I thought I would make a post to explore what options (if any) people have to recover either their money or force the builder to...

Hi Everyone, I'm having trouble getting information about the type of plugs that are used for satellite television in Bali/Indonesia. Unfortunately, none of our neighbours have a satellite connection and the architect and builders don't know either.
