Mounting of TV LCD

Looking for suggestions on what other people have done to install a LCD TV, about 19-23", in a model 233 Surveyor. Have you mounted to the wall above the table or possibly to the end of the cabinet by the table?

I've got a 261 model and was thinking about putting a door on the cabinet above the table where a tube TV is supposed to go with a piano hinge and mount an LCD to that so I can use the space behind it for the sat box, dvd player, and storage.

Mounting a tv on a door with very light hinges could be problematic. Ensure there is enough "bite" into wherever the hinge will be to really hold well. Maybe an AL backer plate. If you use an LED vice and LCD, the LED will be pounds lighter, lots thinner, better pic, use fewer amps and be cooler.

That's why I specified piano hinge, the door would be about 15" tall and the piano hinge would spread the weight of a 15ish # tv pretty evenly with 3/4" screws.
