Thanks for the responses thus far...very helpful.
So, let's say I put up the plywood base, a power box (two outlets), a cabinet enclosure from Hoffman or Elk, and then I need to layout the rest. Any thoughts on this type of layout? Am I missing anything? (BTW, telephone is managed in the basement and each room has CAT5 connections for it)
I have a Living Room with 2 RG-6 connections and 2 CAT-6 connections. I am going to have a dual-tuner HDTV DVR in this room (satellite or cable) and wired/wireless internet.
I have a Bedroom with 2 RG-6 connections and 1 CAT-6 connection. I am going to have a single-tuner HDTV Receiver (satellite or cable) in this room and wired/wireless internet.
I have a Den with 2 RG-6 connection and 1 CAT-6 connection. Here, I might have a single-tuner HDTV Receiver and will definitely have wired internet.
I have four incoming RG-6 connections that comes from the roof (for satellite/antenna). I have one incoming RG-6 connection that comes from the basement (for cable video and/or broadband internet) I have one incoming CAT 5 connection that comes from the basement (for DSL Internet)
I will have a D-Link Wi-Fi hub for the CAT 6 connections (can utilize an incoming DSL Modem or Cable Modem)
I'm thinking of getting a Passive Video Splitter for land-based video (Comcast) and a Powered Multi-Switch for possible satellite-based video (DirecTV).
Anything else to watch out for or think about?
