Question

Help for an Old and Frayed Cable Outlet

There are two cable outlets that connect to my unit. One was used to install my chromebook with no difficulty. I want to hook up a new TV with cable but the other cable looks frayed and as if it would not hold. I have not the first idea about how to address this. I find it hard to believe I am the first in the history of home installations to face this issue. Can I 'add on' to the working outlet? Is there a way to update the old one or create a bridge? Any help would be very much appreciated.
Thanks!

Clarification Request
Without knowing the exact cable and connector type?

Sorry no. It's a job for an electrician until more is known.

The forum supports pictures so take a snap, make it good and clear, put it on imgur and use the new forum feature.

Answer
Youtube and other forums have DIY specifics on this stuff

If you want to get your feet wet with repairing the outlet, that's where I might start.
