What's considered a long TV run?
I consider 100+ feet to be a long run.
60 to 80 foot runs using Clad won't cause problems?
As long as it's good quality wire it should be fine.
The 3Ghz, RG6 you can buy at places like Home Depot, Menards, etc is pretty good cable. The cable you buy at Radio Shack is garbage
Are there any Radio Shacks left since their bankruptsy ?
The stores seem to be closed but there are many authorized dealers around the country.
Can't remember the last time I was at a RadioShack but I usually get my cable online. What made the RadioShack cable a bad choice? Was it just not certified for 3Ghz or something else?
The tech that did my HwS install years ago asked if I wanted to hook in my 129 wing dish through the port on the LNB, but he'd need some tin foil to cover the 129 LNB on the main dish. So I guess that's all it takes. I recommended half a tin can. He said that he had never tried that.
Just ordered the second H3 for a dual install.
Sent from my SM-T280 using the SatelliteGuys app!
It's really not necessary to cover it up. It'll use the better signal, but yeah, you can do that
Thanks! Nice to know. And I meant a pop can. So much easier to do.
The best of two sources. Love it.
I always imagined tin foil or a can would heat up in the sun and melt the plastic on the LNB
Possibly in Phoenix, but I think San Fran is safe lol
I save all my tin foil for hats, don't waste it on TV stuff.
The San Francisco area is full of microclimates. North, east, and south bay areas can get quite warm (90's, sometimes low 100's) in summer.
I never would have thought it got that warm up there, although, with warm winds off the warm Pacific, I guess that makes sense
Um, no, actually the Pacific is not warm up here, it is in the south, but we get hot winds from the interior. Where I live we get a sea breeze in the mid afternoon and it is too cold outside, in the middle of summer, to be without a jacket. Just one of those microclimates....
