    I'm planning on hanging my plasma on the wall and wish to conseal all the cables within the wall, my plan is to channel out a section of wall and have a letterbox type outlet where the cables will be connected to the plasma this will also enable me to run any future cables easerly.
    My main question is, is it ok to run the main power cable for the plasma next to all the scart cables and speaker cables? or would i be better running a seperate power cable away from the scart cables? another alternitive would be to have a socket installed next to the letterbox outlet and a short power cable going to the plasma.

    cheers for any advice

    I've seen people ask this in other threads before - have a search :)

    And the answers where basically "yes" - you want to keep you power cable away from the other cables if possible - although whether you'd be able to notice the difference that makes on your screen might depend on your eyesight/techy-ness :)
