Can I add a few feet of cable to an existing TV cable? Will it mess up the reception or are we past those "olden" days? I bought my wife a new TV for the kitchen and she wants it moved 2 feet:dunno:. I REALLY don't want to follow and replace the existing cable through the walls.

Yes, it will be fine. This is assuming of course that you're going to use connectors and such, and not a coat hanger and twisting it together.

Some loss is expected at every junction. But if one uses good quality cable and a short extension you would need test equipment to notice the drop in signal strength.

Actually the coat hanger was working well until the paper clip fell out of the input.
