    I've had my 42" Panasonic PF20 mounted in my lounge via a bracket supplied by an AV fitting company who have now gone bust :(

    Over the weekend I have bought a Samsung 46" ES8000 and have fitted it using the same bracket.

    All is ok but it does look a tad low compared to how my PF20 looked, which was dead centre to my surround speakers - see here for pic

    http://www.avforums.com/forums/13663670-post284.html

    Now, I'm useless with DIY, hence me paying someone to fit it, but is it sitting low because the mount I have is for up to 42"? I have got it mounted in the top hole so it is as high as this mount is going to get.

    Is it just a simple case of getting a new mount for a larger TV and using the display bit (saves me doing the wall plate again)? Will there be more adjustment?

    Cheers, and I hope the above makes sense!

    Hi

    The TV has changed height because of the position of the fixings on the rear of the TV. The fixing points on the TV must have been lower on the Panny than on the Samsung, they're not necessarily always in the centre. Your only realistic option is to move the bracket higher up the wall. Do you know anyone who's reasonably ok at DIY? It's not a tricky job as long as you have all the tools....

    Regards
    Graham

    that's a question better suited to the TV forum instead of taking this thread off topic.

    Hey, long time no speak!!

    Picture quality is superb on the Samsung, almost surreal sometimes, my wife keeps going on about it which she never does regarding these things usually!

    The PF20 was very good but the Samsung is better, plus all the other features it has really make it one if the best you can get at the moment.

    I'm over the moon with it :)
