Hi guys,

 

 

 

Does anyone have a recommendation for some kind of cable conduit/channel you could install behind the gib where a wall-mounted TV would go that drops cables out just above the skirting?  Have seen these sorts of things online, but curious to know if they're available locally?  

Would likely be for TV power and ethernet cable, HDMI from TV to amp etc.

i just went to bunnings and bought the 32mm orange conduit pipe for most things. 

 

 

 

for tvs to entertainment units where i would be running lots of cables, i used something like this

Yeah thats overkill, but my last house the electrician recommended just drilling some holes with draw wire.  that was a PITA to work with, so never again.

 

 

 

Im not sure if youre legally allowed to run power through a wall like that????

Run 2 of them in that case, power in one, everything else in the other. Just check that an IEC plug will fit thru whatever conduit you use since that is the largest thing that a TV will have on it. Some have a stupid right angle one but you can swap that for a longer one with a normal plug if needed.
