    So far i've cut the channels in my wall for wall mounting my plasma and i've sunken a single mains backing box into where the plasma will sit. The only thing I can think of to keep the entry and exit holes to the wall clean is to fit a blanking plate with a 2 inch hole drilled out.

    Ideas anyone?

    Sounds good to me. If you want to make it look really good you could put a rubber grommet around the cable which fits into the hole so that it's sealed up tightly. :)

    I have the cables to my projector coming through the ceiling by a drilled blanking plate. I didn't fit a gromet but sanded the edge of the hole smooth and stuffed black fabric into the hole around the cable and it looks very neat.

    I made a gromet out of plumbing parts, you can see photos in the CRT PJ section under the CRT install thread :)

    I used office desk gromets sourced from a local stationary wholesaler. Look the part and allow easy access.
