    Hello
    I am roughing in a home theatre room. I can not afford my project yet, but i want to rough in the wiring since i have the walls open.
    I was just going to supply AC and RGB cables to the projector. The someone told me i should put DVI up to the projector.

    What do you guys suggest?

    Thanks
    Randy

    I would run HDMI and RGB. DVI has "evolved" into HDMI. HDMI is designed for longer runs, and is easier to pull because the ends aren't quite as wide. If the projector you select has only DVI, you can get an inexpensive adapter to convert from HDMI to DVI.
