Any recommendations for a specific brand or model of cat 6 or coax extenders? My longest run is about 100 feet and I have 3 cat 6s and 2 coaxes at each TV spot.

42" TV? It's not the size of the TV, since you're running 1080P on anything. It's the distance from the source to the TV. For 100' of run, you're probably not going to be happy with the non-HDBaseT solutions. They're basically hacks that attempt to use multiple Cat6 cables to extend the native HDMI cable. Subject to line loss and interference. HDBaseT is actually a processor designed to send full HDMI signals over a single twisted pair with error checking and correction.Is their that much difference for a 42"? (non HDBaseT)
I would use cat6 as coax is dying out and hard to find. For cat6 I would use Atlona, they are reasonable priced and have a 10 year warranty.Any recommendations for a specific brand or model of cat 6 or coax extenders?

Which is not an HDBaseT issue, but rather a general HDMI distribution issue - and only a problem if you're using a matrix or a splitter to serve multiple rooms. Extenders have no such issue. Search for "HDMI common denominator" for a ton of threads - it's due to the mixing of audio/video capabilities of multiple display locations with a single HDMI-connected source.which is?
