I'll keep it short and to the point.

*Having a home built in PA via Ryan Homes.

*Have 18' x 13 room left unfinished for future Media Room.

*Have (1) dedicated circuit in that room for Projection TV.

Question #1. Does this or should the projection TV be on a dedicated or daisy-chain?

I sketched to have (2) additional 110V's installed but it translated to (2) additional outlets on a daisy chain to Ryan Homes. That's no good for me.

*I want to install 110V for Audio Equipment. That circuit is installed already.

*I want (1) more circuit for Sconce Lighting (8)bulbs at 60Watts ea.

*I want (1)more circuit for Track-Lighting or Recessed Lighting with (8) bulbs at 75W ea.

Question #2 & 3. Should i need (3) dedicated circuits for Proj TV, Sconce Lights and Track Lights?

Question #4. Or could i combine the Proj TV with one of the lighting circuits?

with additional notes. I hope it comes through clear enough.

You might need a dedicated circuit for the popcorn machine.

You need to look at the specs on the equipment. But if these are 20 amp circuits that gives you 2,400 watts available.

Now the scones maybe 4, 60 watt units?

That leaves over 2000 watts.

I have no idea what the projector requires or the audio.

But I would not be surprised if all 3 won't work on one circuit.

I see that you did specify the number of lights. Those total to 1080 watts.

Still leaves you with almost 1200 watts for the projector.

Your drawing is unreadable.

By far, the cheapest alternative is to have them run a pathway (conduit, raceway, etc.) from the breaker box into that room, and leave it empty at this point.

That way, when you go to finish that media room in the future, an electrician can easily run as many circuits as needed into the room. Very flexible, but you have kept your present cost as low as possible.

I would want one for low level stuff.

In a few years you might be running fiber option or something else to replace the cable.
