I received a request for information today that took me off-guard. What kind of conduits and other cable-organizing-devices are available on the market for HDTVs, home stereos, and other modular home electronics goodies that tend to have alot of cables? I check in a Staples I visited this evening, and found nothing.

There is always the telecom velcro wrap http://www.amazon.com/Cblwhl-Velcro-Cable-Tie-Roll/dp/B000I97FJ2/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1358048492&sr=8-9&keywords=velcro+wrap While they are a bit on the expensive side, http://www.walmart.com/ip/Cable-Wraptor-Large/16541091 is good for bundling large or many cables together. I use a couple of those to gather the cables then clean up with the velcro

I use velcro cable ties to bundle the wires behind the device, if I can't hide it or if its' visible I run the wires inside of the flexible conduit. It's a bit of a PITA to work with but once you get the cables in it works well.

Wire loom with velcro ties around the loom is my favorite method for cable management. I never suggest putting the velcro or plastic ties on the cables them self. Because it becomes a royal PIA if you need to switch one out. I also tack them to the wall, which happens to be a method we use at work.
