Just wanted to share with you the latest details regarding my 50" Insignia Movie Poster build which of course is going to utilize Meyer64's Movie Poster App plus his
Movie Poster Motion Sensor to to it on and off when it senses movement (I typed this last word as moviement
before I corrected it. Lol!).

In this post:
1. Added air ventilation holes in the TV Mount support frame because the TV is going to get hot behind the TV since it will be completely enclosed inside a wall.
(I almost went with taking out all of the 2 x 4 upright Mount supports except for the very left and very right 2 x 4s in order to allow more space/air to surround the Insignia TV but I chose to just drill holes).
2. Added "side supports" for the drywall and to hold the "MDF Supports".
3. Added "MDF Supports" which will hold the "MDF Molding up around the TV with Velcro (I wanted to make the "Molding" around the TV removable in case I needed to remove the TV and/or get behind the TV). The MDF molding will cover the line where the drywall meets the TV. I guess I could have purchased pre-designed/pre-built molding from a local molding manufacturer but I wanted a more "seemless" and "flat" molding around the TV. If this MDF Molding idea does not work out, I will move forward with purchasing a simple molding design.
4. Installed the electrical outlet that will power the Movie Poster TV, speakers, and the computer that will run the Meyer64's Movie Poster app.
First I took out the part of the TV Mount that goes onto the TV itself and I installed it.
Then I unboxed the TV. Here is the TV before it is unveiled in all of its 50" glory.
Do you remember that "sample frame" I made to see what the size of the TV would be to figure out if the TV will fit in the hallway?
I finally was able to test and see if I made the right size. It turns out that I made it the exact dimensions of the TV.
The TV Mount brackets were put on the TV with no problems:
Here is the Movie Poster TV hanging in its new home for the first time.
