    Hi all,

    Might just be thick, but I was unsure what type of cable use for their boxes.

    Is it the 50ohm or 75 ohm as I'm looking to move my box?

    Thanks all in advance.

    It'll be 75 ohms.
    This is the standard impednace for satellite and cable STBs.
    50 ohms is used for RF telecommunications.
