    RCA has a short-run, flat co-ax which it says is "perfect" for connecting inside and outside cables for satellites under windows, etc. BUT, it doesn't mention if its RG6 or not. A google search turned up some combination wire (coax, phone, networking,etc. called "ribbon", I think), but I think that's a little much for me.
    I seem to remember hearing about a device you attached to each side of the glass (in my case, a sliding door) and it passed the signal through. Is this still around, or was it a bad application that has since died?
    Anyone have any ideas?
    Thanks!

    If it is for satellites, then it has to be RG-6. (They know that). I once ran regular RG-6 from my balcony to inside by looping it around the sliding glass door. (The outer, sliding door had a rubber bumper at the end, so if it was opened all the way, the cable wouldn't get squished). It took more length, but worked perfect. Be creative!
