I guess I should elaborate a bit. I am setting up the tv in a house with the original 25 year old cables. Replacing the cable might be a problem without busting out a bunch of plaster in the finished basement. In the electrical room, there is an old cable splitter Radio Shack ampifer routing the cable to six points I would upgrade these if there would be a gain in the quality of reception. A surge protector near the tv will probably be added as well.
