David Coleman, director of CE for Honeywell International, shared his knowledge about HDMI installation and testing CE Pro. I found his recommendations very interesting. Especially a basic HDTV pre-wire. He recommended one HDMI cable, one component video cable and three Cat 5 wires run in a 2-inch pipe. That configuration will allow enough flexibility to ensure you have your bases covered.
