Wiring question: One switch controls 2 outlets
I just moved into a new place and in one room of the house, there is a single switch that controls 2 outlets (actually I don't know if thats the correct terminology, it controls both the top and bottom plugs of one outlet).
That is the only outlet on that wall, and it is also the wall where the cable tv comes out, so I want to make it so that only 1 of the two outlets is switch controlled, and the other is always hot, this way we can have a light in the switch controlled one and the tv in the hot one.
Is there an easy way to make one of the two outlets always hot? I'm no electrician but I can usually take care of little things with instructions, if its too difficult for someone without electrical knowledge to do I'll just leave it alone or get someone qualified, but it doesnt seem like it should be too complicated in my head. Barring that, if there some other way besides rewiring to do this? I wouldnt think so.
Thanks for any help/info
