(My two cents...) I'd run two HDMI cables.

You will need a power outlet and an HDMI. I would not run a second one, but make sure you leave enough room so you can feed, string a new cable through as the cables change... we all know they will!

besides power and hdmi to the receiver.. i dont think you need anything else unless you want to run the speaker wire too. your other components can connect to the receiver directly
