OK, so I think I know the answer to this, but want to ask those with more experience. Is it "sorta bad" or "REALLY BAD" to be running a projector power cord and the video signal cables (S-Vid & Component, for now) right next to each other? I know its one of those "things to be avoided if possible", but I don't think its easily done here... Background: We have a new "old-construction" home. Eventually, (in many years) I may have a dedicated HT space by converting a large outbuilding, but for now I'm doing the "Family Room" HT like many people. Lived for a couple of years at our old place with the projector on a stand and a "pop-up" DaLite screen as a "temporary" solution. The problem is that setting things up was just enough of a hassle that we never took down the screen or projector unless we had serious company comping over. (Screen collapsed when we watched the tube tv behind it...) So if we're going to use our projector again in the new house, its going to have to be a "cleaner" installation. I'm planning to build a "box" for an electric screen inside a soffit and then run crown-moulding along the perimeter of the room to dress it up. I'll probably also run the speaker wires for the surrounds most of the way behind the moulding and then between the joists to the final destination. The problem is the projector wiring: The joists run perpendicular to the projector->screen axis. This is the ground-floor of a two-story house, so any wiring has to stay "below" the second floor. Like I said, I think I can get away with speaker wires behind the moulding, but I don't think there's enough room there for the additional wires, so I'm probably going to have to use that "wire channel" stuff for the wires from the front wall to the projector. This is already a tough sell with the wife, as even painted it will be visible. Running TWO of these (one for signal, one for power) is basically a non-starter, and there isn't a convenient power location anywhere around there, so it looks like the wires would have to go together in one channel... How bad? Any alternate suggestions? For reference, my current PJ is an Epson Home 10+ (short throw, 480p & component/s-vid only). I know I'll upgrade eventually, but maybe by then I'll have begun converting my other space. In either case, I don't see getting HDMI cables in with the other mess of cables too... Thanks.
