did you plan you wire runs to accomodate the side inputs on the Sony? you wires look snug, but nice and clean. any issues with turning and twisting the HDMI?
i was going to run the outlet for the PJ to 12" behind the Pearl then loop around to the side. this way if i ever upgrade i am some wiggle room. it will not be a clean as your look though, which i like.
i could place the outlet to the side of the Pearl and run the wires over the top of the unit in the joist cavity. ??
Thanks for the kind words.
I planned the placement of the wiring outlet to land right underneath the Chief mount, so could route the wires thru the mount plate/bracket. I then just made sure to order my cables with enough slack to route around the side for the projector.
I actually put a second leg of the wiring box and another "buried" adjustable electrical box a few feet farther back for future mounting flexibility: LINK HERE.
The HDMI cable was the toughest one to deal with. I got about as tight of a radius I could without putting too much strain on the connector. I wish I could have found long cables with 45-degree connector ends on them...
I'm not sure what you mean by the side outlet placement question? Are you speaking of an electrical outlet? Or the "endpoint" of your signal wire conduit?
If you are referring to the latter, then certainly.. my conduit ends ~12" above the whole in the framed backing where the mount is attached. There's room in that void can be used to coil extra wire, allow for misalignment of the conduit and your hole, etc...
