I'm not sure you should do anything to the wall. It would distract from the entertainment on the TV. What I think would look cool is adding bias lighting behind the screen, which you could match the colors of your furniture/rug/whatever.

If you want non-adaptive bias lighting (doesn't change with what's on the screen), I'd recommend [Loominoodle] (

For adaptive bias lighting, it's a little more complicated. If the television doesn't come with it natively, you have to run it through some sort of hardware to figure out what's going to show on screen and react to it. The only one I know worth trying is Lightpack.

u/jezterr · 15 pointsr/hometheater

Just wanted to give a big thanks to all the helpful people here who are so willing to share their knowledge, and to u/ZeosPantera for his handy guides.

This was the very first project I wanted to complete in our new house, and considering the delays due to missing/wrong pieces for the furniture, my reluctance to punch holes in the walls in our new place, and so on, it was a bit of a pain to take on. My main goals were to keep it simple, modern, and clean, and I think I managed it well enough.

It's a basic setup, and I know there are some taboo things people will point out (e.g. speakers too close to the corners/walls, non O2-free copper-clad wire, etc), but the important thing is that I'm happy with it. I don't plan on changing much for years to come (unless you guys end up pointing out something that ends up bothering the crap out of me). It looks and sounds great - even the wife loves it, despite her initial skepticism when I first told her my plan (probably the most important thing).

So many thanks to everyone in this subreddit for being awesome, and let me know what you guys think.

As requested, here are the components.

Can you mount it to the wall? From a functional perspective I think where the racquet is on one of these arm brackets. You could keep the stand underneath of it as a media console

There are absolutely no triple 30" monitor stands or mounts out there. I could only find a 27"x3 stand.

In the end I used for single screen tv mounts. Gives greater flexibility. Hard to apply on a drywall(Gyprock), but i was lucky i have a pure cement wall.

I used 3 of these:VideoSecu ML531BE

Dirt cheap, but didn't ship to UAE. Shipped to one of those forwarding warehouses. 3*25=$75. Great! Shipping forwarder charges me $275 shipping because of weight :(

u/pc_4_life · 4 pointsr/battlestations

I got two of Luminoodle Color Bias Lighting with a male to female usb on/off switch.

u/PetiePal · 4 pointsr/hometheater

I mean honestly it's not that expensive. There are deals on bias lighting on Gizmodo all the time for like 10-15 bucks for a USB strip. Unless you go down the Aquos or more expensive route that color changes to match stuff on screen which you don't really gain any benefit from.

With Ikea even selling cheaper sets now it's not hard at all.

Take a look $12 on sale on Amazon right now. Comes with a remote too.

If it works with Logitech Harmony stuff even better it can be auto on/off etc.

Edit: The brand I picked up in the past was Luminoodle

u/punkdthrice · 4 pointsr/4kTV

This is the one I have.

Keep in mind it's attached right across the middle behind the screen unlike some others which are attached around by the edges of the screen. It comes with a remote and plugs into a USB port behind the TV. For $10 bucks you can't go wrong . (You may need two strips for 65" or get this

I've got this behind my ultrawide, and a similar one behind my portrait monitor. I have a generic amazon LED strip behind and under the desk. And then there's this lightbulb in this lamp behind my left speaker. In my PC I've got HD120 fans and the Corsair lighting node pro.

Have you considered buying a VESA TV stand? It connects to the TV like a wall mount, but it is a stand instead. That way, you can convert the stand of any TV to a smaller footprint. For example:

u/umdivx · 3 pointsr/hometheater

Don't shove a center channel or L/R speakers into the cabinet.

For the L/R speakers, get stands, those will just on the floor on either side of the cabinet.

For the center channel, get this TV brack

It'll raise up your TV enough to place the center channel below the TV.

u/-_galaxy_- · 2 pointsr/cade

Absolutely. You can configure certain games (Pac-man, digdug, etc) to automatically start in portrait mode.

Here's my mount, works great and a bit cheaper than the one you listed (also comes with a free HDMI cable and a level) :

This mount has been on two different walls both with great results, but it's not super low profile. It has an arm that lets you bring it out from the wall a bit.

