Long time no see! I spoke with you on this forum way back regarding the MATV system in Willandra Village (260 units) as I fought with management to get it upgraded.
Long story short - we now have a fibre backbone and fibre feeds to 22 clusters where media converters then feed - Wait for it - mainly RG59 to the units. The fibre has made a fast improvement NOW but I am certain that the old 'legacy' RG 59 (air) aged about 20 to 30 years and PAL wall plates will eventually breakdown and cause big problems.
Do you have a copy of the AS/NZS 1367:2007 standard? I would like to be able to quote chapter and verse (I reckon it is Section 5 pages 55 to 70) on what we all know to be a totally unsatisfactory set up so that residents are not saddled with future maintenance costs.
Sadly, only available on second hand market @ $$$
Agree it is fantastic. But at an OUCH price - just managed with JB 20% off plus 5% coupon sale.
Have to be prepared to pay much more for multi channel music, but there are limits. For example, sticking with Dark Side of the Moon SACD even though it is ranked lowly. BDA (#2 on poll) is ridiculously expensive.
