We have a pretty nerdy TV set up going here. Due to the fact that we only have one spot to get the southern shot needed, the Direct TV antenna feeds parallel outputs several hundred feet to my office. From there, one signal is re-xmitted up to the house on five of the ten, 500 foot runs of twisted pairs of CAT5 connecting my office to the house. From there, the remote control is transmitted from the house down to my office to control the DTV receiver. I also have two phone lines, and now I want to network our computers. So, since I've used up all ten pairs, I need to put in another 500 run of CAT5. :grumpy: I really thought that ten pairs would do it, but I never saw the DTV thing coming. Of course we may not be here long enough to worry about it.
