 + P&P & VAT
