Best coaxial cable?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So, I recently upgraded to digital TV with an AlphaCrypt Classic module in my TV. But because there are a few signal drops and many interferences I would like to upgrade the coaxial cable too. One that is high quality and that can handle HDTV without problems.

Can anyone recommend me a good/the best coaxial cable that's high quality and can handle HDTV without problems? Preferably available on eBay UK/US.

Thanks,

Ben

Look into this: [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Motorola-Booster-484095-001-00-Bi-Directional-Amplifier/dp/B000066E6Y"]Amazon.com: Motorola Signal Booster 484095-001-00 Bi-Directional RF Amplifier: Electronics[/ame]

I'm not an expert FYI, I just Googled some guides and saw some info on signal amps.

RG6 is what we have to use for our cable modems and hd box in my area. It has triple shielding which really helps befor i updated our rooms to it i was getting alot of crap coming in on the tv from the circuit box outside. And monoprice is a great place to get stuff im not sure if they ship outside the usa tho.

Any shielded cable should do. Don't run the cable parallel to power cables as that can introduce interference. Also, don't run it anywhere near any sort of motor, or compressor or anything like that.

I'm not an expert FYI, I just Googled some guides and saw some info on signal amps.

First I want to try without signal boosters, if it doesn't work properly with a high quality cable, I'll give the signal boosters a shot. Thanks though!

RG6 triple shielded? Aren't RG6's either double or quad shielded? Well, according to Wikipedia, lol.

Thanks, but it comes with pre-assembled sockets. I'm looking for a cable without. So they fit through the holes in the ceilings.

Thanks for the advice. I'll keep that in mind! Any other good advice?

Best reasonable coaxial cable is quad-shielded.

Look for RG6Q.
