A friend is building a dedicated home theater and audio room (Very nice equipment-Paradigm Signature and Sub Two).
Anyway he is NOT a techie and does not want all of the bells and whistles of a completely wired home. Very basic but at least so he doesn't have to re-wire or add anything in the future, at least he hopes. He is having the walls spray foamed so this will be an issue even with that.
He was thinking he may go ahead and add a wire for a ceiling projector and wire up the speaker runs for 7.1. The equipment is going to be located in a dedicated closet.
Should he use HDMI for the projector and also run CAT 5/6 for it also for future, just in case? I've read that CAT 5/6 can be converted over to basically any type of cabling with a converter box?
