I'm hanging a flat screen...
I'm hanging a flat screen tv over the fireplace. What is the name of the electrical outlet that's indented inside the wall that allows you to hide the electrical cords behind the tv without being seen?
Thanks,
Ray

Hello Ray and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your electrical question.

1) There are 2 different options to wiring up a wall mounted television.

One method is to hard-wire a recessed wall receptacle and the other method is to install an in-wall power cord kit.

See link shown below for the in-wall power cord kit sold at Home Depot:

Here is a link for a hard-wired recessed receptacle version also sold at Home Dept:
