Worth chasing another HDMI cable into the wall?
A friend of mine is having building work done in her living room. She's going to have a TV up on the wall above the fireplace and her Sky box and DVD player on a unit to the side. She's going to have cables chased into the wall:-
- HDMI for Sky signal
- SCART for DVD input
- coaxial to TV (for when Sky goes down, so she can still watch Freeview)
She's seen some new DVD players coming out that have no SCART connectivity and is wondering whether it's worth having a second HDMI cable run as well, before the plasterer comes, to be able to connect such a DVD box in case that's all that's available in the future, when her current DVD box eventually dies. Does this seem like a wise move? Is SCART on its way out, with HDMI the successor?
Thanks for all advice.
