hi there! I am new here. . . I wanted to see if anyone else has installed a plasma in the wall so it can rotate between 2 rooms. I want to do this so the TV can face my bedroom, or flip in and it is seen from the dining room.

I would love some advise, ideas, pictures of this type of thing, etc.

Looking forward to reading responses!

Simple, just get an articulating and swiveling plasma mount. They aren't cheap ($400 to $500), but work great.

I saw this in a luxury home showcase. There was a 42" plasma mounted on such a platform that swiveled between a position over a master bedroom jacuzzi and an interior courtyard facing a dining/BBQ area. Pretty impressive, though given the price of plasmas now (and the price of that house) it would probably be more effective (and practical) to simply get a second TV.

I have a 61" Nec mounted on a omnimount cantalever stand. It does swivel enough to see it but it is not a completre 90 degree rotation. Even though we used 6 big lag bolts into the brick fireplace I don't feel 100% free w/it . there is much more force excerted when its pulled away from the wall so it can swivel.

It does the job but it isn't perfect for a complete 90 degree turn

I do not if other brands are better . Omnimount is one of the better ones though. It is an impressive mounting mechanism

You may look at here: Wall Mount adds a greater range of movement to your large flat panel monitor or your flat panel TV. The Wall Mount provides right / left pivot and LCD monitor swivel, placing the monitor 5.25†from the wall. It meets VESA standard mounting patterns of 75 x 75mm, 100 x 100mm (approximately 3.5 x 3.5 inches, 4 x 4 inches). High quality construction ensures long lasting durability. It has the capability to hold up to 6KGs weight. Above all, it is brand new directly from factory!

Do a google search for "bosity" and you'll find the online store selling it.

Wouldn't you (he) want a 180 degree turn?

If the ledge where the plasma will sit is fairly large you could fit a large lazy susan bearing under an oval shaped shelf and set the Plasma on a stand. Depending on the stand design you might be able to drill a large hole near the center of the shelf and route all the cables down to a rack below. You will need to alternate rotating directions.

Here is an example of what I'm talking about.
