New House, New Install ???

I need your advice.

I'm moving into a brand new house next month. Dish will be my primary MCVP, with cable being secondary tv source + broadband Internet.

There are five builder pre-installed cable runs (apparently in a star-pattern) that exit the house thru an exterior wall and are not yet terminated -- just a bundle of five bare RG-6 ends hanging out from a hole in the siding. I assume that the five runs go to the five different rooms with pre-wired cable-type jacks, being LR, BR1, BR2 (office), BR3, and the kitchen.

I plan to do a Dish-mover install, with three 722s for three HD displays, being in the LR, BR1 & BR 2, plus do a "tv2" to two other rooms, being BR3 and the kitchen. I will also have one cable-in for cable tv to the main display in the LR as a back-up, and split to a cable modem. Once the tv stuff is the way I want it, I'll add-in Wi-Fi and a PS3/Blu-ray w/Wi-Fi.

With the above setup, and five pre-wired RG6 runs, will I...

1. have enough runs for the above 3+2 Dish install, or
2. need another run for the Dish install, and/or
3. need an additional run for cable?

TIA for your opinions, ideas and suggestions.

You need separate runs from the house inlet to LR, BR1 & BR 2. You will need an additional rg6 run from the location where the 722 will be installed to the tv2 location (say LR to kitchen and BR1 to BR3). The fourth run from the house inlet could be used to connect cable to the LR tv. The fifth run could be used for an additional satellite receiver location or to deliver cable to the kitchen or a bedroom.

Hope this helps.
