Re: Coaxial cable

Solid RG6 Coaxial cable (not the honeycomb type) with screw on connectors preferably. Make sure the F connectors are tightly secured as they may cause pixelation if not.

Re: Coaxial cable

The correct cable for this is RG59 or RG6 using F type connectors. These connectors need to be crimped on with compression tool.

Re: Coaxial cable

You should use rg59, remember you will also need connectors for the coaxial

Re: Coaxial cable

You should get a tech out. But times are hard at the moment. If it's over a short distance it doesn't matter so much. Just pay good attention to the connections. This is where you can cause the most problems.
