  • Q: What is meant by "in wall" for the HDMI cable?  (5 Answers)

    By in55 

    • Best answerIt is used for home theaters and through or "IN WALL" installations of cabling systems for tv's and entertainment devices. If you wire free air (inside the room) then a regular HDMI cable will work. For all inside wall routes you should consult the electrical code to determine the correct classification.The major difference is the size of the wires and the condition of the insulation (flame resistant etc). If your house is burning down because the flames started in a cable raceway and you used the wrong cable in accordance to code then the insurance will fight the claim and you get nothing.

    • Best answerThe surge protector should indicate BOTH Grounded AND Protected when plugged in. Protected means that the surge protector is protecting your equipment. Grounded means that your equipment is properly grounded (which should be required to adequately protect your equipment).

    • Best answerI assume your surge protector is not defective. The manufacturer should have tested it before shipping. You could confirm by taking it to another location (perhaps another building) and plugging it in. Ground light should be illuminated when the power switch in ON. If the surge protector appears okay then the electrical outlet you have must not be properly grounded. Depending on the appliance you have connected (such as a computer) that should still furnish some surge protection. The national electrical code, which may be modified in your locality, allows a GFI (ground fault interrupt outlet) to be installed; in the absence of a third wire (ground) coming into outlet box. That will trip in case the neutral wire is broken to protect a person. But it will not protect attached equipment such as your appliances, electronics etc. You will note that power cubes, and some television sets, are frequently two prong (no ground) so they shouldn’t be affected by lack of an earth ground. It would be best to have a licensed electrician check your electrical service. But if you don’t own the property I would think it is pretty safe to protect your attached equipment. If it is a three-prong receptacle in the outlet box I would at least replace it with a GFI outlet; to protect you. And to make sure someone did not wire it incorrectly by installing a plain three-prong outlet (three incoming wires) in a two-wire electrical box. I hope this helps. Also, I am not a licensed electrician but I have two rocket fish surge protectors myself. One is grounded and the other is not. The one that is not grounded is connected to a GFI outlet (and has multiple electronic cords/cubes plugged into it), none of which are three wire. Regards.
