Ours is buried in the back of the cabinet, under the bottom shelf, on the right side of the TV. Of course that cabinet door hits the couch before it's opened all the way, so very difficult to find.
I might be stating the obvious here, and you've probably already done it, but an option to try is to trace the wire from the TV back towards the plate and see where that takes you.
Also, are you sure your TV is set up for cable and not antenna? I've made that mistake before...
