Cable Box

Anyone have any ideas as to how to hang the cable box onto the back or under a hdtv that is hanging on the wall?   Not the big ones the small ones with the light on the front

 

Thanks

Re: Cable Box

I would probably take a different approach and not put the box under the TV at all.   I would install the box out of sight and then just feed the TV from that location (if you've attached the TV to the adapter via RF coax, then wherever the split occurs for the outlet you're using to feed the TV).   Then get a remote extender (there are numerous types and approaches) to control the box -- remote extenders not needing line of sight from the remote to the box.

 

If you're set on the putting it with the TV, then there are several models of component shelves which could possibly do the trick.

I assume the TV you have wall mounted doesn't have a cable card slot -- if so, you could get rid of the adapter and just rent a cable card instead.

Re: Cable Box

Thanks for that.....I own a small 22" Vizio HDTV thats hanging on the wall.  I have a the box sitting on my computer table and wanted it out of the way.  My doctors office has the same setup as I want (The box looks as though its hanging on the back of the TV) but maybe the option of that shelf will do the trick.

 

Thanks Again

Re: Cable Box

I saw someone suggest Velcro if the box is small and light enough.
