TV size for SV 294

I ran off from the hunting lease today and forgot to measure for the TV. What size flat screen are you using? Need to buy one before the wife changes her mind....

We have a 26" in our 280 and it barely fits. I wouldn't think you could go with any bigger than that.

It depends which entertainment center you have. I have a 32 inch in mine and I think I could have got a 37 in there. The only problem is the heat the thing puts off, it gets a bit toasty in the bedroom with the doors closed!

What I did was bought a wall mount for a flat screen TV. I also bought a piece of metal about 1 1/2" wide that has holes every inch. I am sure it is called something I just do not know what. Anyway I took the mirror off, to my suprise it was not glued just the corner mounts. I drilled through the cabinet and put the metal piece on the mirror side of the cabinet to displace the weight acrossed the entire cabinet, using pan head bolts on the mirror side with lock washer and nuts coming through the TV side. I then fastened the wall mount onto it. I had to buy longer screws for the mirror mount. Once everything was in place I put the mirror back on and nervously tightened the screws on the mount expecting the mirror to shatter. If it did I was not terribly worried I could have replaced it with a preframed mirror, that was the least of my worries. I got both the TV and wall mount from Walmart the mount is only about 6 inches wide and 6 inches tall. It cost about $ 50.00 and the metal strips I got at Home Depot for like $ 5.00, I did it all while on vacation in a couple hours. When I travel I spin it into the bedroom and put a towel over the screen and secure the bedroom doors in the open position. I have traveled a couple thousand miles since and never have I had a problem.
