I have searched the threads but haven't found an answer to this question. I will be building new walls in a room and as long as I can save some space I want to recess my TV to get it flush or at least closer to the wall. When I build the recessed "window" how much bigger than the TV does it need to be so I can get the TV onto the mount.
As this is built from scratch the recess will be at what I consider best viewing height but I will use a tilting mount just for some safety margin. I need to build the wall long before I get a TV so if any "rules of thumb" exist I would appreciate it.
