What kind of cable do I need to use to move my TV that connects to DirecTV?

by on July 29, 2012

Q: I have direct tv. They installed a 5 foot cable so I cannot move my TV from its current location. I tried using an adaptor and hooking up a longer cable to move it but the signal is too weak (how convenient). (They can come and put in another line for an additional fee of course). Are there adaptors that will transmit a stronger signal?

    Is this the cable that comes from the satelite? Trace it back and see if it plugs into a splitter anywhere. If it does then replace from the splitter with a longer coax cable.
    You could also try something like the GE AV93203 Cable Extension Adapter that you should be able to purchase at Radio Shack or any electronics store that is close to you.

    If you’re not familiar with Coax Cable, splitters, and frequency’s I would suggest just paying the $50 that direct TV charges to come out or purchase the protection plan from Direct TV for $6 per month.