Anyway, here's some pictures of my pedestal setup (I dismantled it recently ) :

u/svirbt · 2 pointsr/hometheater

Well the problem right now is that most tvs people will recommend are going to be hard to find because they have since mostly discontinued last model year and are trying to sell out of them before this model year comes out which is usually between March and June. So as far as getting a good deal, now is the time just ready yourself for potential disappointment if you cant find the one you are looking for.

Getting to my recommendation. With the windows there and if there are no windows behind you, go for a nice plasma and mount it on that wall with an articulating wall mount. Just be sure that the mounting pattern on the back of the tv is at most 400mm x 400mm.

u/Jack_Raiden · 2 pointsr/hometheater

Commercial A/V installer here, simple solution! Your TV's Vesa mounting pattern is 400x400. I recommend a single stud wall mount cable of a 400x400 pattern.

There will definitely be a stud between the two windows, use a reliable stud finder to mount this. You can use an articulating mount with a 16" back plate but is more work to mount. Your TV is light and a single stud mount will work perfectly.

u/m0ltar · 2 pointsr/ultrawidemasterrace

It's wall mounted. Used this wall mount to make it happen.

u/niceflipflop · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

You bet. The good news is that TVs are getting so light these days that the mounts are getting smaller and smaller.

So if you do opt for an extension/swivel, many of them only require a single stud for mounting to.

Like these:

Much smaller footprint than your current bracket.


u/Bezike · 2 pointsr/GoodValue

I used something like this with my TV at my old place (42 inch TV I believe):

It held up well, make sure you use the proper mounting procedures. Make sure you take a look at the angles it can turn and such and make sure it's what you want before you pick one out.

u/qovneob · 2 pointsr/DIY

You probably want a beefier wall mount for a 42". I suspect the one you got is in a stud so you can mount a new one over it, but they used the wrong hardware on it. Those are supposed to be hung with lag bolts, not wood screws and washers. So you might be able to reuse one (or both) holes but they might need to be drilled out a little wider

Something like this should fit and cover the existing holes.

u/SoWhatSoLetsDance · 2 pointsr/hometheater

Just moved into this apartment and there is only one wall that I can put the bed against in my room. Unfortunately, there are no viable places to mount a tv on the opposite wall (all taken up by closet doors.) I thought there was a stud in between the closet and the window but I was wrong. Is it possible to mount the tv onto the wooden frame right next to the window? I have the following TV mount and a 37 inch TV.

I was also considering mounting it on the wooden beam in between the two windows. It would be much closer to the bed which isn't ideal but I just need to find somewhere to mount it. Lastly, if i were to mount it to one of these surfaces, how difficult would it be to repair the holes/damages from doing this?

It was pretty easy to install - Kinda wish it was one of those cool hydraulic arms, but a good one of those is quite expensive.

u/camplightsatnight · 2 pointsr/DiWHY

I got mine for $29 at amazon and it's a full motion swivel articulating arm. It can hold my 46" TV 20" from the wall. AND it came with an HDMI cable and a 6" bubble-level. That bubble level has been very, very useful.

Aside from not putting anything big enough above it that could fall and damage an iMac.

I use a [bn39 adapter cable] ( on my LCD Flat Screen TV. I don't play Wii games that much, instead opting for Melee (I know, I know, blah blah blah input lag blah blah blah CRTs), but when I do play Wii games (Brawl and MKwii mostly) they always come out black and white. Can anyone give me an explanation? I think I know why, since I've changed that part out a few times, and this time we used a different brand, but does anyone know about this for sure?

u/Alseho · 2 pointsr/Gamecube

What is that component adapter you are using? Looks like this but without the audio jack inputs. Nice work tho, I plan on doing something similar soon, but have all 5 rca plugs go out to not need the A/V cable.

u/Oreoscrumbs · 2 pointsr/xboxone

I bought this set since my TV doesn't have USB. I paid $10 more, so this is a great deal. I turn it on every time I turn on the TV. The extra length allows me to bend it around the edges for an even tone around the frame.

u/_lolfuckyou · 2 pointsr/xboxone

i'm gonna pick up this after seeing yours. It doesn't do the same thing, but it has the best reviews and looks pretty cool. and it's cheap as hell. lol.

