    I recently had a smaller TV with legs connected to an existing co-axle outlet on the wall; however the length of the cord is too long and I would like to buy a much shorter one or have the existing one shortened so it won’t be so bulky behind the TV? What is the shortest co-axle cord that I can buy? I only have a max of 1 1/2- 2″ between wall & co ax connection on back of TV?
