    I've got my PW7 mounted a good 4ft up a wall, and I have a rather
    substancial THOR branded scart lead coming down the wall from it.

    As its rather heavy, and the metal shield is weighty too, it does have
    a tendency to come ever so slightly loose, so are there any ways of
    securing the lead, in the same way that the power cable has a small
    threaded loop thing to stop it drooping out or taking any strain...

    Ideally, it'd be nice if scart cables had a screw fitting in the same way
    that computer interface cables have, but hey...


    Thanks!

    if you cannot get electric cable clips to fit try using ones for copper pipe which start at 8mm dia - available from B&Q etc

    hope this helps

    Ah, Steve - you didn't read the manual did you in your excitement to get it up on the wall.... :lol:

    Along the bottom of the panel, roughtly where you stick the input board stickers there are some black square plastic fittings approx 1cm * 1cm - these are designed to take cable ties for securing the cables.

    I will try and post a picture later tonight - my (PW 37") is on a stand so the fixings are more visible.

    What I am interested in is some way to fix the scart securely onto the JS box and back of the sky box.

    Here you go - you might not see it too well if you're mounted on the wall, in my pic it's the highlighted part, you pass a cable tie through it to fix the cables. I would suggest mains one way and signal the other.
