    I'm trying to straighten out the snarl of cables behind my A/V equipment, which is stacked up on shelves under my projection TV screen:

    - Receiver
    - VCR
    - DVD player
    - TiVo
    - Video games

    With all the audio, video, and power connections going back and forth, it ends up as a complete mess, and I have no idea how to make it simpler. It would be nice if I had a rack which let me tie the cables off to the sides, but I'm not that high-end.

    When you're interconnecting components which are stacked on top of each other, do you run the cables directly between components and wrap the cables up to be as short as necessary? Or do you run them to the side, or wrap them in corkscrew cable wrap, or what? Do you label your connections, and if so then what scheme do you use, like color coding?
