    Default Mount flatscreen above ventless fireplace

    Carpentry
    Question:Full Description:The cable (Satellite) wires enter through the wall to the left of fireplace right next to electrical outlet. My question is this: do I tear out wall around the fireplace come down to tie into everything? Or do I go directly out through wall into fireplace cavity drop wires down, drill hole in bottom of cavity and bring the wires outside and back into house where cables from satellite come in? Please tell me that there is a simple solution to my dilemma!

    The manufacturer of the flatscreen might have something to say about the location.
    Sorry about hijacking the post, though.

    That's a tough question when we don't know the construction of the fire place or the surround.
