Last week I bought a short coax cable from Radio Shack and began having pixelation/tiling problems so I switched back to the long coax that was supplied by Comcast. I'm want to switch to Belden Coax cables from BlueJeans and will be ordering 3 1ft runs and I'm curious whether I'll notice the difference in performance from the Comcast supplied coax? Also, will I notice a difference between the Belden 1505a (RG59) and the 1694a (RG6) at that short of a run? Also, does anyone know where I can buy a quality Right Angle coax adapter? Thanks

I normally use Monoprice HDMI cables but unsure of the coax cables since I was using something similar that was causing pixelation/tiling.

Belden makes a very good coax cable. Comcast uses CommScope cable and PPC for their connectors. I suggest using a tri-shield or better coax cable.

Thanks... is the monoprice or blue jeans cable better than the CommScope cable provided by the cable company?
