Hello all, first timer here and big newb! Sorry cant post links until I have 15 posts I'm finishing my basement and putting a poor man's HT in. I'm running cable (coax, speaker, data, voice, elec.) thru the stud walls now, running them back to a central distribution point (which will be enclosed with drywall & access door) www basherdesigns com/ht/distro-panel.jpg 1. I need advice on a Video splitter and I'm not sure if I will need any kind of amplification on the runs. Heres a diagram of how I need to split the DirecTv signal. www basherdesigns com/ht/dtv-splitr.jpg 2. WAF is not allowing me to purchase new speakers at this time so I have to mount what I have, front and rear speakers look like this. www basherdesigns com/ht/sur-speaker.jpg Cheesy but do the job. Anyone know of a mount that will work with this speaker or ideas on mounting them. 3. LAST question. Whats the best way to connect your computer soundcard audio output to your receiver? The run is about 40', can you get RCA cable that long with out losing quality. I could go from 1/4" jack to RCAs, but I'm not sure if thats the way to do it. Thanks you very much for helping the poor man out too, we appreciate it!
