RG6 Through sliding doors?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone. I wasnt sure where to post this but seeing as it involves my satellite STB I figured this would be the place.

I live in a studio apartment with a balcony. My dish is out on the balcony and the cable needs to come through the sliding doors that lead out to my balcony. During the summer I just ran the cable through the door opening and then slammed the door on the cable (crude I know, but it did the trick). Now that Winter is here its just not gonna cut it. It lets too much cold air in. I was wondering what solutions are out there for this kind of problem? I've heard of some people using flat RG6 and running it just under the doors but everywhere I've gone they act like I'm crazy when I ask if they have flat RG6. Even then I'm not sure it would work.

I'm also not looking to spend a ton (I'm sure there are some fancy wi-fi type setups out there).

Any ideas?

Yeah I've been able to find them online but am having trouble finding them in Canada. I will just have to go ahead and Ebay it or something

I would just drill a hole next to your door as low and out of sight as possible.

Then fill it with spackle in the inside and RTV on the outside when you move out.
