    Hi Darren,

    I would try one of the following

    1 If wall is a false / stud wall, cut out plaster board isin the desired location adapt stud work i.e. make a frame for the new opening and recover studs creating a gap, fixing to new location ??? possible to use a stand to stand screen in new gap??
    2 if wall is real /brick, find out if it is a supporting / load bearing wall, if so seek proper advice, if not cut out gap add lentle and place in screen??
    3 if real wall and you dont want the fuss and mess of cutting out gap, build up a false /stud wall in front of real wall, leaving gap for screen and allowing a soild fixing onto real wall. this will give the appearanc eof a flush screen and may allow you to sink in (the same way) the speakers for the screen?

    Sorry descriptions are not very good but hopefully you get the jist?

    Cheers

    Last one may be a lot of work however will allow all cables to the screen to be hid as well, down side is you would loose more space in room?
