I wondered about the signal issue...
When I moved in I ripped out all the old crappy RG59 in and out of the house. I was disgusted how they ran so many cables on the outside of the house, and on the outside of walls! They ran them around door frames, and al the top of the walls next to the ceiling. They just poked a hole through to the rooms.
I ran ALL NEW Quad Shielded RG6 though the entire house. I ran it IN WALLS. It was a huge pain in the ass, and was expensive, but I also ran 4 cat6 drops to every room at the same time. Two cable, and 4 cat6 drops in every room in the house.
It come from the node (which is right behind our house) and into the house, and into my server room. It goes ao an Antronix CMC2002F 2-Way Splitter where one output goes to the cable modem, and the other to an Antronic CMC20085-A 8-Way Splitter. I feed the individual coax drops from the 8-Way splitter. I only connect drops that are actually live. The others are capped.
For power, I think I'll take a cheap 1u PSU (250W PSU
And follow this Instructable
to convert it. I only need the 5v Rail, and 250 is more than enough.
I broke down and took it apart. It was pretty easy, and it looks pretty straight forward inside. I can use the back piece to create a template to cut the back of the chassis.
The only thing I need to figure out is what is the positive and ground for the power supply terminal. Can anyone read the PDF
and tell me what is what?
