Damien Tech: This is really cool. I wish it was legal in Australia.

Matt Krywyj: Also, no customer (if you are doing this for someone else) would ever dream of settling for a extension cord after all that

Matt Krywyj: Licensed electrician....if you are following this video ignore everything to do with electric. It wont pass code
Everything else is good

Steven Machurick: you know for half the price and without having an extension cord hanging out of your wall you could do it right... just an idea...

NilsTheMan 2: My name is nils to

Donny R.: There's a little LDS temple on the table.

adrian T: Wtf who still uses an original xbox

Bon Scott rocks: That nasty infected scab on your hand needs immediate attention yuck

RayZahT: Title says 30 minutes, you said "in about an hour". Why do this to me?


Dimitrije Čaprić: But I live in a concrete building.

Matthew hunter: Wow this is a shocking piece of kit also never coil cables up in the wall no earth sleeving I suppose it's only toy car voltages in the US wouldn't be allowed in the UK

ryan yoho: You can tell this dude doesn't work in the field or he would have makes the area first, if my guys did that......... I'd question the common sense if the individual

B.L. Alley: Sorry, but as a retired electrician and AV installer I can assure you this installation isn't remotely up to code.

1. Bilge Hose is polyethylene and not rated for in-wall electrical use of any kind. You would need to use Smurf tube.
2. Standard AV cables are also not rated for in-wall or conduit use.
3. These kits leave open holes in the wall, defeating the purpose of the sheetrock by creating a chimney potential. If you had a fire under that TV your house would be engaged in half the time or less.
4. You can't leave non-metallic sheath electrical cable twisted and rolled up like that. It must be cut to length(It's also not a good idea to leave extension cords coiled or bundled).
5. You installed the upper box sideways with the receptacle on the bottom. Outlets cannot be installed facing upward unless they have hinged or threaded covers (never in damp locations).
6. Stab connectors should never be used for anything except local lighting, not high-current devices like TVs.

Another note, your stud overlay isn't exactly accurate. The studs will be adjacent to the box, not the plate which overlaps some (1/4" to 1/2"). This is important if you're mounting something heavy, which require pre-drilling the center of the studs to avoid splitting.

The proper way to do this is to first hire a licensed electrician to install a recessed receptacle behind the TV. In this case it'd be easy to come up from the existing outlet. Everyone thinks they can do electrical, but I spent my last two years as a service electrician and at least half the jobs involved fixing shoddy work by self-proclaimed 'experts' or DIYers. There is a reason professional handyman services are required to have a separate electricians license to perform electrical work.

After the A/C power is ready, a DIYer can install A/V cables as follows:

Use low voltage cut-in frames (which are like old work electrical boxes but with open backs).
You can buy decorator straps with snap-in A/V connectors, or solid trim plates with the jacks mounted to them.
To connect A/V jacks, use in-wall or plenum rated coax such as RG6 (cheaper than specialty rough-in cable)
For speaker runs, use in-wall or plenum rated speaker wire (which is jacketed). Do not use lamp cord or Monster type speaker wire in walls. For the speaker plates I recommend binding posts rather than spring terminals.
Depending on the type of jacks use, the cables will be terminated with threaded F connectors (for F to RCA jacks), RCA connectors (RCA to RCA, but not recommended since they can work free), or soldered directly to the back of the jacks.

I hope you're not charging for this service since you don't know building codes and don't have proper tools for electrical, A/V, or fishing wire. Oh, and it's a drywall saw.

Shamsher Razzak: i have concrete walls....
