Am I the only one who got "overly complicated" and read the part where the CATV installer ran all new wiring to the first floor outlets? If he did so, and ran his own drop to feed this service, where would anyone with half a brain find it appropriate to disconnect wiring that is totally unrelated to the wiring for the existing second floor wiring? According to Hal's original post, if I understood correctly, there was only existing wiring there for the second floor of the house.
