    Hello folks. :hiya:

    I've taken the plunge and bought a Hitachi 42PD5300 from John Lewis (gotta love that 5yr Guarantee). Anyway I was intending on wall mounting this on my chimney breast. There is no longer a fire place there so heat should not be an issue, is there anything else I should watch out for.

    Thanks

    Yelpir.

    I have just bought the same mount - cost £110 delivered. Think that was quite a good deal. let me know if you want their details.

    As long as the brickwork is ok - you shouldnt have a problem

    Hey if the fireplace is no longer used how about this for an idea:

    You could drill a hole an inch or two wide through the wall into the chimney so that you can pass all the wires for the plasma through there down to the connections below without them being visible. How cool would that look?!!

    That is the intention actually, there is already an air vent low down dehind the new cabinet that will house the Tuner Box/Sky +/Pinoneer DVD. I have also today sourced the Hitachi PWT-001 Bracket from Electrical Discount UK
    http://www.electricaldiscountuk.co.uk/itfx_product_details.php?pid=1287
    £99 Delivered seems a fairly good prices as a lot of places are out of stock.

    I've also ordered a couple of the Scarts listed on the special offers forum.

    Yeah I was a bit shocked, these things seem to be in short supply at the moment, no one else I tried had them in stock.

    I thought that I did well getting one for £110 - ho-hum!

    Sounds like it'll be a nice install.

    I am having a bit of difficulty getting the picture the way that I want it - some skin tones look quite plasticky. Let me know if you have any luck with different settings

    TBH I've no idea how the settigns are going to be, I say a thread on here by Duncan?? with his settings listed so I thought I might use those as a starting point.

    Edit - just noticed you've already been involved in that thread and still no joy. If I find a solution on mine I'll post it up.
