I tend to use WF 100, but a lot depends on the length of your cable run.

Roughly how long? 10m? 50m?

Webro WF100 (or equivalent) will be good for most distances.

As indicated by other replies, Webro WF100 is ideal for the job. I normally buy it from eBay, last time I bought it I think it was about £40 including delivery for a 100m reel.
That will give you 4 cable runs from your quad LNB and a bit left over for some shorter length patch leads if you need any for switches etc.

WF100 will be fine. PF100 is another alternative, just a different manufacturer.

Nice one mate, just make sure (I'm paranoid) I can run this straight from my sky dish (which has my sky+ twin cable in) into my freesat enabled tv

I can't think of any ordinary problem to stop it from working.

Personally I would aim for the Webro stuff because some of the other brands use copper foil which is quite thin & brittle, and so cracks off when you try to fold it back over the inner foam insulation before you screw F-connectors over it ( I have some of the poorer stuff, so I "know from experience").

Philex PF100 is a good cable in my experience. Yes, there are other similar looking cables which are not as good. There is also the very real problem of fake cable around.
