Another, much more elegant solution is an in-wall electrical outlet extender, such as this one
, which I used when I installed my Z9D. (Note that you never want to run an AC power cable or extension cord inside the wall, as it is a fire hazard and in violation of most building codes
; these extenders, however, are code compliant as they use Romex-type sheathed cabling between the outlets.)
Even though the cabling is all hidden behind my wall unit, I still opted for the outlet extender in this installation just for posterity's sake in case I (or another future homeowner) should replace the wall unit. (And my wife's insistence that it was strictly due to my OCD is completely off target.
Here's what it looks like once installed:
The TV plugs into the upper outlet, which connects to the lower outlet, which in turn plugs into my UPS. The UPS is plugged into a regular AC outlet to the side of the wall unit.
The finished look:
