    Hi there

    As a result of all the excellent installations I have seen on this forum, I have decided not only to by a Pioneer Plasma but also to mount it into a false recess on a chimney breast.

    Question (possibly silly!!) is - how do you attach it to the wall mount in a recess - is this possible??? or do you build up the wall with stud/plasterboard around the screen (meaning it will be hard to remove at a later date?).

    Any comments?

    Hi Kevtotty

    Just finished mounting my plasma exactly as you described.

    Overall effect is very good, used a standard universal mount for this and can even backlight it if i wanted to.

    Just studded the chimney breast with 4 x 2 and get a decent pasterer to finish off . Bonus of no wires!:D

    Good luck!:smashin:

    Any chance of a photo. Will you not have any cooling problems by the way.

    I have left a suitable margin of 2-3 inches all round for cooling, used firecheck plasterboard and an additional layer of insulating material (the type sold for insulation/soundproofing / or laminate flooring underlay in this case) to minmise the problem. The fire is little used if at all anyway, but I didn't find any problems when lit.

    Just trying to get some pics together, my camera is only 2 Megapixels though

    Looks great!!!! I thought about doing something similar, Is the plasma able to cool sufficiently? do the manufacturer recomend a certain gap?

    Thanks Jpd2!:hiya:

    Fujitsu state 10 cm, I have had no problems with cooling, some other pics are in the plasma for the lads thread.

    I've cleaned up the visible wires recently, glad I went to the trouble, highly recommended :D
