I am pretty much done with the basic setup of my HTS, except I have not plugged in the power cords as of yet. The problem is that where I positioned the equipment, there is no 3-pronged outlet, so I need 30ft of extension cord that I can then plug into my surge suprressor to reach the equipment. The instructions advise against this course of action, as they say it is a fire hazard to plug extension cords into extension cords. However, it is either doing this or having the outlet modified (which seems like it would cost a lot more). So can anyone comment on this? Are there any people on here that do use extension cords like this with or without negative consequences? Thanks for the comments, I am itching to plug this baby in.
