Hi, just looking for some advice. I’m planning to build a media tv wall with fire. Looking to have a socket spurred to behind where the tv will be positioned on the wall. However i have been let down by my electrician this week and really need to start the project. Will building the stud wall frame hinder the electrical work? Thinking I could build the frame, await my electrician coming next week and then all that would be left is plaster-boarding.
If you want to assemble and install the stud work first, I would suggest you cut a notch out from all the timbers as required, so you end up with a route from the TV to where the socket will be fed from. The notch should be 3cm x 1.5 cm minimum. You may also want to consider the same for any other cables for your TV, such as Aerial, HDMI, USB, etc. Are you sure 1 socket will be enough? I am thinking if it is a Media Wall, what about satellite receiver, DVD player, Aerial amplifier, Sound bar, Back lights, Surround system.
