Don't stack devices.

If you place devices above the HD Monitor, route all cables down the side of the back of the
HD Monitor instead of straight down the middle of the HD Monitor.
If your antenna uses 300-ohm twin lead cables, do not coil the cables. Also, keep the twin
lead cables away from audio/video cables.
