I built a cabin about 200' behind the house. I currently have a Joey out there running off Ethernet which is working fine. I'm trying to future proof it before I finish the drywall. Would RG6 be a good choice between the house and cabin?
The formula is 200' total, from dish to hopper to joey. 150' from Dish to Hopper/receiver.
To get more technical, and Sheridan will probably correct me if I'm off, but this is how we were taught. every 10' of cable adds 1 dBM of line noise. Normally, at the dish, the dBM's are anywhere from approx 26 - 33 dBM's, depending on which bird you're looking at. Every connector adds 1.5 dBM's, so a barrel connector is adding 3 dBM's. Once you get to 50, you're probably going to start seeing signal loss issues.
Regardless, you want to use RG6 and in t heory, solid copper is better for longer runs, but I'm not sure if that's a fact or just an old techs' tale.
Technically it is 100 meters on cat5 cabling. Cat6 will usually buy you some extra distance but at a cost and no guarantees. If you are doing an in wall install definitely. Go with Cat6 cabling and ports.Yea because you can do 333 feet off eithernet with no issues

I have seen 211 and 222 to work of cable 300+ feet, but if the joey will work?
If was me and i am going to run net cable anyway, will definitely run RG6 as well, is not that expensive after all. Solid copper with jell for underground preferably.