Ne ho una della Antec (stessa Antec dei case per PC), alimentata via USB quindi si spegne e accende da sola con la TV.

Fa bella scena, aumenta la percezione di profondità del nero, e riposa la vista poiché le pupille si dilatano e restringono meno spesso in presenza di una luce bianca costante. Consigliata.

u/DieselWang · 2 pointsr/hometheater

A few points to address your questions.

  • What you're referring to is bias lighting, and it has the effect of tricking your eyes to perceiving a higher contrast ratio. Here's an example of a set:

  • Contrast ratio is THE most important component of picture quality (contrast ratio is defined as the brightest the TV gets divided by the darkest blacks). Plasma has typically had higher contrast ratios than similarly price LCD's and are thus lauded for their performance/dollar ratio. They also have better motion handling, but generally speaking, they don't get as bright as LCD's so excessive ambient light can be an issue with plasma.

  • OLED is a technology that allows for 0 blacks. Remember our definition of contrast ratio? 0 is now in the denominator; OLED has effectively an 'infinite' contrast ratio which makes the technology so exciting and the picture quality of OLED so superb. Wait for prices to come down for it and the technology to mature, however.

  • Unless you have a huge screen or sit very close, 4K is probably not worth it at the moment unless the price difference isn't all that much. There's not a ton of 4k content available right now, although it's coming along.

  • To minimize input lag for gaming, use the television's "Game Mode," which turns off all unnecessary video processing that can add lag.

  • A note about calibration: calibration assures you get the same image that the producer of the content intended: ie, the colors you see are the same colors he or she meant for the scene. That is what is meant by a set having accurate colors, how closely it can be calibrated to resemble the director's intent for the program. This is largely a personal preference, whether someone prefers accurate, calibrated colors or not, but once you get used to a calibrated display, all those "vivid" or "dynamic" modes seem entirely too fake and "blue." These modes are used in store to attract attention, but they're not accurate and the colors are blown up and artificial looking. A 'real' calibration is mostly done by a professional calibrator unless you have your own tools, like a colorimeter. You can get close to a calibrated display by changing the set to "movie" or "cinema" mode and using a calibration disk (such as Disney's WOW disk) to tweak the settings further. Additionally, there are many picture settings online for specific TV models and although this might get you closer to a truly calibrated picture, each set is a little different and the same settings aren't guaranteed to get you a perfect result. For most users though, the aforementioned options will be fine. Hiring a good calibrator will run you a few hundred bucks and simply not worth it for the casual home theater enthusiast.
u/Smack_Damage · 2 pointsr/hometheater

Just picked up this string on Amazon recently, it seems to work well.

u/gravitywild · 2 pointsr/hometheater

Yeah! Here's a great example. They often go on sale. Just add that strip to the back of your TV and plug it into the USB (so it's on when the TV is on). I've had it for a year and love it.

Here's a photo of the effect.

Best of luck on the couch too!

u/agent_of_entropy · 2 pointsr/hometheater
u/rkmase · 2 pointsr/ultrawidemasterrace

Looks good! For anyone else, I grabbed these for cheap if you don't care about changing the color:

one long strip you just wrap around the back edge of the monitor with included self-adhesive tape. Great on the eyes in a dark room.

u/Shpixx · 2 pointsr/Calgary

Don't spend $100 to $200 on any 'brand name' wall mount. The $30 ones on Amazon are just as good in terms of build quality (fabricated metal, mounting spots, etc.) Search on YouTube/ Reddit you'll find lots of resources. You just need to ensure you mount into wall-studs, which is also quite easy once you figure out where they are and how to measure them apart. Did 3 in my house with a few quick YouTube DIY's.

