Run a new wire because you original is most likely #5 and will give you a green ghost on one side of faces.

I installed this connector just below the cabinet my tv sits on and up through the insides of the cabinet.

The second picture shows the wiring for campground cable, satellite, analog antenna tv, digital antenna tv,

direct tv disaster kit

just received direct tv disaster readiness kit fed ex friday!!!
went on directv internet site,,,wasted 30 minutes trying to find it,,,,gave up ,,,called directv,,,,asked girl why the f--- i couldn't find it,,
even though the part number in big type on the box is DRK something and it says in big letters DISASTER READINESS KIT !!! it is known as the disaster readiness kit to every breathing human being on earth and some animals except for the select few employed by directv inc

so.....ask for it from the " temporary setup equipment " menu

with next day fedex it costs $89 and includes tripod , cable , dual lnb

good luck
kevin
