Re: wall sized TV, on a sailboat

If you're going to run everything from your PC like the home setup you showed, might I recommend the following PC case, which has the added benefit of positive buoyancy.

The front edge of the TV is 2 7/8 inches from the bulkhead, exactly matching the Vizio speaker bar. We can sit comfortably in the salon seat without touching the back of our head on the TV.
1" + 10MM = 1.5" very cool, TY.

Re: wall sized TV, on a sailboat

Just to throw in a bit of sideways thought.......Since a lot of folks use their TV's just for movies....you could look at getting a projector......Just run it through your computer...also you can by a tv tuner and run it thru the computer and output thru the projector........A good quality projector can have an image as large as 8 feet across....good for those windless nights when you put up your sail and use it as the screen....or on the off days...going below and voila 40" Projectors are easy to stow, do not need a permanent wiring or fixtures and of course do not have the need for a dedicated space.

Re: wall sized TV, on a sailboat

We have a massive "freedom VS. Australia" photo on the wall now, so we will not lose anything.
A projector is a fun idea, albeit impractical. you know they must be a distance from the screen, and they are LOUD!!!!

Re: wall sized TV, on a sailboat

What UnionPacific says is somewhat true. They make mini projectors that are designed for business people and their presentations. They require a much short distance between projector and screen. Noise ah yes....they bulbs get extremely hot and fans are important less you burn out these bulbs. But like I said, it is a sideways thought....In dedicated home theaters, projectors have always been the way to go. Check Newegg or other sites for these projectors. This is not an endorsement for Newegg or any other site....

No pop-up, those are for stinkpotters and people that hire crew to sail their boats.

I've found several 22" sets, I just can't tell if the rear mounting is what I want. I do not want a frame, i just want to screw it directly to the wall.

From most seats in our salon, one sits less than 6 feet from the set. At most, one would be 10 feet, in a single seat. Seriously, how much bigger of a set would one want or need. The 22" will fit its location perfectly too.

Re: wall sized TV, on a sailboat

A week ago my Wife says, "Honey, I have an idea for an improvement to the boat."

Me "Gulp!"

Her "Let's cut out out the coach house walls and put in some big windows!"

Me "why don't we get a big screen TV instead, then I'll mount a wireless CCTV camera so you can have a view which ever way you like."

Wife "OK"

Me "Whew!"

No I gotta figure out how to do it.

Advice?

Re: wall sized TV, on a sailboat

No reason to have to use your laptop hooked up to your TV. WD makes a media player, storage can be done on a dedicated hard drive. We use the media player and a 1 terrabyte hard drive for movies, pictures etc. Cuts way down on power usage. We also loan out the hard drive to other cruisers and swap movies.
