I think we had about 5 pounds of wires and cables that we cut off! EVERYTHING was run on the outside, and when it was replaced it was left and new stuff was run. We had the wires/cables from the antenna, cable and dish. We had speaker wire (???) and phone lines. We had some cable that ran the cable from the box to other rooms. ALL on the outside. We have to fill those holes, thanks for the reminder! We also plan to paint, but we cut them all off just because it looked so trashy. We have no land line so no need for phone wires, and cable/internet all comes via one underground wire that comes out of the ground, runs up the side about 1' and goes inside now. LAZY LAZY LAZY! When they ran the wires for the dish and cable at our Old House we were home and didn't let them take the lazy way out, it came down, went under, then up and in. NOT along the outside on our siding!
