    Received my Tilting plasma wall Mount from AV-Sales today (thanks Alastair!)

    Now need advice on how to hang it , I live in a 1960's build house and am mounting above the fireplace , its a brick wall with cement and plaster over the top , what i need to know is what "bolts" n' "drillbits" should i use to attach it to the wall .BTW it's a 42 inch Panny 6 Series Plasma. I aint too good when it comes to DIY , should i scrap it and pay someone to do it or is it really straightforward ?
    Any advice much appreciated .
    Thank you .

    I've just mounted my 50" Pioneer to a brick + plaster wall using the AV-Sales mount. I used six 10mm diameter Rawlplug mediumweight coachwork brickwork fixing screws (Rawlplug part number 67-674) and they hold the mount so firmly on the wall that a friend and I were able to both hang off it at the same time, so it easily supports my 50" Pioneer and will have no problem at all holding your 42" Panasonic.

    The screws come with the appropriate wall plugs, so all you'll need in addition to that is a 10mm drill bit and a hammer action drill.

    Fixing the mount to the wall is a very easy task, but you'll want a friend there to hold the spirit level etc. to help you get the mount in the right place and level, and of course to help you lift the panel up onto the mount when it's securely screwed to the wall!

    Good luck :)
