HELP Cable TV w/o coax

by stevekasha / March 10, 2008 4:52 AM PDT

i live upstairs in my house and i have my tv up there just for my ps3 and i wanted to put cable up there, but i dont have a coaxial wall jack anywhere upstairs. I wanted to know is there any other way i can get cable up to the 3rd story of my house , i called comcast they told me they would charge only $25 to hook up a coax wall plate. i wanted to drill a whole but then that would hit my moms ceiling and then i could do it that way ... but im not so sure about that method. i tried running a coax cable down the heater/ac vents and my stupid vents dont go straight to the basement so i dont think that works either. any ideas?

and secure it to the outside or wall. Run it to the next part that has the male/female connection. Put a splitter here.
