In 2008, I had a local home theater dealer/installer mount an LCD on the wall of my living room. In 2011, I moved from that house and took the TV with me. Upon removing it from the wall, I discovered power was supplied to it via a kind of extension cord from the closet, where all my components were, to the tv on the wall. From researching things, i found that extension cords cannot be used in walls, but I guess, technically since both ends of the cord were outside the wall, it's ok. I am right in this assumption? The cord itsself was an inwall rated cord, and the ends were heavy duty, so it wasn't a light weight lamp cord. If anyone out there has some guidance on this, I'd be much appreciative. Thanks

This is what many folks use if they do not want to install a dedicated circuit for a wall mounted TV. The wire that runs between the 2 receptacles is Romex and the extension cord connects the bottom receptacle with the prongs to an existing wall receptacle..
