It might seem a little frustrating for whose who have invested hundreds of dollars in HDMI and other cabling but it looks like you will need to find another use for the random A/V wires around the house. It looks like several major manufacturers will be switching to CAT5e/6 as a standard for A/V cabling. This offers some serious benefits, for instance RJ-45 ends tend to be significantly more robust that s-video. As well the distance you are able to send a signal, in this case 328′ is much longer than most other existing cabling can manage.
