I don't have any RG6 but for the feed to my Cable Modem and the HDHR Primes. All else is ethernet although the RG6 cabling does exist in the walls because I'm not doing any labor to take it out!

What do you mean by "two others" Two other whats?

If the show got cancelled how is that any fault of WMC?

I don't understand what you mean to say.
