Right, so again, you're using ONLY the center pair... with Cat3 you would still normally use the blue.

First off, if it's not too late.... I would simply wire everything with Cat5e or Cat6. That way, not only do you only need one type of cable, but then every jack becomes interchangeable between...

Sounds more like the "switch box" is also a video modulator, if it connects to the TV with a single coax cable... which means even if you do input HD component video to it, it's probably not...

You've got a lot of yard to cover there... problem with these cameras is that they have 4mm lenses, which is not going to give you the most efficient coverage: 4mm on a 1/3" sensor will provide only...

Problem with lowering voltage into the motor is that you're also reducing its output strength - drop the voltage too low, and it won't spin up under any kind of load, or at all.

There's no way you'll be able to use the laptop's display for the Pi - the driver is integrated into the laptop; it has no input ports. You'd need a small display with HDMI input.
