I just put my 70" Vizio on the wall (thanks for the great deal Sams Club) and I would like to know what the best practices are for wiring it up. First off, this is in the finished part of my basement, but the back of this wall is unfinished so my options are pretty wide open. Here is what I'm working with:
I have 6 wires that will come from the TV:
- IR repeater
- 3 Wii-related cables, including component video and L/R RCA audio
- 2 HDMI cables
- TV power cord
I'm assuming that the best thing to do would be to split out the HDMI and other wires from the power wires by going with a split box like this - http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=105&cp_id=10425&cs_id=1042513&p_id=6933&seq=1&format=2 (with a box like this behind http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=105&cp_id=10425&cs_id=1042507&p_id=7020&seq=1&format=2)? The power cord from my TV isn't long enough to reach through the wall to the power strip anyway, so something will need to extend it. The only drawback to this is that I won't be able to plug my TV into my power strip (old Monster Cable power strip with a fuse, warranty, etc., very robust). Any thoughts on what is best? Other options I haven't considered?
