    Hi, I have just bought my first home and want to fit my 434 plasma on the wall and also hide the wiring in the wall before it gets plastered.

    Does anyone know of a installer in the west sussex area and also a good hifi shop??

    Thanks
    David

    southgate,i know it well,I've set up a few tv's there,near the pub(cant remember
    the name).cant you wall mount the tv yourself,what are your walls made of? when you get it done make sure you put a few more leads then you need at the moment.I've lost count of the amount of people i have seen that find out when its to late that they need some lead or other or see if you can put a tube/large
    trunking in the wall so feeding leads in later will be much easier.

    Yes mate, Brighton Road 2 seconds from the Pub.

    My Plasma only has 2 leads as it has a separate box to drive it.

    My walls are plaster board cavity walls,so its not going to be easy. Have to make sure that the bracket gets screwed into the wood and not into the plaster board.

    Do you do this for a living??

    Are you in Crawley??

    i used to do it for a living,i worked for sevenoaks as a custom installer,dont do it any more (only for friends of friends).i would offer my help but i no longer have insurance.so a big no no if things go wrong.i can only offer my help in my advice.
    so if you do decide to give it a go and have any questions feel free to ask.
    if you read other posts on here some people will say that its ok to mount a tv on plaster board,like you have said only do this if you can get as many fixings as you can into the batons.

    The wall mount is on it's way from Fleebay, can't plaster yet till I sort out some extra plug sockets in the living room.

    I have nothing as yet planned for the weekend.

    Using the proper fixings its fine to mount direct onto plaster board without using the batons. Mounting to batons is nice but not essential. Plaster board cavity is the easiest surface to mount to and hide cables.

    Yes mate, Brighton Road 2 seconds from the Pub.

    Sounds like THE HALF MOON in Southgate.
    I used to live near there, 1988 - 1999.

    The Downsman in Southgate parade, is more your pipe and slippers kind of pub, friendly and plenty of seating, with a public bar and saloon.

    I lived not far from there in Forester rd from 1969, to 1988.

    There was a TV shop in nearby Tilgate parade, next to Stanley Balls off licence.
    There's a rowdy pub there, it used to called The Grass Hopper, then in the 90s it became Hoppers.

    Crawley like anywhere has nice areas and not so nice areas. Southgate is fine, and near the Town centre.

    I moved across to Bristol in 1999.

    :hiya:
