    Outdoor TV / Articulating Mount

    It was difficult to decide on the perfect spot and mount; I wanted viewing from 3 angles and then retract/fold when not in use. Protecting from weather just added to the problem; to cover/not to cover is the question. I also refused to spend more than a total of $400; DIY-mount & cable run (was not fun) $80 for the mount (Frys-Barkan), $160 for TV (46" Panasonic Viera plasma from CL), $30 for electrical and cable. It's not perfect but a happy medium and viewable from hot-tub, bar, fireplace and the covered patio sitting area.

    Looks good.
    I'm in the process of doing something similar. Well, sorta in the process. Whenever I get around to finishing it up, but as long as I'm finished by Spring, I will be happy.

    Gonna mount a 32" under my covered patio, and another 48" on the back of my house so it'seasily watchable from pool side.

    Looks good. I have the spot chosen but haven't done anything yet. We have direct TV but it's wired, son-in-law just got the wireless version and had his TV mounted and was watching football from his pool the first weekend they moved in. I have to call and see what they charge to switch it ours to wireless.

    I was thinking of going with two TV's as well! We hosted a Texans party yesterday and exactly what I feared happened-3 people bumped their heads!

    Thank you! Our neighbors went the wireless route; it's nice to be able to store in the house.

    Looks good man. I heard U-verse has a wireless box so all you would need to get a signal would be a power cord. I hope to put something up by next swimming season.
