    OK, so the power cord from my TV (mounted on the wall above my fireplace) runs through the wall to an outlet several feet away.

    I want to get a soundbar, but I don't want any cables showing.

    Is there some kind of power cord splitter that can still run into the receptacle on the back of my TV while having something coming off of it to plug the soundbar into? The end going into my TV is the typical female end like the kind that goes into an amp.

    Is there a solution to my problem?

    If anyone would know, it would be you guys.

    Thanks

    Hmm, so you want a power cord that daisy chains from the tv to the sound bar. Kind of like running speaker cabinets I guess.

    I haven't seen any but I think it's a pretty good idea.

    What you can buy is a y power cable. It's one plug with two sockets at the other end. They get used for desktop computers to run the CPU and the monitor of the the outlet.

    Good luck!

    Yeah, I found this, but I don't know that it would work, given that the recess for the power on the TV is a specific size.
