While I agree with the opinions of, "why take the chance?" and run an unsuitable cable in-wall, I'm trying to figure out how someone would know during a pre-owned home inspection that a CL2 cable was run or wasn't run? I've never seen an inspector take a wall plate off, let alone try to figure out what type of low(er) voltage cable was run. You're lucky if an inspector even checks an A/V cable for functionality.
Now, for a new home, I've seen the local city/town inspector check every cable, but that is before the drywall goes up.
Again, while the advise is "spot on" (and CL2 Monoprice is so cheap that it makes no sense not to do it), I'm just trying to understand how this failed inspection would occur?
