Wall Mount for TV, Cable Box, and DVD Player

The Uber Setup!
Originally uploaded by jonathan.pinto.

A well done alternative to putting a table below the TV. It really works well with the TV mounted up so high. Looks like there's a outlet box behind the DVD player there. Clean install - no wires.

How about this one? A 13 hour install is a little overkill though. I'll have to say that it is very aesthetically pleasing.

How to Frame Your Flat TV

Originally uploaded by dersmi.

This is a pretty cool idea that won't work in every room, but has some potential. This is the first one of these I've come across. Way to mix it up, eh?

Flat Panel TV on a False Wall

This is another great idea. Can't use studs? Make your own false wall to anchor that mount onto!

Plasma on Wall 1

And that's what a plasma TV above a fireplace looks like. The wires are a little rough looking but he swears they covered them up. If you're wondering about how the heat from the fireplace affects the it, go to Darron's flickr page and ask him yourself (or maybe I'll beat you to it). If you miss the first one, look below.

Congrats on the install man and thanks for sharing with the rest of us.

Well, I see this question come up a lot - "Can mount my flat (plasma, lcd, etc.) TV above the fireplace"? The answer is "yes".

Here's somebody that did it and gave us pictures to prove it with. Not only did he mount his plasma TV above the fireplace but he also used only one stud in the center of the mount along with some drywall anchors. Way to go Darron!

Want to know more? Read his comments by clicking on the photo above and maybe even ask him your specifics in the photo comments section?

Want some more pics for your flat panel TV installation? Check out J. Lewis' photoset over at Flickr showing off his clean installation of his flat panel TV. When you're viewing the photos on Flickr, look closely, he has indicated notes on the photos. This is a well done and clean project. Thanks for sharing with the rest of us.
