I want to sink TV cables into the walls when installing 50" LG HD TV. how many HDI leads (the TV takes 3) How many scart leads, and is there a difference in quality, ie do i need gold. Comet tryed to sell me some for £75, I found similar in Marko for £20, what is the difference. Also Makro had cheap wall brackets that accomodated a 50" hoever it was only £25, similar was £90 in Comet - is there something I should be looking for, I do not need a tilt one. Thanks for any help given

Re: What cables are needed to put tv on wall
Dont waste your £££ on gold plated they make no difference the back of your telly will be alley as well as all the things your connecting it to.
If I was you I would case the following cable into the wall. I would definetely put at least one scart in the wall.... this could be used for DVD, Sky, etc... I would run 3 HDMI in the wall... this would future proof you. ie when the cost of Blue ray player, etc come down in price.
playstation, Blue ray, Sky+ HD box etc etc. The last thing you want to do is have to chase the wall again.
There is a tool I saw in Maplin and Screw fix It attaches to a regular drill and is set at an angle. Makes chasing walls a Lot easier.

If you wish to record (VHS) off cable :
First connect the co-ax cable from the wall to the input on the DVD/VHS , then connect a second from the output of the DVD/VHS to the input of the TV.
You will need to match the channel (3/4) output and input. There should be a switch on the back of the DVD/VHS.
Tune the TV to channel 3 or 4 to match, To watch DVD/VHS .
Channel selection will be with the DVD/VHS when it is powered on.
TV will tune to channel when the DVD/VHS is off.
ok it depends on the wall mount but this is the basic idea of it. make sure there is at least one other person to help you.
1. Make sure everything is off and unplugged from the tv.
2. If you have cables holding your tv to the wall remove them.
3. there should be securing screws at both sides of the arms attaching the tv to the wall. loosen them/ remove them.
4. lift and pull the tv away from the wall. have a friend help you.
5. remove the screws and bolts from the tv and the wall mount and you should be done.
If this doesn't work, find the manual for the wall mount. if you need help or additional tips put them in the comments. Thanks
Your "Cable" input, simply goes into the usual, "Antenna" socket in back of the TV, sometimes the lead from the Wall has a Threaded Satellite Receiver "F" Connection, and the TV is Belling-Lee connector, & they won't fit. However you can get adapters from your local TV accessories shop. or Ebay. If require you would need a Female F plug to male Belling-Lee.
LCD TV refers to the substance that creates the picture quality (it would be either LCD or Plasma or Tube) and HD refers to a crisp clear picture that can be attained. So your TV is an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) TV that is capable of receiving and displaying HD (High Definition) Picture.
What you need to check for is whether the TV has a built-in Tuner. This will either be SD (standard definition) TV Tuner or an HD TV Tuner. The box it came in will tell you or you may still have stickers on your TV.
If it has a built-in SD tuner you will be able to pick up HD channels but in a lower quality. In this case you will only need to plug the TV into a Wall-socket antenna or rabbit-ear antenna.
If it has a built-in HD Tuner you will be able to pick up HD Channels in full HD quaility picture. Simply by plugging the TV into a Wall-socket antenna or rabbit-ear antenna.
If your TV does NOT have a built-in TV-Tuner then this TV is clasified as "HD Ready". Which means that you have to purchase a Set Top Box (STB). you can get either HD or SD set top boxes. In this instance you will plug the cable from the wall socket into the STB then from the STB into the TV using either an HDMI cable (as long as your TV has an HDMI input) or through RCA cables which will be coloured Green, Blue and Red (i think red)
By the Way - best picture quality is from a wall-socket antenna. HDMI = High Definition Multimedia Interface STB = Set Top Box High Definiton RCA cables will also be refered to as YPbPr/YCbCr (depending on equipment) LCD = Liquid Crystal Display (the method used to make the picture on your TV screen)
For a true flush mount installation, you will need to recess your connections (i.e. power, HDMI, S-Vid, etc). Most tvs have the connections coming out of the bottom to allow flush mounting.
If your wall is not drywall, or you really don't want to bother with the expense of recessing your outlets and cable connections, just get a swivel arm mount. It will allow the TV to sit a bit further from the wall and still look ok.
