I'll apologize in advance for the dumb question, which I think probably has a straightforward solution, but one which eludes me as I'm not super-familiar with how to distribute AV signals.
Anyway, I plan to have two inputs coming into my house through coax cable - one from the local cable provider and one from a roof-mounted antenna. Not sure if it makes a difference, but the cable provider provides digital cable only and that line will also be used for internet access. I'm hoping to be able to use the roof mounted antenna for both analog and digital signals.
There will only be one location where the cable modem will be connected. There will be about 12 locations throughout the house with coax outlets and TVs of various sizes and shapes. Unlikely that more than 3 will be used at any given time.
Anyway, what I'd like to try and figure out is whether or not there is an easy way to enable each location to access either the OTA antenna signal or the cable signal (presumably using the cable provider's set top box at each location in the house where desired). I've not done this before and am not quite sure how this can be done, assuming it is even possible. If at all possible, I'd like to avoid running a second coax line to each location (i.e. one for OTA, one for cable).
Any suggestions would be most appreciated.
