That only means you have a signal sufficiently strong, it can still be
leaking like a sieve. While it's the cable company that can get fined
for the leakage, you should be concerned as well since this leakage can
interfere with over the air signals like police / fire / air traffic
radio. Also realize that you'll only see the signal degradation on
analog video channels, the digital channels will mask this.
You call the cable company and tell them to put a jack in.
It will be cheaper than all the bits 'n pieces and you'll be sure of a good
COAX is a SEALED cable (shielded) so you don't want anyplace where signal
will leak out or in.
