Old coax with a signal amplifier Tags: HDTV Cable Home Theatre Last response: September 24, 2012 5:06 PM in Home Theatre Share foduddy September 24, 2012 3:07:56 PM Hello, I am buying a house that has old antenna coax throughout the house and there is a signal booster in a closet upstairs. There are jacks in every room. Can this be used for cable tv today? More about : coax signal amplifier americanaudiophile September 24, 2012 5:06:46 PM The signal booster and any splitters would have to be replaced for sure. The coax wire may also need to be replaced. If it is RG6 then it will work. RG59 might not. If you want to give it a try start with the furthest run and work your way closer. Can't find your answer ?
