    its straight coax. our cable blows so we dont want to encourage them by getting their digital cable or their HD package. to the coax switch I go! does this look like a good simple coax switch without much signal loss on both the cable and OTA side? Coaxial A/B Switch: Electronics

    Old Poll: Who is your Cable Company?
