I have a murphy bed (wall bed) that I would like to mount a 46 inch Samsung UN46D8000 on. Space is extremely limited, to the tune of 250 square feet (that is my entire home). The bed is the only place that this would fit and still have a nice viewing angle from the couch. I know I have seen installations for television on peoples ceilings, so I know it is possible. I like the 46 inch Samsung 8000 for many reasons but its depth is one of the biggest draws in my case. I had already purchased a 6000 series and was ready to mount it but the panel lighting was so terrible that I returned it with the intention of getting the 8k. This prompted the question on this forum, because the price of the television is making me think twice.
The bed is ALWAYS kept in the upright position during the day, but at night I fold it down. There is plenty of clearance underneath the bed for the television (the legs are around 6 inches themselves) but I am worried about the effects it could have on the led panel. Essentially the TV would be spending 1/3rd of its life face down. Is this a bad idea? Should I be looking into a cheaper television for this installation? I could potentially build a "box" around the TV to help with support, since the TV mount itself may not provide enough support. Also, I have read that mounting your television panel down can have overheating issues. This will not be a problem for me because when the bed is down, the TV will be turned off. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
THANKS in advance
