New Coax
« on: June 20, 2017, 06:20:29 PM »
Ok I have a 2008 Sunstar that we just got and have a dish network Wally receiver which seems to require RG6 coax. Which I doubt my home has in it. How do you run new coax? Is there a specific route.

You probably won't notice the difference between RG6 and RG59 within the walls. RG59 has less than 1 dB per 100 feet additional loss compared to RG6.

The Satilite dish is automatic and receives it power to search from the receiver will 59 carry that?

Yes.  Just make sure there aren't any splitters in the line that will block the D.C.

I agree the short run of RG 59  won't likely bother the system,  HOWEVER  I like to do it properly.

Personally What I did was find a path to outside, from inside (Several such paths exist) and run new RG-6

But as others have said, 59 will iikel be OK.

I know there is a "Recommended maxium length of cvable" for RG 6 it is something like 200'
For 59.. 50 foot. 

If that helps
