How many cables should I run?


I have a satellite system & an Off-Air rooftop antenna for the local channels. They run into a combiner so there is only 1 coax going into the house. I would like to add a preamp to my amplified antenna. Is my current setup ok, or should I run a separate coax into the house for the antenna?

Tech Tip:

You will need to run a separate TV antenna line into the house. The satellite receiver most likely will not have enough current available to power both the LNB’s at the satellite antenna and a preamplifier/amplified antenna.
