    Hi All

    Just having our lounge refitted, having a new fireplace and tv above it (its a low heat fire). Wanted to ask about cable runs. I still have hdmi to go in , think its worth getting some flexible conduit to go from behind the tv to the bottom right corner of the room in case I need to get cables out/in in the future?
    There is a void and we`re having inset shelving put into the walls.

    Thanks

    '(its a low heat fire)' - preferably it's a 'low' fire as otherwise you may find the TV too high on your wall and uncomfortable to view, do you have the option to mock up the TV set at the intended height and see how you (and anyone else in the house) find viewing it?

    Audio - any plans for an AVR+ Speaker system or a Soundbar?