Something like this:
$33 with 1,088 user-ratings.

u/FlartSimpson · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

You can use a mount like this, which doesn't require the studs to be perfectly centered behind the tv. You can slide the tv along the mount to get it positioned where you want.


That said, if there's another option I'd recommend it. TVs mounted that high are really uncomfortable to watch.

u/alf3311 · 2 pointsr/hometheater

Hmm bummer.

I see the Lumidoodle color strip includes the dimmer control, and I know my white Lumidoodle remembers its settings when powered off/on so I assume the color one would too. I think if you just set it to white you should be good.

No. There are more expensive bias lighting that plugs into your TV to accomplish that. For these you are better setting it on white. White and 6500k is technically what it should be.

You can manually change the color to match what is on the TV though.

Here is another type of light that plugs into the TV. I personally have no experience with it though.

It does get black, but not pure black like OLED. The next generation of Quantum TVs will be able to do that. I think Samsung is expecting to have those available next year. It's mostly the brightness where it shines. Allows the TV to have very good HDR and color performance.

If the size is a matter of the stand being too wide, I have a pair of these that are absolutely amazing.

u/bui1t · 2 pointsr/hometheater

If the TV is vesa mountable, I would get a universal tv stand that would better fit the mantle. If you are worried about your kids yanking it, also get some anchor straps. Much less work than building a frame and using a wall mount imo, especially for a rental place. Having it on a stand even with anchors would allow you to slide it sideways to access switches behind. They even make stands that swivel, though I'm not sure how much clearance you will get in that spot.

u/Asoxus · 2 pointsr/battlestations

Here's the one I got - it's the laptop/monitor stand but they have monitor/monitor configurations too:

u/crazyg0od33 · 2 pointsr/hometheater

depending on TV size, we got something like this before we wall mounted our TV, and it was great. Looks sleek, and allows the TV to be raised / lowered / rotated a bit.

Not too expensive either, if you dont want it on the wall

u/MuhNamesTyler · 2 pointsr/xboxone

u/koorob · 2 pointsr/hometheater

another option is to get a 3rd party tv stand that lets you keep tv on cabinet but raise it high enough to clear the speaker.

Something like this:

I go with #2 B.A., but you have room for Miccas it seems.? Micca MB42XC are 5.25" Wide, MB42X - 5.75" (I just measured mine)

or 3 of the Micca 0o0 as sugested and use existing surrounds

I'd Wall Mount R/ L and a lil Bigger center would Fit, or raise Tv a few inches and many centers would fit on Top of cabinet. Wall Mount TV or Butcher block base under tv foot or cabinet top tv stand.

Kids cant knock over wall mounted.......

if you opted to Wall mount R / L you could go with the DCM speakers on Ebay

u/SwissMoose · 1 pointr/hometheater

I had a similar issue, with a built in that was big enough for a 30" 4:3 TV but wouldn't fit a 40" 16:9 HDTV. I ended up just cutting a custom shelf that bolted into the existing space but hung out of the cabinet just enough to support the stand of the new HDTV. Something light that might work for you and you wouldn't have to deal with a custom mount for each new TV.

Of if there is a solid wood mounting location on either side of that space you could just use one of these.

u/confoundedjoe · 1 pointr/hometheater

Something like this should work Just mount it on the side. It might not be perfectly centered over the opening but it will work.

u/sirdudethefirst · 1 pointr/DIY

It's not very likely that your closet molding will hold the weight of a TV plus whatever you're planning on mounting the TV on.

What I would do is get 2 of these [exercise bars] ( (or similar) and make a mount for your TV to hang on both of them. Depending on how deep your door frame is you can even tilt it down a few degrees. The concept is based on this sort of mount.

The bars are going to be placed across the door frame, one higher than the other to allow for the TV mount to be hang on them.

If you're experienced enough to build your own mount for the TV, go for it (it can be a bit tricky especially if you want to tilt, rotate and reposition the TV), or you can get something cheap like the link above and use only the part for the TV and store the part that is bolted to the wall for when you can drill holes to the wall.

You can also use this sort of mount to mount it on the exercise bars.


