I am about to enclose my ceiling where my coax is coming into the house.

How many lines should i have for future proofing? I currently have 3 (2 sat, 1 ant.).


When i upgrade the D* to a triple LNB, will 2 coax cables still be all i need to run to my receivers?


Thanks In Advance for your opinions!

Orion,


For future proofing, I would double it to 6. If you have multiple LNBs and the HD connection, you're automatically going to need at least 3 just for the SAT system. Add one for OTA and that leaves you 2 in case of problems or future changes.

4 for the dish, 1 for OTA, 1 for cableTV. If you don't plan on using all the possible sevices, your plans can change or your extras can be accounted for.

I have found it very difficult to forecast future needs that are driven by technology. If your situation lends itself to conduit, I would highly recommend installing at least a 2" conduit and preferably a 3". However, if there is no way to get to the entrance point in the future, then this is not a workable solution. In any case make sure you use a good quality RG6 coax.
