I would like to mount a plasma to the wall. Since this is a brand new house I would rather run the cables and wires behind the wall. Problem is that the closest electrical outlet, which is near the corner of the room, and the spot where I want/can mount the TV are about 4 1/2 feet apart. I am mounting the 50" plasma tv so that the bottom is 42" from the floor.
1. Should I install a new receptacle/outlet on the wall behind where the tv will be mounted (about 50" up) or can I mount this in the normal receptacle/outlet location of about 12" inches from the floor and fish the power cord of the tv behind the wall if that is even allowable?
2. Can I run a line from the receptacle/outlet about 4 1/2 ft away? Or Should I run a whole new circuit? IF so what is 12g sufficient?
