Alright, I'll just start with the problem: In order to run the cables I'd need to open up my wall in like three different places and I don't feel like doing all of the patch work just after I've finished painting the place. So what I've done is I've bought some tunnels to run the cables through. Not the best looking option, but its better than what I've got now, and I'll paint them the wall color to match. Here's the problems: I've got two HDMI cables running to the TV so I need to get a switch so I'll have room in the tunnel. I've got my eye on this guy: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/t..._shr?_encoding=UTF8&m=A2JSBUBRVPP4SX&v=glance I really don't need the gold cable, but its 1.3 HDMI, cheap, and is usable with a remote. Any thoughts? Bigger problem: the power cord won't reach the plug on the side of the TV that I'm running the tunnels. Is there anywhere I can buy a longer shielded power cord thats not $100. Or is there anywhere that sells shielded cords and I can just splice it in? Lastly, I need a slim center speaker that will fit in between the TV and the mantle and not suck. For the other two speakers I'm just going to get stands, but the center has no where to go for the moment, hence sitting on a box. Any suggestions?
