The TV is locked in ticht to cabinet for travel and is pulled out and tilted when stopped.

I have it wired in to either play the same DVD as living room or the bluray in rear.
Total cost was approx 300 dollars.
Hi Lefaivre, could you please post a couple pictures of your install? I am interested in possibly doing something very similar. Thanks, Glenn

Finished changing out the bedroom tv. Learned Toshiba pulled out of the US market. If you find a Toshiba, it's made by some other company. Ended up with a Samsung Smart TV. After figuring out how to uninstall the original TV the install was a breeze.

Paul, would you please post a pic of the install? Like Phil I am really thinking about doing this because my old eyes have trouble seeing the current smaller TV while laying in the bed. -Glenn

Sorry Glenn, this is the only picture I took. The Allen set screws are accessed by the holes you see drilled under the attaching arms. The window valance is held on by three screws. One left, right and one center top. If you go with Samsung, you'll need to buy four m8 x 35mm machine screws and lock washers, split washers.

The 2012 has two overhead cabinets above dresser. The original fit between the two with room.to spare.

The replacement is.not huge but I think I went from.about 18 to a 28.

The new one fits nicely in front of the face frame with a shelf and blurry with soundboard down below.

Will.input photos the next time I go out to storage.

Ive mounted numerous flat screens and many that are non swivel come with a 12-18" T handle Allen or just a plain 90 degree bend Allen. Harbor freight should have what you need if your trying to get off on the cheap for a tool to remove the bottom set screws.

Neither do any good if you don't take the window valance down. The head of the Allen set screw is below the top surface of the trim piece.
