New Meetinghouses with Mounted TV in RS/Primary rooms

#1

Post by bphilli7 »

Hi,

I was wondering about the new church building plans, that have TVs mounted in the RS rooms.

Our stake president asked FM to install TVs into our two older buildings. FM hired some electricians to come and hang a Samsung SMART TV on the wall. And that's all they did.

The stake president is less than impressed with the workmanship. He was hoping they would put a panel on the wall or something other than an HDMI cable hanging down from behind the TV. He has asked me to look into it and suggest upgrades that could be paid for out of stake funds (instead of FM) that will make it more user friendly/clean looking.

I would like to stick with standard plans the church is doing, to the extent possible. Hoping someone out there in a newer building can shed some light for me on what the church installed into the building for this technology.

I know you're looking for a long-term solution, but even in the short term I'd be sure to add a strain relief to that. I've got TVs mounted on carts that have had their HDMI port ripped out. Not sure how it happened, maybe someone tripped on the cable.

It doesn't have to be fancy. Just tie wrap the cable to something structural so any pull will be on that and not the port.

very good point... I'll be sure to zip tie the cable to the metal bracket or something.
