I suppose it "could" depending on your local code...but it's very doubtful. Phone, Ethernet, Television, Sound have no inspection requirements where I am.

That is covered on the rough-in inspections where I am.

That will depend on your area. Where I am, they don't care what you do with low voltage as long as you don't run it into the same box or conduit as line voltage.

Here coax is considered Low-voltage and is not an inspection item. Reason being, like Telco, networking, antenna, catv, speakers, video camera systems, alarm wiring, they are considered retro items. Only big thing that is inspected is the grounding systems, which has to follow the latest code for our area, which is the 2008 NEC.
