    I am in the process of wiring my new house, and I need to know what kind of Coaxial I should be running. I am going to be running both DirecTV, and HighDefinition. The longest runs will be about 50 feet or so. Should I be using RG-59, RG-6, RG-11? Is there a certain shielding, or other considerations I should be keeping in mind?

    From what I have read, the quality typically goes from RG-59 to RG-6 to RG-11. If I have a 550 ft spool of RG-11, would I be gaining or losing anything by using it?
