Connecting cable TV from the house to the garage

I have cable TV in the house that was installed way back in the 60's. There is one TV in front of the house and a second one in the back of the house with the splitter in the crawl space. Everything in the house is working fine.

I have built a detached garage and would like to have cable TV out there also. I no longer use the TV in the back of the house so I ran a RG-6 quad shield cable from the garage to the house , disconnected the existing cable to the TV in the back of the house, and screwed in the RG-6 cable into the splitter.

I noticed that the center wire coming out of the RG-6 cable is not as long as the old cable that I pulled out, leading me to believe this is not going to work.

Is the connection of the RG-6 cable to this old splitter going to work?

If not what do I need to do?
