    Is there a way to easily mount a panel on the wall in a corner?

    I'm really keen to get a PWD7 but am concerned that reflections will spoil my viewing and the only place in my living room where reflections will be non-existent is in a corner.

    So, is there such a thing as a corner mount bracket, or maybe a pole mount which could be either ceiling or floor mounted. Someone must have done this in a home environment surely?

    Or am I missing some reason why it is impractical?

    It will definately be impractical if you ever consider Dolby Digital 5.1 :cool:

    Thanks stette, that would probably do the job, although £300! Mind you, if one wants something particular I guess it has to be paid for.

    And Nick, thanks for your advice. As it happens I have a 48" CRTRP in that corner just now with a 5.1 set up and it works well. Sure my front speakers [floorstanders] are further from the screen than most instalations, but I find it gives a good wide stage and the centre sits nicely on top of the telly. However it might not look so good with a plasma there.

    I'm beginning to think that I might just have to put up with reflections and go and mount the plasma on the wall I originally had in mind.

    Blooming decisions. Why can't I be decisive.

    Bang on, seen this in action and they look very good, friend has strange lounge lay out and just swings the arm out and screen sits nearly in the corner.

    He hardly ever swings it back to the wall. LOL

    Why are these swing mounts so expensive? Could you make something that would do the same for a fraction of the price?
