You have it figured out already and are correct.

Everything to the 2807 - then fromt here to the projector via a single HDMI run.

If you are running all your cabling IN WALL then add component, composite, vga, and a piece of CAT-5... that is, if access is difficult.

For speakers, run 14 gauge (minimum) to all speakers, and RG-6 cabling to the subwoofer.

Yes -- as the Denon 2807ci can switch between all its inputs to HDMI, just connect all your equipment to receiver and then HDMI to projector. I ran components as well as HDMI to my projector since it is not HDMI 1.3 but I only use the HDMI input on my projector.

I'm about to get going on my own setup, after having read lots of excellent postings. I have been told to purchse to pieces of equipment which I'm not familiar with; a power conditioner (H15 APC), and a "scaler". Can someone explain to me the purpose of these components? I am thinking of the JVC RS2 for a projector, Vutec Silverstar 110" for screen, the Denon 3808 for receiver, and JBL L series for speakers. Basically, won't the Denon take care of the "scaler" suggestion, as well as power conditioner? Also, can someone suggest to me how much subwoofer to have in a 14' x 22' room with 11' ceiling, no windows? JBL has a 600 W powered subwoofer. Is one sufficient? two have been suggested to me. I am completely ignorant, and would welcome any and all suggestions/advice. Thank you.

Nice choice of the JVC RS2! You are right as the Denon should take care of scaling all inputs to 1080p to its HDMI output. Most receivers only have one or two power connection for another component, and No -- it won't take care of the power conditioner.

I do have a Monster Power line conditioner and I thought it did make an improvement on sound when I plug my components into it.

Thank you. Any suggestions on the subwoofer? 600 W enough for the room? If I get two as suggested, will they both fire if placed in series? Thanks again.
