    I have just moved from a 28" crt too a lovely new 42" panasonic plasma and blue ray player , i also have bt vision a router and a telephone all on my lovely new black glass stand.

    Problem is look beyond the stand and it looks like an explosion in a spaghetti factory!! Ive got hdmi cables , networking cables , power cables , optical cable for my soundbar and it looks bloody shocking ha ha.

    Theres some handy clips on the stand for cabling but they were soon filled up.

    I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction for some cheapish cable management items , ive seen some plastic spiral type stuff for bunching the cables together but its bloody pricey considering what it is.

    heres what im up aginst..

    If you think that is bad you should see behind my hi-fi stack!

    I got a pack of velcro strips which will wrap around several wires from Tesco for a pound - though probably available elsewhere. Combined with some electrical tape this would solve your problem very cheaply.
