How do you plan to get the power cable from the projector to the wall? will it just gone straight down in the back of the room or are you talking about running the cable along a soffit or something? While not ideal, a standard extension cord should do. You can also put a surge protector at the end of the cord to help reduce risks.
Well I had planned on running it behind ceiling where there is a beam that runs the length of my ceiling in the direction I want. My projector is mounted right near this beam.
So I planned to cut a hole in the wall that is around the beam, then run it behind the wall next to the beam, into a wall on the side of the room then out the wall.
Is all that feasable by simply getting an extension cable and running it inside of the ceiling and out of the wall, or is that a bad idea?
It will eventually be plugged into a surge protector before going to the actual wall outlet.
