Hello All,
I am interrested in adding cable TV jacks in other rooms and would like to know the best way to do this. My house was built in the 40's and has hard wood floor throughout and currently the only TV cable coming into the house is drilled into the hardwood floor which I think is a "no-no".
Would it be advised to add something along the lines of an electrical outlet box for the cable to enter room through?

I would also like to the best way to run the cable from room to room as the best way to fasten to the floor joists.

Thanks you for your help,

plumber Tom

Split the main coming in to the wall locations. As any electrician knows, it's very difficult to "fish" wires (in your case coaxial cable) through lath and plaster walls. I don't know the affect of keep on adding splitters to suit your needs. You may consider purchasing a colored coaxial cable to match your wall, floor, etc. and run it exposed along the baseboards. Good Luck!
