I am really trying to clean up, simplify, and relocate my cable,internet,telephone connection through Time Warner. Currently ALL these things are connected in my living room behind my TV and DVR box setup.

Ultimately I'd like to move all my TW connections upstairs to a den so I can have a simplified setup downstairs in the living area. (just TV and DVR box).

Downstairs is the only place that I have a phone and cable outlet next to each other in the house. That being the case, isn't it impossible to move these items since both the cable and phone lines are connected to a single box provided by TW?

Wow, that was confusing to type up!

With enough wire and enough time to fish the wires through walls and floors to get them to where they need to go, no wiring job is impossible! If you're at a loss where to begin such a project, a home theater installer could advise you on the feasibility of consolidating so much wiring and give you an estimate on doing the work.

If you know exactly which wires you want to move where, you could hire an electrician to do the work.

Tell us which stage you're at and members can provide recommendations.

Hubby's BFF works for Time Warner and pre wired our home because we wanted specific things RJ-45 cables from one bedroom to another, PC to TV connections, etc. We paid him a twenty or two for his time and feed him pizza (nothing like feeding your worker bee to be at their productive best!)
If you'd like, you can exchange emails and see if he can help you.

I think for telephone, if your modem is plugged into one phone jack, then all of the phones that are plugged into subsequent phone jacks will function properly.

Newk, you are correct, however, my understanding is that the cable has to be plugged into that same modem...therefore I need another location where the phone and cable jacks sit next to each other

Yeah, my modem and wireless router are near my PC, which is also adjacent to a telephone jack. There is no reason your modem should be near your TV.
