Default Extending coax cable for HD DVR

I need to extend the cable supplied by Directv when they installed it, i'm moving the box to the far side of the living room. I can't find that exact cable so i purchased two 25ft lengths of RG6 750hm coax cable. I figure I can just use these two lengths parallel and attached to the directv cable using f type connecters then on to the box.

Is this the right cable to use? And I will now probably be 40 feet from the splitter, is that too far for a good HD signal?

Thanks for your help.
