Question by Bert Taylor posted 06 Jul 2005
|I am pulling coax to distribute DirecTV in my home. This regards the runs from the multiswitch to the receiver. Since I want to have TIVO/DVR, each receiver requires 2 cables. I can pull "Dual RG6" or 2 separate RG6 to each unit.|
Which spec it more important?
1. Solid copper center instead of copper clad steel OR
2. Quad shielding.
It may just be better to pull the two quad shielded RG6 with solid copper center as I cannot locate Quad shielded "dual RG6" with solid copper center.

The proper RG6 must be Quad shielded, most CATV rated components will fill your need.
BTW If you can find it have one of the cables with a black jacket and the other with a white jacket for ease of identification.
