    Hello, I recently purchased a plasma tv and I had a question about mounting it to the wall. The thing is...I may move to a new home eventually..so I don't want to hide the wires behind the wall. My only option is to have the wires hanging down. Now my question is..as ugly as it would already look..what can I do to make it look somewhat decent?

    I thought about painting it the same colour as my wall so its harder to notice...but if any of you have better suggestions I would appreciate it.

    Thanks.

    If you use standard PVC plastic box trunking from B&Q etc - you can aways prime and paint it the same colour as your wall.

    I used the B&Q stuff and it takes immulsion very well without priming.

    Hi

    I have made up my own trunking by running 2 wood battens down the wall ( approx 17mm x 35mm to allow all scart and ancillary cables to run in), gluing some side quadrants to a flat 112mm x 10mm wood panel and screwing that into the battens and painting same colour as wall.

    Looks far superior to plastic trunking as the larger suface area appears more aesthetically pleasing

    you can just see it behind the center speaker in my signature

    regards

    I had a feeling it might - I guess I was erring on the side of caution. :)
