    hi my tv is about 3mts from the amp, where would be the best place to get some sort of flexable tubing to go over the linking cable and various speaker cables to tidy them up a bit, thanks for your help.

    Ikea do some black or white tubes that work quite well if you use extra cable ties with them. They are REALLY cheap!

    I have:-
    1 Scart
    5 Silver Anniv. Speaker Wire
    1 Aerial Lead
    1 S-Video lead

    I need to take it all apart to add:-

    1 Ixos 109 Sub Cable
    1 Pair Phonos for Digibox

    All in the same tube, but it's already a bit packed in there!

    Alternatively Maplins do various dimesions of cable wrap.

    I have lots of red/blue/yellow/translucent cabling, so I just tie the main runs together with multi coloured cable ties. They're never going to be 100% tidy (too much stuff plugged in) so I don't worry about it and just keep the lights turned off.

    I bought white conduit from B&Q - it comes in various thickness to accomadate suit single or multiple cables.

    There is a version that has that sticky stuff on the back of it, so fixing it just above your skirting board is easy and you would never notice it.

    It is also paintable so you can match it in with your deco.

    It comes in straight lengths, but you can buy matching mitred corner joints, or indeed if you have a mitre, cut the ends yourself.
