Can I use a RG-6 cable to extend the Directv cable coming from dish to the house? I installed a new walkway and need 4 more feet of cable. The cable now coming to the house has a external ground wire. I should be able to extend the ground wire.

imho its best to go from the dish to the swm splitter to avoid any issues in the future.
and it does need to be grounded.
i would also suggest putting a pvc pipe under the walkway if the wire runs under it
