There's a pretty hefty, vertically orientated with color bar, poster library on the drive now. More being added daily too.

These will need to be rotated for usb playback.

Hi everyone. After reading all the posts and doing my own research, I’ve finally decided to go the digital movie poster route for my home theater. I have already ordered the tv, but still need to get a mount. Do I have to get one that’s specifically for vertical/portrait mounting, or would any mount work as long as the width of the mount does not exceed the width of the tv when it’s vertical? I have one in mind (Mounting Dream MD2268-MK), but just wanted to make sure it would work before pulling the trigger. Thanks in advance!

That mount wouldn't be one that I would choose, for this purpose. I'd be aiming for a slim mount, unless you need to mount the hdtv
that far off the wall.

I went for this one, at Wallmart. Cheap, effective, and the horizontal rail is suitable for easy shortening.

I had no idea that they could be that slim. I ended up going with this one (QualGear QG-TM-F-014), since I have an Amazon gift card I can use. Thanks for the help Tedd!

Wrong link tedd.

I just took my tv out of the frame today and threw out the frame. Seeing we moved to a new house I started working on the theater this past week. I will build a new frame for the tv and flush it into the wall outsid my theater. So when I do I will update it here.

But I’m focused on the theater build right now, can’t wait.

Link has been corrected.

I also plan to recess my hdtv and have the mask flush with the wall. Since I will be doing drywall anyways, the current plan is to
simply use J channel bead on the opening for the mask, and to leave a small reveal for air flow. Access to the hdtv will be from the
backside of the wall I install on.

Sounds like what I’m going to do. Mine will be accessed from behind the wall in the theater. I will make one of my fabric panels removable too or hinged. Going to install some small fans to vent from top when screen is on. Now is the time to do it with drywall going to be off in theater for insulation.

Digital poster frame V2

With walls still open I decided to start rebuilding my digital poster frame. I originally was going to make an access panel from behind the tv in the theater but not doing that way now. Instead I’m designing it to be hinged on one side so I can open it from the front. I also ordered and received cooling fan I need to incorporate. Today I made the new frame and trim to match the rest of the house. Tomorrow I will make the outer wall frame, figure out the hinge, and fan for cooling. Below is a picture.

I've thought about using one of those double arm hdtv wall mounts, where you can
the hdtv set forward from the wall.

This unit is good for 88 pounds so it might be an option, if one doesn't want any hinges showing.

I thought about a mount too but between the tv and mount depth it’s too deep for wall cavity.

Ok I figured out how I’m doing it. It’s being done so the front frame is removable to expose the tv, hookups, and bracket. The front frame is sleeved inside and outer wall frame. The wall frame will be mounted in the wall between the studs. Then the tv will be mounted to the vertical brackets. The tv with vertical brackets will slipped into the wall frame and screwed in. The the outer finish frame will slip into the wall frame. Hope everyone understands with pictures.

The finish frame will have thin foam to cushion the frame on the wall and on the face of the tv. The finished frame will be secured by friction and by cabinet door clip latches. Built into the finished frame is notches routed out on lower and upper parts of the frame. This one helps as handles to pull the finished frame off to access the tv and allows for the airflow with fan.

I routed out half thickness of the wall frame in a channel to make a airflow duct. The lines up with the finished frame to serve as intake at bottom and exhaust at the top. I did these on opposite corners to get cross flow. The fan plugs into the USB port and powers on and off with tv. I need to order a usb splitter to use the fan and thumb drive at the same time. Also getting a IR usb repeater so I can control the tv while in wall.

Inside the wall frame I’m going to install a decor outlet to plug in the tv and usb for IR repeater. This outlet will be a power bridge back to my AV rack so it can be protected by my surge protector. See photos below, still working on it but soon will be done.

Here is tonight’s work. Need to make some small adjustments as now the tv is too snug when fitted into the wall. I will sand the finished frame some to slide in. But temporarily put it in the wall and looks awesome.

Looks like it was always there.

Nice snug fit in between those doors. Good thing you got the hdtv in the size you did!

It has just shy of an inch on the theater doorway and my sons room. You know I did a good job when the wife comes over and takes a picture.

Ordered the usb splitter and usb Ir extender, will be here tomorrow. The I can get it finished so I can insulate and drywall theater this weekend. Plus the wife wants the outside hall finished with casing moulding and such. That way only the theater is under construction.

Might start another thread with this poster build to help others. Will still put links in it back to here and your poster collection.

Here's another mounting method I've considered for myself, based on your box frame. Simply float the hdtv frame in an
over-sized drywalled wall recess. Hinges at the bottom, and a strap so the whole frame can hinge forward. A hinge
up top could hook some screws left exposed (with the heads cut off), to lock it in the upright position. A strap at the
top could limit how far forward the frame can hinge out from the wall.

Ventilation would be all the way around the frame, since the set would float off the wall.

That’s a good idea too.

One nice thing about this project, is I often get a look at what's coming down the pike.

Can't wait!


Today's poster grabs, seem to be shifted over to png, versus the usual jpg.