Edit: more clarification.

u/Divalent2007 · 1 pointr/AirBnB

I'm not sure I can envision your room layout, so I don't know if this would work; but have you considered mounting a TV to a wall using an extendable swivel mount? That way a tv "over there" can be viewed "over here". Something like this:

I was planning on using the 65mm screws that came with the mount.

The studfinder I am using, also in the picture, does have the AC voltage detection. But, like you said, I don't know how accurate this is so I will be sure to very cautious.

As far as the wall material, I'm not sure what it's made of. I'm going to try to find out.

If interested, this is the mount I bought. Seems to be one of the most popular and versatile on Amazon.

Thank you for your response. Never even considered the material of the sunroom wall.

EVGA are generally well regarded for Nvidia. I couldn't tell you about 1440p monitors (I'm a 16:10 man myself) but look for one with VESA mounting, compatible wall mounts are fairly cheap.

u/MrDuck · 1 pointr/howto

That is a very 'special' monitor. Most monitors have what are called VESA compatibility, the base can be removed and the LCD can be attached to a standard mounting system, look up VESA on google for examples. I have seen some very impressive 4x2 screen systems set up with standard monitors and four position VESA monitor stands. This dell on the other hand does not have anything like that. You could use epoxy to try and attach it to a standard plate, or take the back off and put screws through the plastic, but for a good solution you will need a better monitor.

Hmm what I can think of is maybe buying 2 of these

VideoSecu ML531BE TV Wall Mount for most 22"-55" LED LCD Plasma Flat Screen Monitor up to 88 lb VESA 400x400 with Full Motion Swivel Articulating 20 in Extension Arm, HDMI Cable & Bubble Level WP5

And mounting one to the wall to just get distance from the wall, use a peice of plywood or something to be able to connect it to the second one (second one would need to be faced sideways to be able to tilt down)

Idk if that would work at all but only thing I can think of lol

u/DrummerDKS · 1 pointr/Televisions

I ended up getting the TV! I also have been using this wall mount for a few years now, it'd done well by me. It's also held a '08 50" plasma which was heavy as fuck and didn't have any issues.

It's a really solid set up, I'm super happy so far.

u/Ryan_Ketcham · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

I am using this mount: VideoSecu ML531BE TV Wall Mount since I was very paranoid as well (also had a pillow on my desk for like a week, especially since it is made of glass). It works great, holds a lot of weight and has a good range of motion.

I do not have a second monitor, but if I did I’d probably mount it above if that was possible with a wall mount. I think a desk mount is better for mounting two, unless there’s some way to make a wall mount hold 2. If that wouldn’t work I’d flip it on it’s side next to the ultrawide for reading webpages/text/whatever. I use that at work for software dev and it’s pretty convenient.

u/MatiasPula · 1 pointr/battlestations

Wall mounts, im from argentina so i cant give u any link to it but on amazon i found this one for the 24' monitor and [this one for the 40' tv] ( similars to mine.

Edit: the links are scrambled, so you know.

u/moar_distractions · 1 pointr/GoodValue

I've had 0 issues with this, $25 bucks, amazon best seller.

Don't know why everyone doesn't buy this type exclusively. I've recommended and helped install this to other people as well. It tilts left and right, so you don't even really need to mount it perfect.

u/jetcopter · 1 pointr/DIY

I would buy a mount similar to this ( and mount it on a post.

A Plexiglas enclosure may be a little elaborate and cost upwards of $100 in parts alone. I would just make a cover for the TV with a good quality tarp and put it over the TV when not in use.

u/Cato_Keto_Cigars · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

Hi, thanks for chiming in.

Nothing huge. Likely between 40 and 55 inches. The mount is a VideoSecu ML531BE - that claims to support screens up to 88 lbs.

Most 40-55 inch screens I am seeing are around 35lbs, give or take 10lbs.

