Hello, I was wondering what ideas some of you may have for this, I want to organize the cables and various items behind my TV and media stand. However I have power bricks form various boxes (Xbox 360[damn massive thing], Wii, My upcoming HTPC, etc.) I dont know what to do with them, they take up space and i didn't think it was good shove them underneath the stand because of the heat (360 one wouldn't fit anyway) What do some of you do? Any suggestions? I can't use anything like recess boxes as im in an apartment and cannot do any major alterations. Thanks

I have a TV stand that hides all of mine ... however what you could do is make a section of false trim to place behind the TV stand using some trim from Home Depot or Lowes that hides the bricks and cables. I am going to do something similar with my projector cords/surround sound speaker that run along the side wall in my media room (to much trouble to run them in the wall as I would have to drill through so many studs and can't ceiling mount the projector due to a fan).

If you're a little bit handy, what about making a wooden box stained to match or compliment the media stand or otherwise look like something that might hold DVDs/CDs. Make it big enough to hold the bricks. Keep the back open so you can run cables in and out to the components. Have a power strip inside so that all bricks start from within the box and just one going to the outlet. Perhaps cut some discrete vent slots in the top if heat is a concern.


Then set the thing right in the rack.


Heck, bet you could do this with a sturdy cardboard media box and an exacto knife and forget about getting all Norm Abrams



...just thinking out loud.

Take a large shoebox, preferable one that came with boots, cut out on both of the short ends an 3x3 hole, put all the cables and bricks inside, and work the cables out through the holes.
