    Hey guys, I was doing a project about VoIP, and came out with few questions out of curiousity.

    Co-ax cable internet: I know how the receiver looks on client side (modem) but what kind of equipment do they use to "embed" the internet signal onto co-ax??

    Is it possible to transmit telephone and/or TV channels on Cat 5 (over long distances) if so, what kind of equipment is needed for that. Some kind of embedder, and separator on client side???.... has this been done??

    Thanx a bunch

    phone over cat5=easy, tv over cat5 will not work (well) for that itd be best to digitize, compress and transmit

    as far as the cable co side of coax no clues

    don't forget that the usable distance of cat5 is only 330 feet, so you'd need a repeater every 330 feet, and that would be cost prohibitive.

    You can transmit a simple video signal over CAT5 without any modifications (as in an RCA out) but still not recommended for long runs.
