Was able to mount all of my "desk stuff" on the shelves. Have a spot left over for my upcoming DVR project.


Was finally able to clean up the mess of cables under my desk! :thup:

That's really nice! I've never even contemplated rack mounting hardware like that before. Pretty good cost efficiency there as well. :attn:

Will be doing something similar in the coming months after I finish some other, more pressing, projects.

Nice job tidying up!

Thanks.

I'm really loving this thing...just the clutter reduction on my desk is great. (Now my cat can be my copilot without having to worry about him unplugging anything!)

The switch is working very nice.

I'll be adding the next shelf with the HDHomerun Prime very soon.
