There you have it, obviously Casey has a plan in his head of what he wants, but getting there is tricky. If you've thought about handing the job over to a custom installer let us know in the comments what pushed you to eventually do it, or dig in and get the job done yourself."I finally have the house, the rooms and the resources to get the theater room I've been dreaming about with everything separated in its own closet, HTPC, in-wall speakers, tie-ins to home automation and maybe some multiroom streaming if I get around to it. After over a year of "work" all there is to show for it is some shelving in the closet, HDMI and power cables run to nowhere, my old stereo still in place and the Xbox 360, satellite receiver and Blu-ray player in a heap underneath the TV. My wife would like to have the room back at some point and is suggesting we just call someone and have them set it up since I don't have the time. I'm still not sure it won't cost too much to bring in a pro and let them
have all the fundo all the work, plus I want the satisfaction of doing it myself but I'm running out of time. What should I do, and where can I look for a good installer that won't rip me off at $1,000 per cable?"
