    About to install a sexy black 505XDE in my flat.

    Ideally, I'd like to lay it into the wall so builder needs to create a void for it to lay in.

    The Pioneer wall mount requires that the plasma's lifted on to the wall bracket so I can't create a flush fitting hole - i need to leave a space so it can be lifted on.

    Question is, just how much space to I need to leave?

    (hope that all makes sense!)

    You need 25mm for most mounts, but it varies from mount to mount. The way round this is to make the hole big enough, then fix a 'frame' of 6mm MDF around it, cut to the exact size of the plasma, about 50mm wide all round. That looks good, and hides the extra size hole. Don't forget you will need ventilation above and below though, the plasma is about 350w, all that heat has to go somewhere, or it will leave your warranty in a sorry state.
