I am currently having my house renovated and see this as an opportunity to add some new technology . I want to be able to access two sky + hd boxes and blue ray player and possibly free view in at least 4 rooms in the house . At the minute I Am leaning towards the hd anywhere system using cat 6 cableing through the house . I. Propose to have 4 cables to each room from the hub . Is there anything else I should add .
Also what sort of cat 6 cables do I need as I understand there are different types
Any advice would be gratefully received

Great choice of system!

Straight from website faqs:

What is the best type of cable wiring to use?

The baseline cable standard for all HDanywhere SingleWire and TwinWire products is CAT5e. Performance benefits can be achieved by using CAT6 or slightly better still with CAT7, which has thicker copper cores for better signal transfer. Whatever CAT cable type you choose to use, ensure that it is solid core. Stranded core ‘patch’ cabling should be avoided as the signal transfer is heavily reduced.

How should I terminate the cable?

Always terminate the connectors to the 568B wiring standard.
