    So i've got the plasma - now I need to hide all the horrible cables.....
    Help!!
    What do you suggest, where is the best place to get stuff from? I guess I need some trunking, but would like something a bit nicer than the bland white plastic stuff you normally find in B and Q or homebase.

    Any ideas?

    This is what i've got so far.........

    I take it you don't want to chase the walls and redecorate?

    Have a look at the "get you plasma's out for the lads" thread for some ideas.

    Is that fire surround solid? If not, you could (fairly) easily remove it and run the cables behind. You would need to chase the walls in a little at the bottom (as the entry point) and at the top between the bottom of the plasma and the fireplace. This is what I'd try to do.


    Alternatively, you could have a small piece of trunking between the plasma and the top

    its on wide aspect ratio, if it finds a channel that has small black bars at the top it scales it so the bars no longer show, you need to set it to 16.9
