Coax cable continuity checking

Over the years I've had many cable providers but I haven't had cable in like 10 years.  Near the TV in my living room - I have a cable that comes up from the floor that leads to an area near the back of the house where there a bunch of different cable connector.  The question is - what would be the equivalent of a telephony cable toner for coaxial cable?  I was thinking I would like to have a digital antenna for getting better digital OTA signal but avoid running a new cable.  But I don't know which of the connectors would feed the current run.  Thank you.

Coax cable has another relevant parameters, not only continuity must check. Attenuation is very important parameter on this kind of conductors. Having a multimeter this article could be very interesting for you: http://handiham.org/drupal2/node/72
I agree with Drashiel post, a simple ohm meter can help you check which cable is which.
