So my question is does anyone know if sony will make a plate or has one that will adapt it over in case i run into this in the future?
I can't believe they would do something so stupid!
Hi Eric or anyone else on this subject...
I am nervous about buying a standard swivel wall mount for the KDL50W800B TV because of compatibility issues.
I bought the TV from PC Richard and the one they want to sell me is $260 which is BS. (they listed generation and bello as the brands)
After lengthy conversations with sony they said they carry one for $280 also total BS (they also had very little idea what was flying and made me regret purchasing a SONY TV)
If you could let me know ASAP whether i need to buy the $$$ mounts mentioned above or I can buy one from amazon that claims to be universal.

I ordered the wall mount adaptor listed above. Will it work for mounting the TV onto a TV stand or do I have to order an additional wall mount? My husband and I plan to install this ourselves because the included stand proved to be so wobbly and unstable.
Here is the 448584401 vesa adapter mounted. Notice that it is attached to the TV by the screws on the BOTTOM and I don't see any other way to attach it. I'd feel better if the screws were at the top but perhaps because the bulk of the weight is appears to be in the bottom half, there won't be an issue attaching it to an arm.
My husband and I used the adapter to mount the television onto a television stand. It's not fancy, but it seems to work fine.Note that doing this does block off the LAN in connection, so if we were going to use it we'd have had to put the cord in before mounting these rails. I love the picture on this tv, but Sony's decision to use this weird mounting design is stupid.
I zip tied it to the top of the vesa adapter. There's plenty of room and I suppose you could velcro it instead of zip ties. I also fabricated a sound bar mount using some metal strips that came with the Sanus mount. Very happy with the result.
Great idea - do you have a pic of how it looks? Keen to see how it sits on the wall (ie how far out it is off the wall)
Hows the heat from the power brick? You wouldn't happen to have a pic also would you?
I think im sold on this TV!
I just bought a 50w800b and am having trouble mounting to wall with full motion mount.
If I use the two two screws on the adapter, how do I use the bottom 2 screws (just above the component inputs)? Do I need a spacer for the top two holes?
Can you please send me a picture?
Thank you so much!
Will this work with this set or should I seek out something that is VESA-compliant?
Sorry for the late reply, I've been off the grid for a couple of weeks (new baby). Here's a picture of a side view of my TV mounted. There's absolutely no heat from the power supply. If you think of it this way, if they designed the TV thicker the power supply would have been in the TV anyways.
