I found I have a need to still have my standard Plasma TV in my theater room...you cannot play the Wii or do exercise tapes in my room because you block the projector. Yeah, I should have realize that from the get go...but lessons learned.
So...on that note, I started looking into a myriad of ways to put the TV in the room yet also have it NOT in the way. Most have been so horribly expensive I gave up on them.
Then I found this thread:http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1113742
Big...you will see your own post in that thread with a great idea. It is this:
The TV weighs about 100 pounds, but the slider can hold 200 pound doors...so I am good. The weight gets spread along the path as well. I would buy (1) 6 foot long track, (4) rollers, and (2) track stops...$77 before shipping and such. I already own screws to affix it to the ceiling, and paint to make it black.
Paranoia is hitting a little...do you all think the next higher level of track would be needed? It can hold doors up to 400 pounds. I am just worried about concentrating the weight into a smaller area than the roller guides expect...

Using a 6 foot guide length, two rollers, and two stops, it comes to $133..which is around double the price of the other. Hmmm...after looking at the multi-fold page, it appears each multi fold door should only be 75 pounds, but that three on each side of the track can all be bunched up into a very small area, which is only slightly bigger than the width of the TV mount top. The lower level one can do 50 pounds in the same area. My TV is slightly under 100 pounds...so the smaller should be still be good just close to the limit.
I was thinking of using this mount, it tilts and rotates 360 degrees:http://www.amazon.com/VideoSecu-Adju.../ref=pd_cp_e_0
What do you all think? Am I missing anything other than power and HDMI cable?
