Hi.  We want to run a cable from one room to another through our unfinished basement.  We have measured and think we have found the spot where we need to drill up into the wall.  But when I drill a little ways (an inch or so), I keep hitting something that sounds and feels like metal.  What could it be?  I have tried moving the location a little to the left or right, but I get the same problem.

Thanks for any advice!
