I need some help with the following setup:
Floor Plan.pdf 452k .pdf file
I've attached a layout of my floor plan to add context.
I'm planning on putting a Panny AR100u in my family room (19x15). I will have a PS3 and cable box hooked up to my receiver via HDMI, but getting HDMI to the projector from the receiver is going to be a problem. The receiver will be on the wall next to the back porch, while the projector will be on the wall next to the master suite. I have tile floors, so going underneath the floor is not an option. I can't run a cable along the perimeter of the room because there is a fireplace in the way. I really only have 2 options that I can see:
1) Ceiling height is 19'. I would need a really long HDMI cable that runs from the receiver up the wall through the ceiling and down another wall to the projector.
2) Use wireless HDMI from the receiver to the projector.
I don't have any experience with running long HDMI cables or wireless HDMI. I'm worried that either option with reduce the quality of audio and video.
Which option will work best? Do I have any other options to make this setup work?
I could also move the projector to the game room (14x18, 9' ceilings) upstairs, but prefer to try and make the family room work.
