I want to rewire the cable wires in my house that are responsible for cable television. I have many splitters that split the signal to my televisions and internet. For your reference, I have 5 televisions and 1 internet where there needs to be an outlet for a connection. (I have wireless, so I just need one internet outlet.
My cable company uses fiber optics for their wiring but of course the inside of my house uses coaxial cable.
This brings me to my question. Should I rewire the house to use 100% fiber optics? If so, what type should I use? I'm not sure where the origin is for my cables, maybe in the basement. I don't know what the ends of the fiber optic cables look like so forgive me for the following question... in the "origin" area of the house where the cables start for cable tv, are the outlets designed to plug in coaxial cable? Can fiber optics be connected?
I have no idea if indeed fiber optics are recommended or not but I've heard of all of the benefits they offer, at least for outside wiring. But I've not read very much on inner-house wiring and fiber optics.
Since I have so many required "outlets" (5 tvs and 1 internet for the cable modem and router) is it impossible to not use a splitter at all?
Thanks and forgive me for my "newbieness!"
I truly am glad I found this forum!
P.S. and one quick question, can people who use satellite utilize fiber optics for in house wiring and is this recommended? (Just curious in case I ever switch; but I probably won't.)
