I'm getting ready to upgrade my two sat receivers to HD and was wondering if I should replace the RG6 that is 12 years old? I will also be installing a new dish.

if its working ok .. no reason to replace it ... check the connectors and center conductor for corrosion ... it they are .. cut off a few inches and install a new connector
