So I just bought a new home and in the new home, things are set up for an old tube style 32 inch TV. Here's a pic... I've started making some changes... To prepare for the new set up.... I have the new TV already, it's a Panasonic TC-P65GT30 - LINK It's going through this receiver - Link and a panosonic 3D DVD player that I don't immediately have the model number for. So now I'm putting this together correctly. I still have the wall torn apart and it will be recovered to look sort of like this photoshop (except speakers will be replaced) I'm planning ahead as I don't plan on making changes to this again any time in the next decade or two. I have some questions... What connections should I have in the wall? Obviously HDMI (is two of them enough?) and Ethernet (should I add two or is one sufficient?) should I add any others? HDMI Cables... I haven't seen a single non-sales review that says it's worth spending hundreds on cables. Buy the Monoprice cables, right? For these connections, should I do wall plates i.e. like this link? I'm concerneed that each point of plugging a cable in is another chance for signal to break. Should I just run the cables up to the wall and leave them hanging through a conduit? It'll be behind the TV so it wouldn't be seen. Wall plates would make for a much nicer looking, but in either case, it's out of sight, out of mind. What are your thoughts please? Now's the time I can wire in some speakers. Where should they be placed? How many? I'm planning on doing built in speakers again but I'm not COMPLETELY committed to that. The receiver has 7.1 capability. The home is already wired for 5.1. I'm not planning on changing anything about the rear speakers. Should the center channel speaker be below the monitor for best effect? Is it worth while to add a lower set of front and a higher set of front speakers? Would you please point me to some decent mid-priced speakers? I only have the front wall torn apart so wiring in side speakers isn't what I had in mind, but I'm not completely against that either. The layout of the room esn't exactly condusive for side positioned speakers. I'm sure I'm forgetting something, but these are my first questions. Sorry to have so many questions in one place. Thanks so much in advance!!
