Hello all I am wiring my basement HT right now, and have the luxury at this point of adding any "future" runs of wire/cable that I can see fit to add. I have little intention of ever buying a front projector, but who knows, that opinion might change. So, my room is 24 by 14, and if I were to hang the FP, I'd do it in front of a heating duct which is about half way, roughly 12 feet from the screen. Is this enough distance? I know nothing about FP, so would it work? Can FP's be focused for various distances from the screen? On a related but slightly expanded theme, I am also trying to predict what cable runs I will need for virtually everything else, so if you have any ideas, such as satellite cable (right now I use cable TV) please let me hear your opinion. With satellite for example, I plan to add an empty PVC conduit in my wall, so that I can pull the satellite cable through wto my AVR stack, without having to chop into the wall. I intend to plan for 7.1, plus a few different possible locations of the subwoofer, or multiple subwoofers. I hope to use my head, and NOT have to open up my drywall ceiling in the future. That's why I'nm going through this process now. Again, any future thoughts? Thanks everyone. Tom.
