Electronics Repair Questions? Ask an Electronics Technician
Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.Please attach a picture to your Reply showing the cable end. Also, please read off and tell me, what numbers/letters are on the outside of the cable(s) ?
Thanks for posting your reply and that picture... give me just a bit of time to examine it and be sure of my answer, please...
So in short you wish to know whether you can use DISH cable for DirecTV cable?
And/or, is that the question, or is there more, or less, to the question than that?
(Of course, the previous owner *might* have had problems, in the cabling... but that's not likely unless the cable looks as if it has obvious problems...?)
Old cables were used with DISH. They are LRC SNS 1P6 (which means not so much a cable, as the cable-end.) The number on the outside of the cables, on their insulation, is more critical.
They should be good for DirecTV. DirecTV requires CAT6 or RG-6 cable. That's about it.
Do you need further information? if not, are you willing to rate my answer and my work on your question?
Yes, RG6 CATVX will work! RG6 is what you need, and CATVX is one type of outer shield/insulation with a certain type of fire resistance.
The picture doesn't tell me much except obviously, some satellite dish using network or other.
