As long as the cable in your house is RG6 coax cable, then it’s exactly the kind of cable that should connect your System receiver to your satellite dish. If your cable is not RG6 coax, you will need to run new wire. It’s important that you use RG6 cable due to the frequency of the digital signals it must carry. RG6 has the correct impedance (75 ohms) and acceptable signal losses at 950 to 1450 MHz.
