You were asking about wall mounting your set. In my case, I mounted my set to the wall using a "Sanus" mounting system. It came with complete instructions and I can report the quality of the product produced by Sanus was excellent. I had little or no problem with the mount and would recommend to anyone considering this type of mounting. I would comment that my wall mount was installed on an exterior CMU wall with furred drywall on the interior. I point this out because that situation can cause some detail concerns as it did in my case. I see that you are planning to mount the 55HX929 set on the wall. I would imagine this should work even better than mine. In my case, I did not get a chance to review the latest installation specifications from Sony before I received my set. This Sanus mount provides a space of 1.5" behind the set. I don't think I would use anything less than that for ease of routing the various cables. Unfortunately, as I mentioned, my set came (65HX929), and much to my surprise, many of the cables plugged into the back of the TV at 90 degrees. I was originally looking at the specs for the 55 similar to your set. The 55 plugs in from underneath, and not perpendicular to the set. This makes a "HUGE" difference when mounting to an exterior wall. I don't think that will be a concern for your situation. Good luck.
I was reading some of the other post talking about power usage difference between the Plasma and the LED Sony. I'm not sure I know what the technical specs say regarding the difference, but I can report after my set has been on for hours, it seems barely warm. I don't think you will find that to be the case with a Plasma set. YMMV :-)
