The first sticky thread at the top of this section is called "What I'd do differently next time". Probably a lot of good material in there...

Run all the power outlets in your room: in-floor powered speaker outlets, walloutlets, projector outlet, etc. to a single wall inside your media closet and terminate them there. This way you can plug all that into power conditioner in your media closet. Voila no ground loops.

And when the inspector tests the outlets, Voila, no occupancy permit. I do that for the projector, but ALL the outlets? just make sure they are dedicated to theater in the main breaker box, and not branching off to other rooms.

You might need to be there to plug them in and prove they work lol. Or wall plate them in the closet after inspection!
