TV above fireplace--how do you run cables for cable box/DVD
I'm not sure exactly where I should be asking this question. Usually I'm on the kitchen forum, but I need to figure out my TV problem some place else.
The only good place to put a TV in our new family room is above the new direct vent, see through gas fireplace. I've read all about heat problems and height issues. The TV won't be mounted very high, and seating is about 15 feet away. We will be getting a new TV to fit the space.
I can't seem to find out how/where you put the cables to run from the TV to the cable box and DVD player, etc. There is NO place on the fireplace wall to put the cable box and DVD player. The wall is 5' wide, 2' thick, and in the middle of the house separating the family and living rooms. The only option for components (box and player) location would be on a cabinet across the room from the TV. Does this even work? Do you run cables up the fireplace wall, across the attic, down through the adjacent wall, and out at the components area?
Sorry if I sound ignorant. I am! TIA for any help!
