    Here is what I plan on running in-wall in each of 2 rooms. I am looking for as clean a finish as possible and also want to run what I can now while one wall is open.

    1:

    I have:
    Panasonic 50" Plasma (60U)

    I am hanging this above my fireplace. Just ripped the sheetrock down. Re-framing it and running all of my wires into a closet on the left of the fireplace. I need to run my wiring from the closet to the wall.

    Plans:
    Fireplace wall:
    1 Panamax single outlet surge protector
    1 panamax add-on with 5 coax connections (RGBYW)
    1 (dual) HDMI Wall Plate
    1 (dual) RJ6 wall plate

    Questions:
    Do I need to run a digital audio wire since all my components will be in the closet?
    Am I missing anything?
    I plan on using the RGBYW as component and the YW as left/right 2 channel audio. Possible?
    Can anyone point me to somewhere to buy wall plates? I have found a few but am open to suggestions.



    Room 2 (Kitchen)

    I have:
    26" LCD with multiple connections (hdmi, DVI, etc)
    Dell Computer in a kitchen cabinet below

    I will use the LCD as both a computer and TV. I may cable card the TV so I would go direct with an RJ6 cable.

    I will also use the LCD as a computer monitor. I can go DVI->HDMI for video and RCA for audio. Am I missing something for audio? Anything extra I should run?

    I purchased all of my wall plates at Home Depot. They have them in a variety of styles.
