New install: RG6/U or RG6/U Quad shielded? 110ft run
We're getting a DVR625 w/ the DISH500 dish, but we will have to put it on a pole about 110ft from the receiver. The standard free install won't do the cable part, so I'm doing that.
Question is: For the run, do I want RG6/U or RG6/U Quad shielded?
I'm wondering just how much signal loss one vs. the other would show on a ballpark idea. I'm running two lines, so I'd get a 250ft spool of one them, one runs 39.99, and the other runs 69.99 (quad). I'd be putting connectors on the ends; it's bulk wire. Says made by Zenith on both of them (Lowes).
That being said, is it honestly worth the price differential for that length of a run, the quad over the regular?
Thank you for any help.
