    Would this wall bracket

    http://www.screwfix.com/app/sfd/cat/pro.jsp?ts=72496&id=39988

    with either a wooden or glass shelf attached, be suitable for an HS50?

    Pssible shelf - http://www.diy.com/diy/jsp/bq/produ...649&entryFlag=false&PRODID=133994&paintCatId=

    I'd be mounting this on hollow plasterboard wall using plastic toggles/rawlplugs, something like these

    http://www.screwfix.com/app/sfd/cat/pro.jsp;jsessionid=JB21AZENIQNW3CJO2C1SIIQ?ts=72375&id=38258

    Also can anyone tell me the width and depth dimensions which the HS50's actual 'feet' take up... if you see what I mean... ?

    Thanks.

    Hi, I have my HS50 sitting on a shelf mounted to a plasterboard wall. I am using silver effect SPUR shelf brackets and supports from B&Q with a 400mm deep shelving board. The front of the pj is level with the shelf front and this leaves about 50mm at the rear for cabling (although it could be reduced to 30mm if required). The front feet are set back about 80mm from the front of the unit - so if i swashed it up against the wall the shelf depth could have been about 300mm. Hope this helps. I have attached a picture - if it works.
    Cheers, Jason.

    Also using bog standard shelves from DIY places, screwed to plasterboard wall. Works perfectly. I would recommend a minimum depth of 33cm for your shelf

    xaser - your setup looks nice, but the amount of space available around the dvd player and amp can't be good for them. I see no vents on side of the amp, so dvd player must be taking most of the heat.

    zoolap - thanks - true there are no vents on the sides of the amp, but the dvd player is quite short and only blocks a few slots. i did worry about over heating but after 4 hours solid use it is only warm - not hot. the amp is a digital amp which uses switched current instead of constant current like a linear amp (a bit like the difference between switch mode power supplies and linear power supplies, the linear supply is less efficient and turns more electricity to heat because the transistors are on all of the time, where as switched mode is fully on or fully off). if there are problems i can spread things out a bit more - it is quite flexible and child friendly ie. they can't touch it!! cheers, jason.

    MAD ANDY - nice work!

    I need to calculate the ideal height now and have a question for you HS50 owners...

    Is the centre of the projected image in line with the centre of the lens, when using zero lens shift? I'd like to minimise any distortion due to manipulation as much as possible.

    ...ignore me, just my weird sense of humour

    I imagined your drop down shelf to be a picture frame when in the upright position

    kinda thought it would have been funny if the picture was of your PJ....

    bit like when I went to a friends house and beside the fireplace was a picture of the fireplace...

    obviously not that funny... :suicide:

    ...PJ :)

    I got a very nice Vogel's wall mount for my projector, it came free when I bought the projector and had literally just come out on reflection it was ideal for my situation - cost new is £130.
