You don't need Redmere for only 12'. You're probably overdriving your system. If you do have to do Redmere, place it (only 1) at the source, not at the display.

I just made up a map of my house and numbered each outlet and stuck it to the inside of the panel's door. Cables are numbered accordingly.

Minimum (2) RG6 and (2) CAT5e to each location. Three CAT5e or CAT6 would be better. One for phone, 1 for network, 1 for HDBaseT.

Well, filtering was good enough to cascade several of them to distribute 48 analog channels (and, eventually, ~15 or so ATSC channels) utilizing the amps mentioned earlier in this thread. Yes, clean...

I just saw your earlier postings in this thread where you mentioned those Toner equalizers. I, too, am a fan of those. Excellent little units.

We used Altronix SMP3s to drop the 24VAC to 6VDC. We also had network switches that we ran off the same line. They were 7.5VDC, so we had some other power modules that we built for them.

Most manufacturers list the loss at the low end, while a few list the loss at the high end. The 3.5 does kind of sound a little better than the 4 does, but that splitter that is labeled 3.5 loses...

Yes, 10/100 networks run on 2 pairs.

That's a telephone distribution module. While there may be a CAT5e jack at each location, they are wired for telephone. Just get 8 CAT5e jacks and 2-port...

Yes.

As part of that, remove the splitter that currently feeds the Living Room and the FROG and place a barrel connector there. Use that splitter in your living room.

Yeah, I discovered that. I don't know why anybody would want to pay for stereo in 480i.

Apparently they're part of KUPX, channel 16. They come up as Showtime - 16.90; Starz! - 16.95; & Airbox - 16.96. All of them are scrambled channels.

30 years is plenty of time for oxidization and other forms of corrosion to build up. It would not be a bad idea to replace it.
