    The wall plate in the office where i took the pic was added by my ISP. The only wires that were in the office were the cat5 going behind the tv. out of the wiring it splits into 4 wires. White, Blue, Black and grey. [​IMG]

    there is the pic not sure how well you can see it.

    Who pulled all the big blue cables into that smart panel?

    Where exactly did best buy pull wires from and too? And are they the big blue ones? if not, what exactly are they?

    Cat 5 is the bigger phone cords. Coax is the screw on wire with one single conductor in the middle. That giant blue stuff is just several of those cables (with phone wire as well) tied together. You should not call the big blue ones cat lines, they are not just cat lines

    Yes the builders and electrician did the whole panel and blue wire. I am not sure where best buy ran there stuff there is so much wire. I just know best buy ran internet to both of the tv's upstairs. But honestly not sure where that wire is.

    Ok, you need to get someone out there that understands these things better than you, not meant to be offensive, just you need someone who understands all this better... I have a feeling that its simply a matter of hooking things up differently, rather than having to run any more wires...

    Hopefully the sup thats out there tomorrow can figure it all out for you.

    I'd also ask that they do some wire matenance and make all that stuff look decent too.

    You seem to have the best handle on this, so I'll leave you to "walk" the OP through what's needed.

    I think we need to direct him to some wiring diagrams.
