I have a friend who is building a new house and wants to connect his PC to his 54" LCD that is on the wall across the room. The house is still under construction and the walls are open with no Sheetrock. He wants to know what kind of wire he should run to make it work. He wants sound to work too. I thought about running a HDMI cable, but don't know if that is the best way. What do you guys recommend? This is a 3 million dollar home, and he doesn't want it to look cobbled up with wires hanging out of the wall.

I haven't looked at new cabling combinations in awhile
Off the top of my head with a quick answer,
I would run conduit so if the need arises, it's easy to pull new cable. You can even leave a pull string in the conduit for when it's needed
There are various covers for whatever combination he goes with

Not a complete answer, nevertheless I suggest sticking to an HDMI connection for the best results.

Also make sure he has a good video card (with HDMI out) to power the 54" LCD display.
