5 years ago or so when I drywalled my lower area, I added a cable
splitter to the line that comes into the house (lower left corner of
room). This was done inside the wall. Rather than build in some type
of access panel then I simply covered it up.
Now that I'm looking to put HD into my house, I need to replace that
splitter (I need a bidirectional splitter). Possibly even replace it
with a combo amplifier/splitter. If so then I'd need to run a power
line to an outlet. But I'll stick with replacing the splitter with a
bi splitter if that's the easiest thing to cover up.
I'm trying to figure out an aesthetic way to do this. I could cut out
a small section from stud to stud and add some wood to the top & bottom
(inside the wall) for a box, then add some molding around the outside
and replace the cut out with a piece of wood that's latched to the
molding. (this is what I have in a closet for an access panel to the
attic). But since this is in my family room I'm not sure how good
that will look.
Maybe cut out a section the size of an outlet box, but I doubt that
would give me enough room to work.
Maybe invent a time machine and go back 5 years...
Was wondering if anyone had suggestions.
