We suggest that customers stow the adapter in an extra recess to connect additional devices (a set-top box or flash drive/hard drive) or in a bathroom cabinet placed on the same wall if it is supposed to be there. There is an option of taking the extended interfaces of the TV and power adapter behind the wall, where the faucets are placed if the situation allows and this is acceptable to the customer.
