Is it a satellite or aerial connection?

I was tempted so say "Mabel" but really I suspect it's called an HDMI cable:

Its a satellite connection.

Don't get sucked into paying $75 for a HDMI cable - Harvey Norman in particular I have found are bad for this. They will try to tell you it will improve picture quality but HDMI is digital so either it works or it doesn't, you can't get better picture by paying $100 for a cable.

so you want to extend your coax cable from the wall to your tv?

if thats the case you'll want some RG6 Coax and some connectors

In saying that, don't buy $5 HDMI cables off Trademe either. While the picture quality is not an issue, I've had a few that have broken within a few months.

Out of curiosity when you say they that they have broken , does this mean you plugged them in once and after a few months have crapped out or were they unplugged regularly ?
