It seems so obvious.
But making your television part of the framework of your house doesn't sound good.
Used to be a big thing in the 80's. All the rich people had all thier electronic stuff integrated, stereo, TV, speakers...
My aunt's house has a room off the side of a bedroom closet where the tv passes thorugh the wall. Not a bad setup to hide the tv, just hope you never get one of a different size.
Remember seeing this in an email called Mexican Flatscreen TV .
I have the next size RCA up from that with more plugs on the back at home . Ain't no plasma or lcd , but it was decently priced with my income in mind , has HDTV already on board , and a great picture for a rear projector
Or at least smaller.
Ok, call me a hillbilly but I think if it was actually done properly that would be cool as hell.
It would be, nothing wrong with doing a built in. Many interior walls are non load bering anyways so its no biggy, even if they are its not hard to frame around it.
Exactly, I took an architecture class in high school, and it could have easily been implemented. Not as easy as hanging a plasma on the wall of course, but not as expensive and doesn't wear out after a few years either.
There are a few variables but nothing hard to work out. Obviously span, load, type of framing is all gonna make a differance. Its above the average do it yourselfer but still not very complicated.
What i just noticed too, thaat door is gonna make some nice impressions in that tv, pretty fast im betting too
Cooling is a big one if its in its own little room. My aunt's had a room fan behind the tv on a light switch
I daydream from time to time and design my dream house. One portion of it is a home theater(like really theater atmosphere) in the basement. And it would have a small room behind the TV for all the A/V equipment and wiring. Would make for a nice clean install that is very easy to work on if need be. As it is now, our home theater system is very trick if I do say so myself, but whenever something goes wrong, tracking down an issue is a pain the butt.
