Hi, I shall be putting up a V1-40 in a kitchen / diner and really like the idea of the hanging bracket, looks very very cool but looks very impractical 

Has anyone come with a suitable solution for cabling? I will need 2 x power cables & 1 x ethernet. The IPTV device can be mounted to the rear of the TV

The only way I can see this being done, is by installing a thin as possible tube / trunking, wide enough for the 3 cables, attached to one of the hanging bracket / line thingys. Then straight up into the ceiling

Any ideas?

 

Cheers,

T

I placed mine in a corner. Ran cables straight back from TV to corner. Then down the corner to floor level and covered with a cable cover painted to match the wall.

Thanks, yeah that's an option but the plan is to hang the TV in a place not in a corner and potentially to be able to walk behind it. But sure, I could position it in a more suitable place without it being an eye sore or a pain in the a$$

By the way, how easy / difficult was it to install the hanging brackets? I won't be doing it myself, I know that much!

Did you know that there is a ceiling bracket from STBBracket.

Does not not look that ‘special’ as the original solution from B&O (which I prefer).

But you might think different - and it is probably easier to hide the cables with that.

There is a tv - and there is a BV.

I did not do it myself either. It did not look too difficult. I had two people do it. I don’t think a single person could do it given the weight of the TV.

Yeah I've seen them. OK for a conference room but not OK for my kitchen ;-)

That's good to know, cos I'm not going to use my B&O installer for this job, was going to ask my builder

What have you got mounted to the back? Can you get universal device mounting options? All I'm having is an IPTV device, palm of your hand size

I do not have anything mounted to the back. The only two cables running to it are the power cord and and hdmi cable from a satellite box.

Ah, I suppose the way to do it, if possible, is to get a very very very very very very long remote IR extender for the device and do it that way, Would only be a thin cable and the TV power cord to hide

Are the brackets height adjustable? I've seen a library picture and the TV was very close to the floor!!!
