    I'm renovating my apartment and want to build a HT with a plasma screen and have the cabling hiden within conduits in the wall.

    1) Big question is what kind of cable should I use to connect the screen with the source?

    As I have to pull the cable through a 3/4" conduit, a SCART won't fit. And if I get a plasma TV with its own tuner, that means a proprietary cable that won't fit either.

    2) If I'm going to use the TV's own speakers when watching TV, I presume that I'll need to pull a L and R audio channel through the wall too. Correct?

    3) Am I correct in thinking that all audio and video sources go into a receiver (yet to buy) and then there's just a single video connection to the TV, a stereo audio connection to TV, and a digital audio connection to my stereo?

    thanks

    Geoff

    Geoff what plasma TV are you buying. Some models lack speakers in them..actually most do. Something to consider. Mike

    haven't totally decided which plasma TV yet, but I think I'll probably get a LG MT-24PZ12, as it's more affordable than most, and is being sold with speakers included.

    Oh cool....I'm really surprised this thread has not been moved to the DIY page. You might have better luck in there. Mike
