Default What Cables to use

I am fishing cables from TV's to VCR's etc. I intend to have a satellite receiver and thought while I am doing this I should go ahead are run what I need as cable so that when the time is right to install the satellite antennae and receiver the cables to the various TV's are there. So what cable or cables will be used from the receiver to the TV's. Or are there several types? What's recommended?

I have the King-Dome Trac-King In-Motion Satelite Dome, and it uses two RG6 Coaxial cables from the dome to the back of the receiver. From the receiver to the TV it uses HDMI.

Let me add that if we are talking about a High Definition setup here, (and why wouldn't we?), VCR's displaying at 250 lines of resolution do not look good on a set designed to display at 720, or 1080. Obsolete is the word that comes to mind. Even DVD's at 480 lines of resolution are only 'acceptable'. High Definition Blu-Ray DVD's, and of course the HD content provided by the carrier blows away the rest, and you will find yourself seeking out only the HD content.
Face it John, time to lose the VCR... there's no going back once you start down this path.

Wink RG 6

RG6 cable is the correct one. Also, find one with the widest bandwith possible. The new dishes now sending signals both ways.

Under no circumstances use RG59.

As noted RG6 is the right stuff, problem is there at least 2 or 3 variations of it. Get the highest quaility you can find, sometimes it's refered to as quad-shielded.
