long coax OK?

Message 1 of 3
(211 Views)

I am just installing FIOS.  I will have 150 feet of RG-6 coax from the FIOS entry point in the house to the set-top box.  Will this work OK, or is it too long of a run?

Thanks for any advice

You may want to check out this thread from a previous forum participant that also had a long cable run. Keep in mind that the impedance of the cable itself will cause signal loss, as will the splitters. You may need amplification. Check out the thread and the response from Keyboards, one of this forum's more knowledgeable members:

Good luck.
