Circuit idea required

I have purchased this DIY AC power meter from AC 80 260V LCD Digital 20A Volt Watt Power Meter Ammeter Voltmeter | eBay and want to use it with an extension cord. One of the points witll connect to TV so I want this unit to connect to the surge protector so how should the four points be connected. As per diagram, the outer two ponts show load and inner two shows input so should I power tv from outer two points and inner two shuld get AC in??

Yes, that's correct. You really ought to put it in some kind of enclosure so it's not a shock hazard. Looks like it might even fit in a single or double handy box. If you use a metal enclosure, connect it to the ground (green wire).
