    Hi everyone
    I have a 17" lcd tv in my bedroom sat on top of a empty chest. I would really like to be able to electrically retract the screen into the chest when not in use. Any suggestions on a mechanisim to do this? ideally that i could rig to a X10 controller to use ny remote :D

    I've done a quick bit of research into these things (mainly with a larger screen in mind), and found that cabinets with plasma lifts are highly desireable and highly expensive.
    I have found one site with DIY info, and I'd be really interested to know if anyone else has tried anything similar.

    If you could get an indication of prices I'd appreciate it - currently building an extension (not dedicated home cinema unfortunately, and I'd like to get something like this to save putting a flat screen on the wall. I think model 421.69.400 might be better as it will lift higher - will obviously need to lift the full height of the screen.

    Thanks,

    Jon.
