I'll try to explain my situation as easily as possible. I want to buy a new HD TV and put it in a room that is only 30 feet from my DTV dish, the same level (third floor) as where the dish is. I already have all the HD dish and stuff (lnb) set up for my older HD TV in another room. There is another cable off the dish that I use to get DTV in my (second floor) living room which goes across the roof, down the side of the house, into my basement, then up into a wall into the living room. In the basement, is a splitter where the cable from the roof ends. If I was to cut that cable, just before it goes into the basement, then drill a hole in the wall where the new HD TV would be, could I put a new crimp (is that what they call it?) on the cut end of that wire and hook it up to my old DTV HD box and get HD? Thanks for any help.
