    Question Flat Screen wall mounts and cable boxes...

    Advertisements
    If you have your flat screen mounted, where do you keep your cable box? This applies to flat screens in the living rooms.

    In the LR the boxes are on a regular tv stand below. And in our bedroom our tv is mounted right above our armoire so they sit on it. Looks good both ways.
    Needs work.

    We were going to mount ours to the wall and have a nice TV stand underneath for the cable box, DVD player and Wii. Then we found out it was $400 to have it done so we have the TV sitting on the stand. We weren't going to try to mount our $1200 52 inch plasma by ourselves.

    Ours is mounted and the cable box sits inside the tv cabinet below it. We have a cable "hider" that we painted to match the wall.

    Thanks for the replies ladies. If we're going to spend 1K+ on a flat screen tv, I'd rather NOT have it in DS's reach. A cabinet below seems to be a better option...but then again, we're thinking of mounting it above the fireplace and mantel. But then again, we need to think about the heat that generates from the fireplace, since the fireplace is a prefab one. This is all sorts of confusing...LOL!!!
