Running cables near fireplace


I'm looking to install a TV over the fireplace (we don't use the fireplace) and have a question on how to run the cables. What are the chances that if I cut a hole behind the picture, I can fish some down the wall to the basement (at the left side of the clock). Thanks

Re: Running cables near fireplace


Do you have a pic of basement ceiling where you are hoping the cable will enter the basement?

I just looked and I don't think it will work regardless. In the crawl space, the section that I would need to come up, is over the exterior wall and there is no room to get in there and drill a hole. I measured from a conduit that feeds a outlet to the wall and I have 25", when I measure that upstairs, it puts me an 1" short of the bricks. Bummer.
