Wall mounting TV to concrete wall?
First, I hope this is the right forum (I did search, but couldn't find one that was specific to set up like in the audio section) - mods, please move to the appropriate section if this is not in the right place (and my apologies if it isn't).
There's the slight possibility that I will be moving my entire Home Audio set up into a different room. Right now, I have my TV (Sony XBR55X900E) wall mounted, and I would like to do that again, but the issue I'm facing is that the only viable wall in the other space is drywall with concrete behind. I'm a novice when it comes to this kind of stuff, so I'm looking for the easiest, cleanest, most neighbour-friendly way (I live in an apartment-turned-condo building from the 70's) to wall mount the TV onto this wall. The other possible SNAFU is its a shared wall with the unit next to us, hence why I would like it to be neighbour-friendly. I get that I can use self-tapping concrete screws, but if there's a way to be able to do it without using a hammer drill (or drilling any holes), I'm all ears.
Option B, I suppose, would be to get a new TV unit that has some kind of float mount, but I sort of prefer the cleaner look of mounting directly onto the wall. It's not out of the question if mounting to concrete is too much of a pain in the butt.
Thanks in advance for all of your tips/advice.
