I am buying a new HDTV and I need to put in a different cable drop for the tv. am I ok using RG6 for the drop or should I go all the way back to the dish with new cable. The dish and cable are about 4 years old. THanks for any help.

Depending on what part of the cable is exposed to the environment you should be able to utilize the same cable. Otherwise you could check the continuity to verify that it is still good and if not then just go with new RG6 and gold connectors.

You are getting a new HDTV ready TV, how about the IRD? Or are you going to just use an off air HD antenna to pick up your locals in HD?

Have fun
