Hi people - there have been some great posts on how to wire a house, many thanks to all involved.

I'm stuck on what to do with VGA cable to a projector. I have a 10m cable i need to run down a wall, but the standard VGA plug is a monster and would require drilling a ~40mm+ hole in the cross members - and I'm sure the builder would have a meltdown (the wall is flagged as structural/weight bearing and we've already had to be careful with the holes for network cable).

Short of cutting the plug off then laboriously soldering the 3 x coax + 9 other wires back together, are there any tricks that installers know for this situation?

Any tips much appreciated!Wink

I went with the big whole design. Squarish, stuffed the VGA, CAt5  and an audio line through it.
Packed the extra space with bubble wrap to sound proof and insulate.

Just be aware that this isn't a great idea if you ever want to pull cable through again in the future!

It is a bit of an installation, to take cables out,  I just pull out the bubble wrap and take the cables out.
Then put the bubble wrap back and put a picture over the gaping whole. :)

Haha, can see myself doing the same thing - projector screen is nice and big, should hide a few exploration holes!
