Anyone know if it's possible to get a single-socket sized faceplate
which has these 3 connectors available ? Googling for a few minutes
didn't throw anything immediate up.
I want to run a network cable into my existing aerial/satellite
faceplate, to keep things tidy.

It might be worth a dig through CPC's site. They have quite range of
faceplates with allsorts of connectors on them. You could use 2 x
F-type (satellite connector) and 1 RJ45. F-type out performs Belling
Lee (normal TV aerial connector).
I have not seen any that can go in a single faceplate. Double versions
are easy either with ready made plates like:
or with euromod modules. But most dual TV or TV + Sat modules are two
mods wide, and hence don't leave space for the RJ45
Don't think I've seen a way to make that up using modules.
You can use modular systems to snap what you want into, but it would
need to be a double size.
Here at Lowe Towers, I use an arrangement of 'twin single' faceplates,
with a special twin back-box which allows for two singles, not a double.
One side has a normal dual-sat / UHF / VHF plate, and the other has a
dual cat6 RJ45. It's quite tidy.
Buy a two moduule RJ45 faceplate, an rj45 module, an equally wide blank
plate, and two F barrels (couplers) with nuts.
Mount the F barrels on the blank face plate, securing with the nuts.
I have done this though I just used one F barrel.
You may want to add two F elbows depending on how the cable enters the
www.Satcure.co.uk sell the F barrels, nuts, plugs and elbows that you
