This job in Redcliffe today reminded me how important hiring the BEST TV Antenna Installer is.
We installed 3 new TV points for this large family in Redcliffe so that the growing kids can have their own space and watch their favourite TV shows. This was all good except while we were there, the home owner showed us the TV point that was installed by their last TV Antenna Installer. 😱😱😱.
Yes, you are seeing that correctly. The installer installed the TV point into the ceiling and left the cable hanging from the ceiling, into the back of the TV. 🤷♂️
Apparently, he claimed that it was not possible to get the cable down the wall cavity to install the point behind the TV (where it would ideally be). So this was his solution, dangle the cable from the ceiling...
Now, I’ll admit that there are some homes with particular construction or design elements that make it difficult or in fact impossible to run cable or install features. BUT THIS... was plain laziness or lack of knowledge on the part of the installer. This was a standard plaster wall with a cavity and whilst it required drilling through some noggins to get the cable down, it was by no means an impossible installation.
For this customer, we were able to install a new TV point behind the TV in the living room (the first room you enter in this home) and get rid of this hideous cable dangling from the ceiling.
They were thrilled.
It was a stark reminder for us that all installers aren’t created equal and it pays to have a second opinion if you aren’t happy with the solution recommended by your trades.
I’m so happy that we were able to help this Customer and give them a solution to their TV Point problem.

I get so many questions and calls from customers who just want some help or advice relating to their audio visual technology. I thought it would be a good idea to start capturing some of the common questions and try to provide an online resource for people to get information. So, I hope that you will find some of the information contained in these articles useful. I will try to add as many new relevant subjects as possible to keep you all in the know. I really do want to make AV easy for you too.
