Home Theater Part 6.6 (Power Problems)

I was out of outlets so and saw an APC A/V power conditioner for super cheap--it has 10 or 12 outlets.  While I was swapping out the old strip (6 outlets) for this one I cleaned up the cables some--yes this is much much better then before.  I've got 0 outlets to spare.  I may have to add a second duplex outlet on the wall to accommodate my IR to Insteon device, it has a pass-through plug but I don't trust running much through it and it takes up an entire duplex outlet--due to the APC conditioner using a low profile plug....

Power Cables:

  • Power Bridge (Feeds PJ and TV)
  • Receiver
  • DVD Player
  • Blu-Ray Player
  • Cable Box
  • Wii
  • Xbox 360
  • 2 Wiimote Chargers
  • HDMI Splitter
  • IR Connecting Block
  • Harmony Remote Charger
  • Cordless Phone Charger
  • 2 Lamps

I know it needs more work, I plan to bundle up the speaker cables, but other then that there are only a couple of other things I can think of doing to improve this.  All the power cables are bundled near the back of the respective component already...
