    Any suggestions for a 50GT30? I want to make sure I get one that leaves enough room for the HDMI cable snake along the back, since I'll probably get a 90 degree one to avoid it sticking out visibly at the side (thanks to the design!).

    Anyone? Just want something solid that's easy to mount/dis-mount in safety!

    Hi

    This TV has Panasonics own 400 x 300 fixing on the rear so you need a universal bracket. Most universal brackets up to the size of the TV should work ok.

    You can't go any slimmer than 21mm due to the lump on the rear/bottom of the TV. Also, as you say, you need room for the connectors to exit.

    Here's a couple of suggestions from us depending on whether you want flat or tilt;

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks Graham - a couple of questions:

    So to be clear, Model No. MF-3252TB looks like it can be adjusted for any tilt along it's arc of movement. Is that correct and just a matter of tightening up the tilt locking bolts, or does it "click" from position to position in set steps?

    Also, it says 60mm clearance when vertical. That's about the depth of the TX-P50GT30B at the bottom. Does that mean it would be touching the wall/rails already? Sounds like it wouldn't angle down if so?

    Can anyone suggest a sufficient amount of clearance for the connectors on the back of a GT30?

    Tilt - correct, it's just a case of loosening the bolts, adjusting the tilt and tightening the bolts again. There's not pre-determined 'click' or positioning.

    The lump on the bottom is 21mm so this would leave 39mm to facilitate the tilt. You can also use the spacers on the kit with the bracket to give yourself more depth to get the maximum tilt out of the bracket.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards
    Graham

    Is the 21mm you refer to the amount the bottom of the GT30 is proud of the rear mounting points then? (slightly confused!) ...

    Hi

    Yes, that's correct. If you used a mount less than 21mm then the lump would hit the wall before the bracket.
