    Oops, sorry about that click on wrong address window.

    Eliminate messy wires. Conceal cable boxes, DVD players, or any HDTV device with the Acoustic Research HDP100 HD Powerlink SystemThe HD Powerlink System transmits digital high definition signal to your TV via existing home power lines. It transmits the highest quality HD signal available up to 1080p. A lower cost alternative to professional installation that removes the clutter of wires and the expense of wall reconstruction!

    Yes, but you can hide an outlet behind the screen. And yes you do need power for it to work but the interconnect cables are gone.

    That's cool. I could have used that myself when I got my new TV and wall mounted it.

    These band-aids are usually only compatible with the lowest common denominator of connectivity options, and certainly cannot be counted on for compatibility with future connectivity.

    To leave yourself plenty of options, fish in a run of conduit or corrugated raceway (ie: "smurf" tube or Carlon orange raceway).

    If you can pull wire to install an AC receptacle, you should be able to do this as well.

    FWIW,
    Today's flat panel pre-wire would consist of a high quality HDMI cable, component video cable (for redundancy/backup if the HDMI fails), Cat5E/6 for network, and the aforementioned raceway stub.

    If you are going to have an LCR soundbar type speaker installed on the panel and connected to a home theater, pull three pairs of 16 or 14 awg in-wall rated speaker wire as well.
    I wish the GCs I worked with were as quality-minded as Tom Silva and Mike Holmes.

    I'm betting it doesn't meet the newest V1.4 standards. Nice idea but it needs a USB upgrade port or it will be old news in 6 months....
