Have you looked at Altex in Carrollton? www.altex.com or somewhere like Star Power or something a little higher end that does a lot of installations?

You might try Fry's: http://shop2.outpost.com/product/489...H:MAIN_RSLT_PG

Call them with that model number. The Irving Fry's number is: 214-242-4900, ask for media.

Edit - here's what Altex's website is showing:

Though, that wall repeater at Altex doesn't seem bad, if that fits in your system some how. I'm sure the Fry's one will have much more of a universal functionality though.

Yeah. That wall plate looks inviting. Just not sure how I'll make it work.

I don't know why I didn't think about a repeater when I was planning all of this. 100ft lenth of HDMI cable, guess I'm probably going to need it

Have you tried verifying picture yet? I'd guess you probably need something, but maybe not.

No, not yet. But it's going to loose some amount of quality over that long of a run. So, I'm going to need it. Might as well get it now, to avoid any frustrations when I get everything hooked up.


Nothing worse than spending 3 days getting a project like this finished up, only to need another part like this because of a crappy picture

How big is the TV? I know how it goes..or you could have all that stuff and just not feel like doing the fancy wiring and etc...that's pretty much where I'm at. I guess it's okay since I'll be moving this year. Good luck with it dude, you're overpaying by quite a bit buying locally, but when you need it, you need it...

TV is a 42 inch plasma. But it will be upgraded next year with a projector.

Thanks for your help!

Nick
