A couple weeks ago I posted (link below) my first home theater setup, I now have all the components and I am starting to set it up.
I have a drop ceiling and plan on just running my in-wall speaker wire and in-wall hdmi through the ceiling, but I know I can't do that with power. I know the right way to get power is by installing a permanent outlet near the projector, but I would like to avoid that . I have an outlet right below the projector about 10 feet away and I was wondering if it is considered okay to just run an extension cord inside a raceway attached to the wall. I don' t see how an extension cord would be any less safe then running the normal power cord inside a raceway but it won't entirely reach. If i wrapped the power cord around the mount and brought the extension cord all the way to the projector would that be up to code as long as I actually do run behind the wall ever and its inside of a raceway? If not do you have any other suggestions. I thought about this, (see link below) but its only 54 inches and won't be long enough.
I attached a picture, the red line is the hdmi cord not power, The blackbox will be cut out and the projector will be set back into that dropped down area of the ceiling
