Sorry for resurrecting this thread but I am also installing my 1st home projector (3D) in a few months but am pre-wiring it now since I am doing a room remodel. I am wondering if I need to run a dedicated ethernet wire to the PJ.
I can see the need to 'maybe' wire it for firmware but how often do they require FW updates? Other than ethernet, how else would one update the firmware on a projector if not by ethernet? Do most PJ's come with USB ports too (for a thumbdrive update)?
Also, do most PJs have widgets like TVs now for streaming? If so, perhaps it would make sense.
