HDMI angled adapters

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
With the HDMI ports on the side of my TV I'd like to get some angled adapters to turn the cables 90 degrees. But with the ports right next on each other I could really only use an adapter on one HDMI. Is there anything to buy to use on all 4 HDMI ports that will allow me to angle my cables up without the second adapter running right into the bottom of the first one?

I saw those, but it still doesn't solve my problem. The first adapter will work, but the second one is going to face right into the first one. They need those in different lengths so the second cable is just past the first one.

How about using the swivel adapters and using different angles for each one?  The bottom one could be 90, the next one 100, then 110 and 120 or something like that.  May not be enough room at those angles.

The only option for angles I see is the swivel type, it might work. I was thinking this would be something more people are looking for.

What's everyone else do to hide the wires?

My TV's HDMI inputs are on the side but in the back ~6 inches from the edge of the front of the screen so they are hidden by the face of the TV.

Mine are in from the edge, but doing a loop without bending them too much they stick out slightly from the edge, maybe 2 or 3 inches. I ordered 4 of the 360 degrees swivel adapters from Monoprice, I think I can hide the wires completely with them.

Thanks.

Just wanted to say I got these the other day, they work great. I can easily position the cables from all 4 inputs to stay hidden behind the TV.

Glad they worked out.
