Now THAT would be appealing. Especially the 3 diff voltages. Not $1000 appealing but . . .

Magenta Research has had a version of this for about 10 years. Its called Mini Dense Pack and it supports 12v and 5v requirements

You can get it from tvONE and tvONE has a 12v only version called P2-105

I have been working on a few projects around the house since the last updates, but I don't have as much time as I once did. Right now we are tearing out the fireplace, installing a linear fireplace, recessing the TV, and lowering it. This is the current.

Vent cut outs so that if there is ever a gas leak, it won't turn the kitchen into a giant NG explosion.
Britton,

For your TV mounted to your outdoor Kitchen, Did you run any data back to the rack? If you did, how did you debarc the House? I am thinking it will have to be done through Conduit run down the exterior walls, but for aesthetics I would like to avoid that if there is another way. Im also assuming you ran wire channels in your patio slab during your home construction to reach the Outdoor Kitchen and Heater/Ornamental Posts next to the couch?

Hope All is well.

You got it right... I cut a single gang mud ring into the soffit, then used a stainless steel blank with a hole cut into it to accept a male threaded conduit fitting for seal-tight flexible waterproof electrical conduit. The flex conduit is strapped to the side of the house and connects to plastic PVC conduit that runs below the grill under the slab. I would go take some pictures because it was actually a really interesting install, but the snow....

Our mini-remodel is almost done. Walls have been smoothed (no more texture), new fireplace, TV cavity trimmed out, TV recessed and lower now. Martin Logans moved from upstairs, family room speakers now in game room. Built ins added. Loving the gray color.
