4.5 Ghz vs 3.0Ghz RG6

I am getting the 771 searching for SAT error. I'm 90% sure the issue is most likely the 2.5 Ghz cable I ran for dual tuner hookups for my HD receivers. After I looked at the cable DTV ran was 3.0 Ghz and read in the forum that 3.0Ghz is required I found 4.5 Ghz cable? Well it only cost a few dollars more for 4.5Ghz cable so I fugred I'd run that instead (should be better/overkill/still work)? So
My question to all will 4.5 Ghz work?

I have a Zinwell WB85 multiswitch. The compression connectorss I have are 3.0Ghz rated? not sure on the wall plate couplers?


and..... maybe a dumb question here, but if someone installs 4.5 Ghz RG6 cable shouldn't they use 4.5 Ghz connectors and couplers? I see the 4.5 Ghz cable, but no connectors or couplers above 3.0 Ghz?

Thanks

The problem is not in your cable. To many variables to pinpoint without more info, but I have seen HD systems run just fine with r59. Did you typo on your multiswitch? If you are running newer HD equipment you need the WB68
