Question
I want a box or hub, to mount for all my cable TV, phone, Ethernet and electrical cords in one I have a lot of wires behind my entertainment center and wanted to know if there is an all in one box that I can mount inside the wall to eliminate the mess of wires to the modem, router, and surge protectors I currently have ..Is there such a box? What is it called? where can I find it?

Answer
I do not know of one, not that it does not exist I just have not heard of one. If you want to make something work, you can purchase a metal box called an " Austin " box and put access holes with bushings in the bottom and route the wires into it. The come with a cover. There are weather proof and regular boxes, I would use the regular box. There are many sizes, so you could use the one that is large enough for your particular components. Thanks J
