    Has anyone mounted a plasma flat onto the ceiling over the bed?
    I've been asked to do this,anyone done it?
    viewing angle seems a bit odd to me. any horizontal watchers out there?:

    I've been asked to install it by a client, not my wife..

    mind you there's a thought, footie & tottie together. Time management to the max.

    I was concerned with viewing angle & some plasma screens alter their view from horizontal to vertical dependant on their position.
    poss overheating etc.

    Plamsa screens are ventilated assuming that they are wall mounted. Flat ceiling mounting may cause overheating (of the plasma silly).

    this is what Alan Partridge would have liked in his Motel room, to watch the "Lady Boys" video (except he also had the finger bandage on).

    The philips ad has a lot to answer for, with plasmas fitted on every place imaginable. The engineers who mounted it on the ceiling don't use this forum, but the lads who watched the advert for the tasty crumpet certainly do!
    Looks like I'm a pioneer (No pun intended) which this install. If it blows up the display I'll post the debris report on forum.

    :eek:

    Only thing I can add is that the Pioneer manual has strict instructions never to trasport the panel horizontally, which may of course just be to help protect the glass from stress.

    Also the installtion guid does not have any examples of horizontal mounting, but that is hardly surprising really :)

    See this months HCC page 15 quick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It says never to tip or tilt a plasma panel horizontally as this can lead to cell wall rupture. Hope this is of some help.

    Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question but.....

    If that's true, then how come I can angle the active matrix screen on my notebook through 180 degrees? Is it because it's smaller? Or is it because it's been "reinforced" for this purpose? Or is it because it's not the same as these big plasma screens?

    Cheers, yes mine is TFT - didn't realise it was different technology. Shame really, cos the picture on this is cracking when watching DVDs - would love a 32" version :)

    Sharp are currently selling a 30" TFT TV, with larger models still to come.

    http://www.sharp-usa.com/products/ModelLanding/0,1058,817,00.html

    Personally having seen one I was not impressed with the image quality, but that could just have been a bad set-up.

    Plasma is an entirely different technology, TFT is just a name for one type of LCD display also sometimes referred to as an Active Matrix LCD.

    Sex on the ceiling, kin'ky!!

    Have you seen the price of the big Sharp etc. TFT's, MORE than palsma! I salivate every time I see The Bone Collector/Hannibal, what with Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman having all those screens over their bed.

    Horny Dragon,
    Client still sitting on the bedpost pontificating.

    If your missus fancies it hanging from the ceiling, may I suggest a course in climbing knots & roping tecniques, & as for the bathroom....

    Remember real men never watch TV in bed,
