Ultimate with 4 or more TVs on Cat5/6

Hello everyone

I have been reading this forum for a few weeks and must say, I have learned a lot here. With the wealth of information here I wouldn't have posted anything but I do have one question that was briefly touched upon by Mtsguy in another post and I kind of need a little more clarification.

The installers on this forum recommend running cat5 or cat6 instead of coax (rg6) to each TV but from my understanding, each TV must be on it own port on the 2wire. Because the 2wire has only 4 ports, how are 4 or more TVs hooked up using only cat5/6? Can I run one cat5/6 to the 2nd floor and then use an ethernet switch to split to two 1200's? Would this work or even be allowed?
