I have a VT50 on the way from Pauls, and would like to get the wall mount installed correctly, prior to the TV being delivered.

I can't seem to find any information on where the bolt holes on the back of the TV are located on this model. This would tell me how high on the wall to put the wall mount. I asked a guy at Pauls, and his answer to all this was "they are on the bottom." Not quite the answer I was looking for, in terms of being precise.

I have just under 8' ceilings in that room, and a 36'' tv stand, as well as leaving room somewhere on the stand or wall for a Infinity Primus center speaker http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0044D1788/ref=oh_details_o00_s05_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I know the tv is approx 5' wide and 3' tall, so a 3' tall tv and a 3' tall tv stand, and a 10'' tall speaker, doesn't leave a ton of room for error, or just as bad the mount is too high, and the ceiling interferes.


Can anyone point me to some accurate dimension numbers, so I know where to locate the wall mount?

(this way maybe I can convince the delivery guys to help me put the tv on the mount, vs having to do it by myself.

See the VT50 Quick Start Guide linked in the 2nd post of the 2012 Lineup Thread - it has detailed schematics. Just be sure you're looking at the 65" diagram, not the 55" or 60" one:

I would recommend waiting until the display arrives. Maybe offer the guys $30 or $40 a piece to help you mount the set. It would be a shame to install the mount first and find out you were off.

It doesn't take much more than 10-15 minutes in install the mount and hang the display. Have the guys hold the set up so you can gauge the approximate location, then install your wall plate in the correct location, install the rails on the back of the set, hook up your cables and your good to go.

Really, you're only having the guys hold up the set to gauge your position for the wall mount and then having them put it on the wall mount once the rails are on.

Or if not, don't you have a nearby friend that can help mount the set?

The delivery service Paul's uses probably won't wait for all that, and may even be in a time crunch and not have the time to stick around even with the offer of that huge tip.

Heck, for five bucks you can enlist the help of a 12 year old neighbor kid to help lift the TV onto the wall bracket, there no need to spend more for an adult to help wink.gif

Thanks Randy,

Not precise measurements, but I think with a margin of error of 2-3 inches, I can get this figured out now.

Thanks again,
Eric
