    I'm currently building a HT room and in the future I want a ceiling mounted projector,probably in one year time. Something equivalent to AE700 now, then. My question is what would you guys run for the cable in the ceiling before I drywall?I have the 1014 receiver. Component? I'm a little behind the times in the HT right now and would hate not to take advantage of the best hookup. Thanks alot

    Rick, you need component, possibly S-video, and the new projectors may have HDMI instead of DVI. How do you plan to terminate wires? Are you going to leave them hang out from drywall ceiling? You should run as large a conduit as possible to accomodate the cables, then you can add or change things down the road. Like a 2-3" PVC pipe.

    Conduit is a very good idea. This will allow you to fish whatever you want through there and you don't have to worry about doing it now.
