I would like to add a home theater to my house as well as computer network wiring and audio wiring.
I don't trust wireless and it doesn't work very well for home theater or audio.
I don't have a basement or crawlspace and I don't want the ugly surface-mount stuff. Is WireTracks the way to go?
The wiretracks look interesting, but it is expensive, and of course, base is not continuous at doors and stairs. Can you access the attic? The easiest way is to route through the wall into the attic and drop wiring where ever you need it. I have wired in cable, phone and ethernet this way.
I don't have an attic, but it seems to me that once this installed, reaccess is a lot easier.
Here are a couple of articles about some ways that wiring can be added to existing structures
