How to run coaxial cable for TV
I'm building a new house and considering running coaxial cable for television myself (rather than having the electrician do it) prior to drywall installation. I plan to have coaxial cable run to 9 different locations within the house.
My question is what is the best way to do this: (a) 9 individual runs from the TV locations back to the equipment room (i.e., 9 "home runs"), (b) a lesser number of runs with some splits for adjacent rooms, or (c) some other way? I ask this question in part over concern about signal loss.
Also, if I do 9 individual home runs, what do I use to connect all of those coaxial lines together with the line coming into the house from my cable provider?
Thanks in advance. Hope i'm not about to get in over my head.
