Lots of great advice and info. Thanks again. So if I run the cable and cat5 say ten inches above the power i'll be fine. Can I put a box for the coax/cat 5 on one side of the stud and power/recepticles on the other, that will be fine too?
Out of curiousity, what is expected at a rough electrical inspection? What is the most and least that can be accomplished. I know mainly they want to see it opened before the insulation and walls are installed, but can everything else be completed. Recepticles wired, etc. Basically what is the most I can do? I know the inspection needs to be done and signed off before insulation installed and walls hung.
In general 18" is what is recommended for unshielded power cables.
As to distances you will not exceed the maximum run distance for coax or Cat-5 in a typical residence. That being 100 meters/328 feet for Cat-5 and depending on the type of coax and assuming its not going to run Ethernet over it starting at about 700 feet and going up from there.
Best to home run everything back to a central point. For sure do not wire Cat-5 in series.
