I really realized today how much I miss Sunday football. Oh well. Spent the day trying to wire coaxial cable for the TVs in a future cool basement of mine - but without any luck. This cable is tricky stuff I think. I have been spending gobs of money on special end connectors, crimping tools and all sorts of stuff - but I am only getting static on the TV and I am starting to get rather pissed at it all. It is going to seem pretty defeating to call in the cable guy for this ... maybe Monday I'll head back to Lowes, stare at the shelves a little more and spend some more money on some special do-it tool. Anyone have better luck at this than me?

UPDATE: Finally figured it out! ... geez.

Borrow (or buy) a meter...check your dB...if everything is connected you may just be dropping too much to get a signal. If you are using splitters beware of major signal loss.
