Looking to build new house due to recent CHCH events. As part of the build i would like to try and put in some structured cabling. My budget isnt massive so i will try and do most of the work myself, should be able to access the house during framing stage to drill holes, run cables etc.. Have some time up my sleeve to prepare but figuredi would post here and get some advice.
the goals of the project are to allow
1. network and telephone in all bed rooms ( pretty standard ), will generally be using wifi modem/router but would like LAN aswell.
2. Sky installation, ideally distributed around the main rooms in the house, looking at cat5 and HDMI distribution, but wondering what other options, what is the most cost effective etc..
3. Accounting for Home Audio, this is really just in teh lounge, i have previously wired up existing house with in wall cabling and banana sockets etc..
Biggest issue really is Sky Tv, and getting a quality picture around the house, Lounge, Living, Master Bedroom etc, ideally with HDMI. Would be NICE but not essentially to have IR so i can control sky in bed room and decoder else where. Just want advice on how i should go about this, even if its just laying the cables not and doing the hook up later, what is the min i need for now,
Any advice, of links to existing topics would be helpful :)
