Hi all, I'm building a house right now and the time has come to rough in wires and such. My question is this, where should I have the RG6 hooked up to wall plates? Right behind the wall mounted LCD or lower down where I'll have the HD satellite receiver, I was thinking lower. Any input

Always where the receiver sits, never the TV...unless you're going to mount the receiver to watch it instead.

Two wallplates behind the tv, Power and 1 HDMI (from the receiver).

For Sat signals try to ensure that the F81 in the wallplate is rated to 3Ghz, most now have a blue centre insulator, to signify this.

I have 16 possible connections in the wallplates behind my TV; (Not counting Hydro)

Coax, for OTA Signal. = 1
Component x 2, HD. = 6
Composite x 2, SD =6

My HDMI's and Optic Cables run through the wall to behind the TV. All the wallplate outputs are mirrored at the rear of my AV Equipment.
