    Hi,
    I just recently replaced my 32" with a 46" Hitachi Rear CRT. Thus my stand that holds all my gear will be moving with the old tv. I will need to move all my stuff ( dvd player , pvr unit , satellite receiver , receiver etc ..) into some built in shelves that are beside the tv. However , the shelves aren't pre-wired so I need some way of doing the following:

    1. Running my video to the new tv
    2. Running a power bar into the new shelves so I can plug all my stuff in
    3. Hiding all the wires connecting dvd to receiver etc ... as much as possible. ( this ones easy because I can just buy some of the wire duct they make to hide them ) .

    The shelves are on the left side of the tv so I suppose I can either do the following:

    1. Run the wires down a corner to the rug and then underneath the run or the wall. I could then use the wire duct to hide the wires. However , to do this I would need to run an extension cord into the shelves and then hook a powerbar into this. ( I don't know how good that is )

    OR

    2. Make a hole in the side of the shelves ( beside the tv ) and get some type of outlet cover and run the needed wires through that.

    Has any one done a similar thing and what did you do ?

    Thanks
    Jason
