I have three holes in my theater room under construction... and would like to reduce it to two... or even one. Unfortunately, the guy who did the work is jail for a DUI and cannot be reached. So, here's the situation as reflected in the photo below. The hole with the two electrical wires is for a light fixture... I'm okay with the that... and it's actually a fourth hole. The hole with one electrical wire is for the power to the projector. The rectangular box has CAT 6 cable in it. The round hole is for HDMI and future proofing. I'm told the yelow electrical wire can't come out of the same box as the CAT 6 cable. I also don't understand why the HDMI cable can't come out of the same box as the CAT 6. The painters are coming on Monday and I could sure use some help. Thanks!

ALL my wires come down the down rod of my Chief Mount. There is a way to do it code legal and then there are shortcuts. Code legal would involve a hidden recess in the ceiling with an outlet side by side with the LV box. You cover that recess with a REMOVABLE plywood hatch that the projector mount is attached to and bring all the wires down the tube.
