What to do with Pioneer 436XDE TV cable

Hi Everyone,

I need to tidy up the cables and as the TV cable will be going to a single socket which is on display, it's ugly so I am considering burying the cable in the wall, and replacing the socket plate with with a fused front plate and wiring the TV cable directly to this. Will this be OK?

The main concerns I have is, I have to cut off the plug. Is there anywhere where I can get a spare cable so I can avoid destroying the original mains cable?

Has anyone done the above? Did you reduce the fuse from 13AMP to 5AMP?

Thanks in advance

I had to extend the mains (and media cables) to my 436. Got the cable and euro plug from Maplins. I decided that would keep to the original fuse at
13amp.

The power cables to the XDE display and media box are standard connectors as used for PC and kettle leads so you can replace the original one with one of these.

According to Pioneer's website, the power consumption of the display is 292 Watt (i.e. just over 1 Amp) so a 5A fuse is easily enough.
