insulated wood burning stove pipe

I have removed a wood burning stove from my house, and now I want to cut off flush the protruding insulated chimney pipe that is sticking through my wall. I want to cap it off, and mount my big screen tv over the hole. Is the insulated chimney pipe safe to cut off? Is the insulation safe? What should I use to cut?

How old is the installation? What sort of insulation is in the pipe?
You can contact the company who made it and ask them or you can post a photo and maybe we can identify it.
If it's safe to cut, you can use a grinder with a metal cutting composite blade to cut it off. They sell caps you can use to seal the pipe after you insulate it.

Ayuh,... I'd think it would make more sense to completely Remove the pipe, 'n rebuild/ reinsulate the wall...

If it's a modern stainless steel insulated "through wall" thimble, you want to remove it. Should be easy. If you can get it all taken apart without damaging it, you can sell it. Those components are expensive.
