    I'm sure some of you have seen the cat 5 to coax video baluns that let
    you run composite video over one of the 4 twisted pairs in a cat 5
    cable. I have also seen the same thing for audio. But what I want is
    one that will do audio video and power all over the cat 5 cable. I was
    wondering, is this more than hooking wires to connectors? If that is
    all there is to it I can make my own easy. If there is more to it, is
    it all the complex that I still couldn't make them myself?

    Only to the extent of inserting the baluns where they belong.
    It's not complexity - Cat 5 cable is AWG 24, so you have to look
    carefully at the load current on the power pair.

    Good Luck!
