My 10 year old house has standard coax cable which the previous owner spliced the heck out of to avoid having to pay for multiple 'on' lines (something cable companies used to charge for apparently). I could try to reverse the damage but it would involve crawling through all areas of the house and attic (I'd rather not). Cable reception is still mostly OK despite the damage, but I had the house checked for data access and the Tech just laughed. Since digital cable is all or nothing (?), it might be less susceptible to splices; whereas with analog you lose a bit more strength with every cable length and cut. Would digital cable overcome poor signal strength from splices?
