Wall Mounting A Flat Panel In My Basement

Ok guys here's my situation.

I would like to wall mount my 32" flat panel tv in my basement. My problem is that behind the drywall is cement but there is a 8" gap in between the drywall and cement. I need some ideas of how I can safely mount the wall base.

Thanks in advance.

What holds up the drywall? 2x4's? Most mounts are designed to screw in to the studs. If the location you chose doesn't allow for this, screw a couple of horizontal 2x4s to the studs and screw the mount to those. If you don't like the look of exposed wood on your wall, remove the drywall, install the support framing, and replace the drywall.

and the next question is - how do plan on running the power and AV cables to the TV? Were you planning on running them behind the wall, adding an outlet behind the TV, installing a channel on the wall to hide the cables or just letting them dangle in plain view?
