Installing SAT receiver

Starting to move into our 3701LK. There are 2 places to install Sat Receiver.
Neither place has a 110 outlet and neither has a hole to route the cords.

I know it may sound nitpicky, but my definition of "satellite ready" is a lot different. There is a spare plug at the TV, but no way to cleanly route the power cable much less the HDMI. And if the DW wants to use her Blueray well she is out of luck.

guess I need to break out the sawsall......

I also took a 1" hole saw and then used plastic sleeves, like you use for a desk, to line the edges of the holes. I ran mine behind the crappy DVD player and then fished it out the bottom like the DVD wires and then to the TV. Eventurally I took the crappy DVD player out and put a Blue Ray in and yes I did use a saw on that job.
