    HI

    I would like some advice on deciding the best way forward for a wall mounted plasma TV. My thinking for this project was to have all the cabling (power, aerial, scart, hdmi) to run from the plasma out to a exterior wall and then after 1m back into the house..

    Is this possible, will it be okay to have these cables outside, do we need trunking, etc, do we need to purchase special scart cables, etc to support wider temperature range, etc.

    Also has anyone done a similiar installationand was the it okay with NO bad perfromance issues.

    Thanks

    It would be better to run these cables within the wall, either by channeling a slot in a plastered brick wall or cutting a channel in a plasterboard wall, then replastering as required. The cables should be terminated in proper AV faceplates top allow connection to your AV sources and plasma.
