Need help connecting all these wires

Trying to rewire and clean up the wiring in the AV center where the satellite and cable come in. Is there a schematic or picture of how or in what order you hook up the following: 1.Video switching center 2.KVH satellite interface box 3.Dish interface box 4.Front & rear TV 5.Cable, sat and antenna coming in?
Looks like a birds nest in there right now.
Thank you.

What is the make and model of your rig? Easiest way is to just get in there and coil and ty-wrap cables to shorten them.

donnyjay, on my rig I was able to pull the switch box out and the back is labled as to what connector does what. As I removed the coax cables I marked them as to what they were. After that I was able to pull everything out. I was lucky the surround sound speaker wires were about 6 ft long. So I did not have to disconnect them. Once I got everything out I cut off the factory coax connectors and installed the new style connectors I got at home depot. The coax stripper and connector installing tool cost me 35 bucks, but now I have it for ever. Anyway I used the back of the switch box as a reference and used zip strips (tie wraps) and have each cable end tailing out of the "Harness" where it connects to the box. I have about 3 feet of cable harness that will allow me to pull the whole thing out if need be. I also added a 6 point receptical adapter with surge protection into the org two plg receptical. I made a harness of the 110 wires the same as with the coax cable. The speaker wires are real small, I just bundled them up with a tie wrap after I put everything back together. Also my HDMI cables for the sat receiver and Blu-ray are tie wraped and run up the other side of the cabinet. What did I occomplissh by doing all this. I now have high quailty connectors, tight connections at the box (they should be snugged to insure a good singnal), a cleaned up "birds nest", a much better understanding of the systems, and know what I have to do to replace anything.
I only have sat and blu-ray on the front tv becauses of HDMI, I do still have cable, ant, and dvd to the main and other tvs through the switcch box. After doing all this I then went to the other end of all the coax cable and put new ends on them. Much better quailty of singnal now. Just what I did to improve everything. Hope you can use the info on your rig.