I figure by the time the next upgrade comes around, in 10ish years, the mountable portion of the tv will be next to nothing regardless of size.

u/MegaRaichu · 1 pointr/hometheater

Dunno if this is reputable lol. Just had good amazon reviews.

u/MMfuryroad · 1 pointr/hometheater

Or you could do what this Amazon purchaser did with this same wall mount. On a lot of things requiring installation of some kind I often read many of the Amazon reviews for ideas like this. It's how I got a good idea for mounting my larger side surrounds speakers so that I could slide them forward or back on the wall with just a slight push. Where there's a will there's a way.

Reinforced t.v. wall mount

u/Blarvey · 1 pointr/battlestations

This is correct. All of the mounts will instruct you to drill into the studs and will have a weight rating. I have had a 32" wall-mounted with this for over six months now and it has worked perfectly.

u/dfinf2 · 1 pointr/DIY

Good job on the project, but they do make cheap mounts, although they are wall mounts I own both of these which would have been cheaper.

u/Santiagodraco · 1 pointr/ValveIndex

Quick release stands should be fine if you need them. As long as the lighthouses are stable anything works.

I bought the FastCap mounts... and didn't use them. They are overly obtrusive and you are much better served, imo, by installing small corner shelves or just mounting the lighthouse's included stands to the wall. It's really not worth putting up those stands. They are neat but imo not the best way to go.

For my VR room I used the following to provide unobtrusive access to the VR Pc (note the PC is in the closet and the door can be closed when in use):

Keyobard mount (I then used a Logitech keyboard and trackball with magnets to secure them when the mount is closed):

TV wall mount and a 4k TV (40 inch). One note here... I don't recommend this for a larger 4k tv like what I have here as you are too close to the display when using the keyboard. It's great for people to see whats going on while observing but it's harder to work with when accessing the PC out of VR. Use a smaller display.

TV and mount:

TV Mount:

I'll post pictures of the room sometime. I like what the OP did with the gym mats. Good look and protection but if you do your chaperone properly it's probably not necessary (but certainly doesn't hurt).

Lastly I have all of the equipment running on Smartthings controlled switches so I can power on the "room" (PC, display, lighthouses, etc etc) on demand. I normally turn off the PC normally and have BIOS set to power on the PC when power is restored (ie the Smartthings switch is turned on). So I can tell my Amazon Echo to "Alexa, turn on the VR Room" and everything powers on and is ready for use when I get there.

u/andy2na · 1 pointr/Hue

I never read anything about that - what were people saying?

As long as your mount doesn't wobble, youre fine.

The first wall mount I ordered (because I was just going by weight) was wobbly with this TV so I then ordered this one and it is sturdy as can be.

u/dustinr26 · 1 pointr/ultrawidemasterrace

I have same monitor and for mine I used this one

Due to the back of the monitor being angle though and not flat I went to Home Depot and bought several plastic spacers to have it stick out off the back I can attached photos after I post to show you. But I has been great wall mount I had it previously already for my Dell 27inch S2716DG 2560/1440 144hz Gsync before upgrading to Ultrawide.

Took screw in to find best fit and bought two and electircal taped them to make sure didnt touch against monitor you will see in pics. Been up for over a year no issues and I do pull and shift at time off wall no issues what so ever.

Nylon Spacers

Here images off back from overlooking the Top of the monitor so you can see.

Hope that helps. Good luck tons to choose from

u/hnosaj2 · 1 pointr/DestinyTheGame
u/Bathroomdestroyer · 1 pointr/DIY

I have my 50" TV mounted to a single stud with two lags. It's an arm mount and the TV is only about 40 pounds though.

OP, why not get a piece of nice plywood to attach to your mount, then use the lags to put into the top of the mount. This is going to be hard to explain, but if you mount the bottom mounting holes to the plywood(use nuts and bolts with the bolt head on the backside flush with the plywood), and the top lags through the plywood and the studs. Then you only make two holes in the wall and the mount is secure. The bottom may try to pull away from the wall when you adjust the TV though.

The bottom has it's force going into the wall and down, while the top has the force going away from the wall and down.

