Hi guys,

we are currently building now our house. Secondly we won't have a projector provision at a specific point, however i am considering including some provisions here and there.
Would you say is worthwhile for provisions for antenna (coaxial) at 2-3 places, our just get one of the small external antennas that i can take anywhere?
I want put hdmi, for movies i would just be talking my laptop..
Only for cable TV i don't know what provisions to do outside... A cat6 or cat5 for this?

thanks

My guess is you may have not gotten any answers because it seems tough to really understand what your actual question is.

Not sure if it's really what you are asking or not but for my outdoor TV setup I have two CAT6 that go back inside and HDMI baluns on either end, the cable box is inside.

But in general add as much as possible while the house in being built, and not after it's done.

Thanks, yes it is for an outdoor setup that i am asking.
I was thinking the same thing, but it must be expensive to run long hdmi cord right?

Running HDMI long distances can be real iffy. It is best to use an HDMI to CAT6 setup. The transmitter takes the HDMI and converts it, sending down CAT6 wiring, which can be as long as you need and the receiver converts it back. They're not expensive. Check out the selections here...

Sorry, but I still say it's easiest to run a coax and take the cable box outiside. Then you only require short HDMI cables and you don't have the problem of controlling the box from a long distance.
