So I am wiring my theatre room and would prefer not to do this again... major headache! I plan on purchasing a 3d projector and will use my ps3, computer, (and next gen of consoles?) for 3d gaming and videos.

I already have a 1.3 hdmi cable, do I need to buy a 1.4 hdmi cable to run from projector to wall. then into the wall will be a splitter, again, do I need a specific 1.4 splitter for my 3d devices?:

Projector----HDMI----Wall Plate----SPLITTER---(computer, ps3, xbox720, cable box, etc.)

As long as the cable is High Speed HDMI cable, you'll be fine.

As of the HDMI 1.4 specification, these are the following cable types defined for HDMI in general:
Standard HDMI Cable - up to 1080i and 720p (I could play 1080P fine with short Standard HDMI Cable)
Standard HDMI Cable with Ethernet

High Speed HDMI Cable - 1080p, 4K, 3D and deep color
High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet

Sorry, no. *NO* 1-meter HDMI cable is worth a hundred bucks... That's ~20x the lowest price ones, which will work just as well. Anything above $10-15 is a ripoff. You get to 15'+, then we can talk about something more expensive, but still <$100.
