    Morning

    I am planning sticking my TV up on the chimney breast in the living room and would like to have no wires at all.

    I am looking to get a faceplate that will have HDMI / power etc which i will run the lines through before plastering. Has anyone done this and recommend any? I guess it will be a faceplate for the HDMI and then a plug put in separately?

    Also can you join two of these together? So i can plug my Sky box into one faceplate at the bottom of the chimney and the TV into the other on the wall?

    Thanks.

    Better off running a channel/pipe with an opening either end (brush faceplate?) So you can change cables in the future IMO.

    you can get faceplates which have a female hdmi to allow you to plug things in either end, I had some euro socket types but the connections are hard wired with a tail and it wouldn't fit in a backbox, so I ended up doing brush plates with a standard cable in the wall...

    HDMI is bad enough, you don't want more crossovers on a faceplate.

    Run a brush cover over a box and a conduit to run cables in the future.