Get a single stud mount. I have had this one for almost two years now. You may need a set of these as well.

u/torena · 1 pointr/DIY

The TV is 46" and the mount I got is this one. I guess what I need to know now is whether that IS a stud or not? Does it qualify for mounting? I can put plywood up on two studs but sadly it won't be centered on my wall anymore :(

u/milhuevos · 1 pointr/HomeImprovement

Yes this is for a TV mount, the good thing is I have an idea of how the studs are laid out, I just need to locate the middle at this point.

For reference, this is what I'm working with:

In terms of the drill size, I'm using a 5/32" drill bit.

u/venemous · 1 pointr/hometheater

This is the mount I got. I'm going to try to mount it either during this week or over the weekend. I'll let you know how it works.

u/johnriven · 1 pointr/AskReddit

If you want to be practical and this is really your concern use these earthquake straps.

u/magneticbetty · 1 pointr/TrollXChromosomes

This has happened to our TV in the past too, so we secure it now with these TV straps. They work really well!

Having the straps means I don't have to get that horrible spike of adrenaline every time the kitty slips behind the TV anymore. (The last time I saw it starting to tip and lunged off the couch toward the TV, trying to catch it. Managed to get far enough forward for it to land partially on me, but not to stop it hitting the ground and breaking. Ow.)

u/Sir_Honytawk · 1 pointr/Vive

Should have gone with a projector instead if you could. The hitbox is much smaller.

I feel you man. I ended up picking up a screen protector from Amazon for our 4K 60-inch cause my kids have solid throwing arms, not to mention VR playing adults. LOL. It seems a bit much but in the whole scheme of things it's just easier than having to buy a whole new TV.

Or you can make your own for much less with lexan if you're the handy type.

u/jaba1337 · 1 pointr/hometheater

Something like this is a cheap, easy way to see if bias lighting works for you

u/Amerzel · 1 pointr/battlestations

Have you considered trying out led lights on the back of the monitors instead of the lamp?

Something like,

u/GlossyProse · 1 pointr/explainlikeimfive

It's just lights, man. It's not something you "do to the TV". Lights are merely placed behind a TV/monitor, usually attached to back of the monitor itself to reflect on the surface behind it. The purpose is to increase the ambient light around the screen without shining more light on the screen itself or directly in your eyes. Some plug into the TV/monitor and get their power that way. Some have a battery pack. You could get lights designed and marketed for it or DIY pretty easily with LED christmas lights and some tape, or anything really.

u/mrafcho001 · 1 pointr/hometheater

I'm very happy with this one on my 75" TV:

My TV is wall mounted, but there is a TV stand/media center beneath it to house all the electronics, so I have the Bias lighting placed 3/4 of the way up across the back of the TV. I don't care to have lighting beneath the TV, but it still diffuses down quite a bit. I also had to pull the TV out a little bit, otherwise it was too bright for my liking, and it gets better diffusion this way.

u/ignorantscience · 1 pointr/hometheater

I just got This usb bias lighting from amazon. I haven't set it finalized attachment to the tv yet, but it seems like it'll be nice because it is powered by the USB port on my tv, so it turns on and off with the tv.

u/Teamyuss · 1 pointr/xboxone

If you are looking for a standard light behind the TV, (not one that changes colors), I use this one
Plugs into my TV USB port for power, and turns on when the TV does. Cheap solution that works for me.

u/Kyvalmaezar · 1 pointr/Hue

Don't know about Hue light strips. I'm using a cheap bias light. Its fairly flexible but I didn't try bending it at the corners. Mine goes straight across the back. I just trimmed it to length. One day I'll replace it with a Hue strip when it goes on a decent sale.

Your next purchase should be some Bias Lighting. It will look pretty and your eyes will love you.

u/telos0 · 1 pointr/4kTV

My toddler smashed a TV by throwing a toy at it so I bought an acrylic screen protector for the new one. So far has worked great.

Something like this:

u/maxedout2134 · 1 pointr/hometheater

If your issue is that the TV your looking at uses 2 wider feet, you can look at universal stands that have a middle base to fit onto smaller TV stands.

