    As a handyman, I hang many HDTV's and hide many cables, usually in wall. Fireplaces are some of the hardest to work with to hide cables... Note: If you use your fireplace, the heat is NOT good for the life of the HDTV... The vinyl hide-a-cord wire-ways are a viable solution and do look better than the visible cords. Ensure the cables are long enough in one run to fit inside cleanly. There is usually not enough room for plug ends or extension cord ends inside the wire-way. If you have to use extension power cords, use the single outlet inline extension cords as they are much smaller than the multi outlet extension cords and are easier to hide. Another solution is to build an "L" or "U" shaped box, painted to match the wall and/or the fireplace, that rests vertically where the cables hang down. It doesn't need to be very large and can be held in place by some peel-n-stick Velcro buttons. If it's an "obvious" element next to your fireplace, you might want to make a similar one for the opposite side to provide symmetry. You can make a similar box that can sit on top of the mantel to hide the cables from the tv to the corner of the mantel. If you paint the cables to match the wall and/or the mantel, they will also become less noticeable, especially at the corner where the cables "make the turn". Please respond with the solution you use and show some photos. I'm always looking for good ideas.
