    Hi all,

    I'm quite new to this and wondered if you guys can help - I've had a look through old threads and can't seem to find the answer to my question so here goes:

    I'm moving into a new flat pretty soon and have bought an lcd, a 5.1 kit, dvd and sky box and am going to try and hide the wires inside the plasterboard walls. I quite happy destroying my walls and have a pretty good idea of how I will feed the wires through and then fill the holes but am unsure as to how to go about installing wallpates. I know I need a special plasterboard box and the suitable plate but what kind of wire would I use for SCART for example. I was initially planning on just running a 5-10 meter scart from the TV to where the boxes will be and have the wire sticking out of the wall but this wont look great. I have found a plate at http://www.nexxia.co.uk/Hi-Fi&TVaccessories/WallMountedConnectors/scart_wall_mounts.htm but how do i connect to this so that all I need is the shortest possible SCART running fom my sky/dvd boxes to the wall sockets?

    Any help will be much appreciated - sorry if its a bit long winded!
