How should I hide the cables after mounting a TV to my brick wall fireplace?

If you feel you have enough separation between your brick wall fireplace and your HD TV, the best way to hide the cables is to let them remain tightly coiled up behind the large HD TV screen and then to place the control center close to your fireplace. This will leave no evidence of any wires going from behind the HD TV to the control center. You will be installing not only your sound cables, but also your cable system cables as well as any other devices, such as a DVD player or gamebox. All of your wires should be kept as short as possible to reduce clutter and prevent tripping on cords, which can pull the TV from the wall or cause injury.
