I have to run satilite to three locations in a bedroom for future use when moving furnature. Should i use coax to those locations or HDMI to all 3 from the closet where the one satilite box will be.
The tv will be the same at any location. Only using one location at a time.

If your going to go ahead and spend the time (I will assume this is post construction so walls are up) and run coax I would also run at least a line or two of Cat 5 cable with it as well. I personally would not waste my time running HDMI due to standards changing but you would always be able to buy an HDMI extender (or HDBaseT modules) for category cable no matter the standard for the future...

That's just my .02 cents:)

If the sat receiver will be in the closet, then coax to the TV locations won't help. You'll need HDMI or 1-2 cat5e/cat6. I would run both.
