Idea's for placement of video equipment

OK, I have a 2013 Grey Wolf 28bh, and the entertainment center has those nice shallow cabinets. My question is where is everyone placing there direct TV tuner and DVD players. It is pretty lame they made them so shallow. My old FR Palomino had a nice deep cabinet that housed all my goodies and could still shut the cabinet door to hide the electronics. I would hate to have to remove that upper cabinet and make a shelf to go there. Anyone else come up with a solution. And on a side note can anyone come up with a reason that they would run the sat. cable to the booster plate but not hook it up or add a wall plate just for sat. Dealer told me the cable is there you just have to get a splitter to connect it. How lame the simple details are left undone.
Any rate anyone have suggestions/pictures of their setup.
Thanks in advance.

I hope someone replies because I have the same problem. We have a deep cabinet under the TV but it is about one inch too narrow. Plus, I would have to leave the door open to access the controls. We keep the DVD and the Dish receiver sitting on the TV counter which is plenty big enough but it is not a pretty setup.

I upgraded the size of my TV which goes all the way to the shelf so the equipment cant set there. Plus the Direct tv tuner overhangs that shelf even if could set there. I just hate to tear that upper cabinet out of a three week old trailer. But hey I might be forced to.

The rest of the pieces have been ordered.
1X2 Mini HDMI® Splitter w/ 3D support - Monoprice.com 2 each

10ft 28AWG High Speed HDMI® Cable w/Ferrite Cores - Black - Monoprice.com 1 each

3ft 28AWG High Speed HDMI® Cable w/Ferrite Cores - Black - Monoprice.com
4 each
Two-Piece Inset Wall Plate with 4 Inch Built-in Flexible High Speed HDMI® Cable With Ethernet - Single Port (1P) - White - Monoprice.com

The plan is to be able to watch DVD/Direct TV/Antenna on the bedroom and or living room area. I plan on taking pictures during the install of all equipment just in case anyone else is interested.

Completed wiring of Direct TV reciever

While replacing the antenna booster, I found the cable/sat connector broken and the wire shoved in the ceiling, this is a brand new trailer there is no excuse for that type of workmanship. But all is repaired and this is a set of photo showing the HDMI wall plates as well as the coaxial wall plates installed and the new outlet in the lower compartment of the entertainment center.

Okay I have a 2013 Cherokee Grey wolf 28bh but to my knowledge I don't have a satellite cable pre ran in my camper. In your pics what is the black device on the wall with the green light and cable lines hooked to it? Also is there anyway you could post some pics taken a little bit further away so I can tell where these items are mounted in the camper? If I understand correctly we should have the same camper but I'm kinda thinking they aren't the same.
