Wire Management Help

Does anyone else have this problem? My wires look awful. Everything's too long, and sticks out of the sides of the back of the TV stand. How do you all manage your cords? Do you just hide them behind other furniture? Use any sort of binders to hold them together?

Right now, I have a three-shelf TV stand with two holes in the back, an HDTV, a 360, Comcast DVR, and a DVD home theater-in-a-box system, and there's wires everywhere.

Mine's a bit of a mess right now, so I don't have a good example to show. But generally you want to run the power separately, say down one side of the cabinet. And everything else down the other side.

Look up "wire loom" or "cable loom" for some products to help hide them. And velcro cable ties are useful, too. Or just regular plastic cable ties if you are confident you won't need to adjust anything.

I use the plastic cable looms. The flexible tubes with a slit down the side. It keeps things nice and neat. Just hope you don't have to replace anything later on, as it's kind of a pain to pull them back out again.
