Many people have OTA in addition to a pay-tv service. I know of some who even have cable, satellite, and OTA. While you may not use it now, are you absolutely certain you will not in, say, three...

My only comments will be to the structured cabling outlets. Why mix them up with some CAT5e and some CAT6. There's no advantage, and the cost difference isn't enough to make it worth your while. ...

Yet, if you buy the cables individually, the cost for the coax and CAT6 is ~$0.25/ft., and individual cables are much easier to pull and to work with than bundled cables. For your long HDMI runs,...
