WTB coax adapter cable for InfiniTV 6 PCIe

The tip broke off of my adapter cable and I cannot reattach it to the tv tuner. Hoping to find a replacement ASAP.

What have you all got? Will happily pay market value and shipping to take it off of your hands. TY

Can anyone confirm if this cable will work?

It looks different than the one that came with the InfiniTV 6 P'CIe. Image

I've ordered this item as well and it seemed to work just as effectively as the original. They also sell a right angle connect version for those with HTPC cases. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CK ... UTF8&psc=1

Since you are asking about replacement cables... The mod that I did to my card fixes problems that can occur with the adapter (breaking it or losing it) and might help others that find this post. All it took was cutting a notch in the PCI cover near the screw. A dremel made it really easy and only took 5 minutes. I also added some right angle coax adapters so that the cable inside the case does not stick out really far, and so that the outside cable hangs straight down.

Here are some links to compatible adapters. Two lengths of right angle connectors and a straight connector.

And here are images of my mod from the inside and outside. It takes the smaller adapter cord and puts it in your case so that it cant break or get lost.

Dam, that is a great idea. wish I thought of that years ago. Not that it would save it from being unplugged (I never have that issue) but, to make it more like an appliance.