Something like this

u/Xealyth · 1 pointr/VIZIO_Official

Sorry, I meant an actual stand holding the TV, something like this but a bit smaller/lower.

u/victorescu · 1 pointr/hometheater

I had a similar headache with my center channel when I setup my surround sound. Looks like my center channel was slightly smaller though.

I used this adjustable stand to raise the TV high enough that the speaker could fit in front of it. As long as your TV has VESA mounts you can use it or something similar.

A video showing more about the stand:

Perhaps this will work for you. It was exactly what solved my issue cause I'm not comfortable with wall mounting stuff.

u/B0NERSTORM · 1 pointr/HelpMeFind

You can basically buy almost any kit that fits that standard and it should fit ok. If you look up tv brackets, what you're looking for are the two vertical brackets that screw to the back of the tv then hook on to what you have on the wall there. A whole kit costs as little as $15 so you'd probably be better off just buying an entire kit, because just buying the missing parts could end up being as expensive as a whole kit. Or just ask the landlord if you can get the bars because they're probably not using them if their bracket is in the rental.

Here's an example of something that would work.

You just need something that will hook on to that rail that's already installed. Also understand when I say the system is universal, it's the holes between the bracket and the tv that are by universal standard.

u/DiDgr8 · 1 pointr/AndroidTV

If you want an "Ambilight" experience, just get a Luminoodle.

u/Berkut22 · 1 pointr/DIY

If your TV has a USB slot, why not get one of these

I have the white (non-RGB) one and it works flawlessly. For the price, I'd say it's worth a shot. You can ask your questions on Amazon about the color being retained after power down.

USB on the TV means it turns on and off automatically with your TV, or you can plug it into a cheap wall wart and use the remote.

u/H4ppyMeal · 1 pointr/xboxone

I think on your tv it’s called dimming zones, try turning that to low. I would keep the eco settings off. I use some built in bias lights on my entertainment center now, but I was using these before

u/SlickWik · 1 pointr/VIZIO_Official

Bought the same model. But the legs were too far apart for my table. Picked this up from Amazon

VIVO Universal LCD Flat Screen TV Table Top VESA Mount Stand Black | Base fits 22" to 65"

Probably cheaper.

u/zim2411 · 1 pointr/hometheater

Alright, so I would get these TV legs to raise the TV a bit and bring it closer to you. (Bonus effect, making it seem like you have a larger TV.) If the VESA mount points on your TV are wide enough you could place the center in the middle; if not, you could have little riser blocks and go over the feet of the stand. I think that would net you a good 6" to 8" of clearance.

As for speakers, the DT CS9060 is pretty solid, but I haven't heard the Mythos or S series. I can wholeheartedly recommend GoldenEar's SuperCenter + Aon 2's, though that unfortunately leaves no budget for rears.

Whatever you choose though is 100% better than a sound bar, and I'll take the Polk or Def Tech build over the Sonos build any day of the week.

Edit: Also keep in mind that you really want the center channel at the edge of your furniture to eliminate reflections. That further backs up my idea of bring the TV forward and up to give you more space for a larger center.

u/red286 · 1 pointr/bapcsalescanada

Maybe try Amazon? There's a lot of various kits, but primarily what you're looking for are either M4 standoffs (you might want to measure how deep you need, basically measure from the screw hole to the top of the plastic tab in the VESA mount space) or longer M4 screws with spacers. Unfortunately, most of these kits either cover every possible TV/monitor setup (including many non-standard ones) or else they're good for setting up 25-250 displays (eg - 100pcs or 1000pcs). Even the ones that are good for 25 displays are only ~$20, but it's massive overkill.

UV light is what causes the damage. Hell, direct UV light is even bad for a regular LCD. Brief exposure is no biggie, but prolonged and regular exposure will cause damage.

Besides curtains/shades you could also get something like this

They also make window films that block UV light, but they're usually tinted (turns your windows into sunglasses basically).

Yeah, I'm just not comfortable with the process. I would rather pay the extra money to have an "expert" (hopefully) do it and make sure it's properly mounted. I don't know what I would do if I tried to do it and the TV fell on my daughter.

This is the mount I was looking at.
