    Hi, after many months of looking on the forum have finally ordered a PWD8 :clap: Will be plastering cables into wall over weekend, so was wondering what the length of the power lead is as nearest socket from where screen is going is 4 metres away in corner of pic.

    Why not fit a fused spur in the vacinity,then run a 1.5mm cable to the back of the plasma behind the plaster?

    Just get a fused spur in if you can. When you get the cord with the plasma cut the plug off and wire it into the spur. You could also just get an IEC kettle type lead and get it all set up ready.

    If it was me mate, put a fused spur low level(near the floor).
    Then run a piece of flex or twin &earth cable to behind the plasma into another box (sunken).
    This then gives you a connection to the plasma lead and can be isolated.

    Power socket is on the left hand side of the panel as you look at it from the front.
