Not so much of a 'flip-dowm', more of a 'flip-up' hugegrins

Sorry Dutto, but 'bigger is better' in my van, tried a tiddler, but the only place thats out of the way in mine is in the front overhead locker door,
& it looked tiny, so since we view from about 8ft away, doesn't look big at all.
Tried A/S for a new door ( I didn't wish to chop-up the original ) but they no longer can supply, so I bought a lump of skirting-board, & some 6mm
ply, made a replacement using the original as a template, found the biggest led flatscreen (22in) I could fit & whackked it in.

The problem then was since the speakers 'fired' downwards, the sound ended up in the locker, so I fitted a couple of good quality car speakers
either side, sounds great now, I also arranged for the tv to pivot in the door at the bottom to give a good viewing angle, it locks & stows upright
when travelling, & of course, it simply folds up with the door when accessing the locker, I don't have a tv anntenna, only the sat-dome, & the
control-box & sat-box are hidden inside the locker out of the way, you can just see the remote reciever on the front L/H skirt.



BTW, its a 12v tv/dvd combo with a mains-adaptor, I simply did away with this & wired it into the 12v distribution board I made, This has 4 x separate
fused switches so the tv, control box & sat-box can all be isolated & removed as & when required.

Very neat! allthumbz

I particularly like the "tilt" function because it can make all the difference when viewing a TV screen. allthumbz

think_smiley_46 Due to the digital change over I now have two spare tellys. One very old black and white 5" bought in Germany many years ago probly not worth keeping. The other is a cute 3" colour telly, small yes but a good picture and I could wedge it in the steering wheel of my T4 when I was waiting for jobs during my time at the roadside. What can you do with these old tellys now, shrugg I supose it will be more things for the land fill sites to fill up on. As for size of tellys, we have a 19" in our living room and that seems suficient in our modest semi. I see huge wall size tellys in teraced house living rooms. happyno As for the Duetto size vans the one we have seems suficient. Each to there own ect. biggrin

Most recycling centers will take TV’s as almost all the components can be recycled. I was given a 16” flat screen that was destine for the tip, and am in the process of fitting it. I ordered a tilt and turn bracket of eBid, at £7.50 I wasn’t expecting much but it’s a quality AVF product that’s no longer made so very happy. He still has a few if anyone requires one. TV Bracket Link up!

we just treated the harmony to a 16" led DIGIHOME one, got it in the comet closing down sale and has to be said at under 70 quid we cant complain at all. Freeview, dvd player, Usb input for memory stick with our downloaded films on, has hdmi etc too and came with both 240 and 12v leads, also far lighter than the avtex ones, granted its maybe not as sturdy in the very long term but its going to be wall mounted out the way and takes very little space. Perfect for what we wanted up!

edit: also using a suction mounted status omni aerial on the roof (20 ish years old maybe??) with the status booster pack and perfect signal drinksallround

Hope I'm not "off topic", but where are you going to mount your TV?
Just curios
Thanks
