Back a few years ago I decided to build a hanging digital poster frame for my family livingroom theater. That thread is located here.
Also in that thread AVS member Tedd has contributed a huge collection of posters for the frames.
So after moving into a new house and a lengthy full remodel inside came time to build my dedicated theater (still being built).
So on to the in wall digital poster frame. At first the wife and I decided to scrap the idea of the poster all together. First thought was not enough room and needed access to the back of the display. Well after having the theater room demoed for wires and insulation I started to brainstorm. So below is what route I have chosen to take.
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.
