locked Re: Running cable through wall

That depends on what your home is made of.  I just have fiber siding with standard sheetrock walls.  I just purchased a very long drill for drilling through walls and drilled a hole the exact size of the cable I wanted to pass through.  After passing the cable through I made a drip loop with the cable on the outside and sealed the hole with RTV.  I also used through wall cable feedthroughs that RadioShack carried.  I think I have seen them at altex before as well.  When I leave it is easy to patch the holes so there is no sign of the hole for future residence.
