    We're having a Snipe V2 fitted on Thursday to work with our Sky HD box. I've bought a 2m HDMI cable to run behind the MH panelling to the back of the panelling the TV is attached to. I've also bought a short HDMI cable to run from the TV into a socket on the panelling. Problem is I can't find an HDMI socket to fit on the panel (to replace the triple red white and yellow socket in the attached pic).
    Can anyone help or offer any alternative suggestions please.

    So do you mean that it's not possible to have HDMI direct from the sky box to the back of the TV (unless of course we punch a hole in the wall behind the TV)? That we've got to use the yellow white red sockets?

    Thanks Geo. That's just what we need. What are the dimensions?

    If I understand what you are trying to do then this would work.

    Just Google for "hdmi wall socket". For neatness I suggest get two and connect them with your cable behind the panel. You don't actually wire them, they have another socket at the back the cable plugs into.

    If you find the cable sticks out at the back too much buy a cable with right angle or swivel ends.

    Another question. How easy would it be to remove the silver panel where our TV sits, in order to add Geo's HDMI socket?

    If you are not using the exsis ting connection just use that box with the HDMI insert instead of what's in it already, I bought a blank and fitted an HDMI to HDMI int it with resin glue then just plug you cable in to both sides.
