Satellite requires dedicated coax for each receiver. Cable can be split in media closet.
All periphery is housed in the closet. I ran 2 CAT6e runs to each TV location for redundancy and PIP. Ran 4 runs to Living room TV (because I have ADD and am intrigued by watching 4 shows/games at once).

Ok. There is one (1) coax run in my house. From outside to the media closet. From there, everything passes through an 8x8 (8 in 8 out) Matrix, then through CAT6e cable and converted to HDMI at the TV.
