Finally got all the new stuff hooked up and noticed the new TV stand (Samsung TR56L5S for oour HLN567W) suddenly allowed viewing of the rat's nest of cabling behind the stand coming from the tv, wall connections, and right-side entertainment center pier.


Since I'm not going to be able to put anything on the TV stand shelves for a while (we are blessed with a 10-month old boy crawling around with wild abandon right now ) I decided I'd finally take the time and work on reducing the cable clutter.

component, digital coax and audio cables can be custom made to length pretty easy if you are handy with a soldering iron. Or you can use compression fittings for a bit more money.

You should be able to find some good quality 1 1/2' to 3' foot cables without to much problem at any one of these places.

Ordered and received an assortment of short cables from Parts Express (all Dayton cables, went ahead and got new speaker cables while I was at it) and very please with the results.


The 1.5' component video cables were backordered but everything else shipped very quickly.


Thanks for the info!

Parts Express for the most part, kicks some serious butt. When it comes to the selection of what they offer, and the prices that they offer it for.

How are ya Liaury, that is as big as the properties that jpeg allowed. I could copy it to a re-sizing software program possibly.
