So I'm finishing my basement, and am running all the data/com lines. Obviously I want the best cable I can afford for future-proofing (if there is such a thing).
I can't decide between a single RG6 for everything (satellite and cable TV), or one high-end for satellite and a cheaper one for cable. I thought it would be best to use one for everything, but due to cost I am not sure if high-end low loss digital cable would be overkill for CATV (I should note though that I do have broadband cable modem).
For the all-in-one cable, I am looking at Belden 7916A, which is quad shield RG6 sweep tested to 3Ghz. I am not sure if I really need quad, but thought it might be best for the CATV runs.
Or, I could get Belden 1694A (low loss RG6 swept to 3Gz, non-quad) for satellite and a cheaper RG6 for cable.
Or, just get the 1694A for everything.
PS- recommendations for network cable welcome too (looking at Commscope ultramedia)
