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!
