Re: New Build structured wiring

Why cat 5e and not cat 6? The price difference is negligible at this point. A little less flexibility in running it but since it is new construction it shouldn't matter.

If you are going to wall mount a flat panel I would consider having HDMI installed so you can plug in from your AV receiver/cable box/blue-ray/game console right behind the television as well as having an electrical outlet. Unless you don't mind all those cables running down the wall.

Actually a better idea is to run an open 2" conduit from behind where the flat panel will be mounted into a nearby cabinet or even to a low space on the wall. That way you will be prepared for any future technologies by just pulling it through the conduit.
