    I'm about to button up my ceiling projector area. I have run the following:

    5 coax
    2 cat 5
    1 svideo
    1 15 pin computer cable

    Anything else to future proof myself.

    Is it too obvious to say Power?

    How long are these cable runs to your rack? If it's a fairly long run, if you're running a relatively thin SVideo cable, you may be better off running 2 coax cables instead and using breakout connectors at each end.

    What about DVI?

    Yes - I have run power. The cable runs are about 15 feet. What is DVI?
