RG6 was appropriate when all video was analog. That's usually not the case now. "High-speed" HDMI cables plus cat-6 network cables are more appropriate now for digital video signals. However, always allow for needing more cables than you expect -- either include a pull-string and use an oversized (or multiple) conduit, or pull extra cables to begin with, or both.
Bear in mind that many satellite receivers and cable boxes tend to have HDMI compatibility problems and often need to be connected directly by HDMI to the display instead of being routed through an audio/video receiver. As a result, additional digital audio connections (coax or optical) may need to be provided between the satellite boxes and the A/V receiver.
