Nearest Radio Shack should be of assistance.

No such thing as "jack for telephone OR cable TV"...two separate items.

Telephone requires an RJ-11 fitting from the wall as the termination for an existing pre-wired phone wire run.


The cable line requires "F" fittings, female and male connector for 75 ohm prewired cable (RG-59) run.

The ideal way to avoid improper connections and other "less expensive" do-it-yourself problems is to have the proper crimping tools for the different cables.

Cost to do it right yourself?? $75-100

Cost to do it right professionally?? Ditto

Cost to have peace of mind without a mess?


(This is a one-time free deal, no-cost advice)

Good luck!!
