    I am currently in the process of finishing my basement. A lot of time has gone into pre-wiring for a future 7.1 HT system.

    I have run what my wife thinks is a rediculous # of wires from the HT location throughout the room, but I did not run a tele line. A friend recently told me that in the future it is likely that a tele connection will be very useful at that location. He did not have specifics, however.

    I know that some people use their console games over the internet. That is cool, but I am happy using my PC for internet gaming.

    Do any of you have an opinion regarding the importants of running tele to a HT system's location?

    thanks

    Often Sat/DSS systems want a telephone line to allow you to order Pay Per View movies/events. The box tracks the orders and the box then uses the telephone line to tell the service what you ordered. I believe many cable box's do the same.

    I dont know if HD Sat service needs this, but it's a good chance.
