Hey there, watch out - newbie here :). All I really want is a nice, compact array of switches that I can mount on my tv wall mount to be able to individually power the different devices (tv, ps3, computer, etc). Four switches would be ok but 6 preferable (so I have two spare). All I can find is individual rocker or push switches which need soldering (screw connections like normal plugs would be so much nicer) and I know I won't be able to mount a row of them particularly neatly, and the wiring won't be pretty either (how do you neatly and safely split a wire 6-ways?). The TV mount doesn't have a lot of room which is why I'm not going down the simple, switchable extension lead route... I have a wooden surface which is long but just 54mm wide on which to mount the switches.

I'll be really grateful for any advice!

can't see why you don't just wall mount one of these simple, easy and safer.

But wall mount what? I haven't found any arrays of switches... and it would be a pain to feed all the cables from the middle of the TV mount into the wall, back out to the switches etc etc.

Have just found this http://www.starlight.com/images/PC800front.jpg which is along the right lines, shame it is american and wrong voltage. I don't need illuminated switches, but not really a big deal if they are.

So do any of you know of something like that, ideally a bit more compact with screw terminals for the wires rather sockets? cheers!

Link in my first post not showing up clearly - put your cursor on "these" in it.
