Ohms to a cable box
« on: August 09, 2022, 10:52:24 AM »
Anybody know what Ohm cable is used coming into the house to a cable box?
Is it 75 or something different? It is BNC connectors.

Thanks
Don

I'm pretty sure it is an F connector

I do believe your right. It is an F connector.
First time I've ever compared the two.
Thank you sir.

The connector for video is generally 75 ohms... like the 'F' connector.
