I'd like to keep everything as tidy as possible and so am considering using a face plate with two sockets - one for an aerial type connection and the other for the satellite connection. I had a look at Maplin and can see a couple of possibilities that I assume will do:

Is it worth going for the second one, a screened face plate? Exactly what does screening do? Will I have to have special cable to use it or is there any special way that I have to wire?
Also, how do the external satellite and aerial cables connect to the face plate? Do they have to be terminated in a particular way? And what about the internal leads connecting the sockets on the face plate to the TV and satellite receiver - do they have to be male/male, male/female or some other odd combination of terminators.
Finally, is it worth getting a decent quality low-loss aerial cable reel to connect the external TV aerial to the face plate, or will standard coaxial cable be good enough?
