Panasonic 42PX60 wall install

Hello all,
home cinema setup is not quite up to the standards displayed in this forum but give it time.

Purchased Panasonic 42PX60 from Panasonic Direct in Paisley for £1300. Inc bracket (more on that later), delivery and 5 year panny warranty.

Planning stages:

First cut is the deepest; three co-ax for Sky feed 1 & 2 and Upstairs TV feed. Cat5 for XBOX 360 link to router:

Futureproofing, Running 21 pin Scart, S-Video, Component, HDMI, VGA and Phono L & R:

Here is the bracket, I was supposed to get a Panasonic one as part of the deal but as some may be aware, there is a UK shortage at the moment, so to avoid waiting till after XMAS opted for universal one:

Top cable exit:

Bracket mounting, I am lucky enough to have my garage behind the wall that I'm mounting on so a friend came up with the idea of using lengths of 10mm threaded rod and going right through:

Okay, so a bit messy at the moment, but some wide trunking and a hacksaw will sort this little lot out:

Spot on!:

Decided on using 2 gang brushed faceplates for cable exits:

Fully operational:

Will hopefully be replacing the Sony DAVS500 sometime next year for a switching AV amp when funds allow but it is a start.
Screen is amazing looking forward to life with it. :D

#UPDATE# Sept07
The garage has been converted to a study/playroom so I will have to get some AV toys in there soon.
#UPDATE# Jan 08
I've just purchased an Onkyo 605 and will be mating it to Canton Movie series speakers.
Pictures to follow.

I had some guy with a hang over wandering around like a fart in a trance but other than that all my own work. lol :D

P.S. For those who don't get this, it was Badkarma who gave me a hand.

That looks spot on mate, very professional. How do you rate the tv? That's the model I've been looking at, just wish they did it in black rather than silver.

Just a few questions about mounting and connecting up the Panny. My setup is going to be near identical to yours, but I wondered how you actually mounted the panel and connected the leads ?

Was it a 2 / 3 man job holding the TV while someone connects everything or can you put the panel on the wall then hook it up ? I cant see how, as HDMI sockets come out horizontally at the back so didn't think there would be enough room to manouver.

Any advice appreciated
