Television Upgrade.

Hi, This Spring I decided to get rid on my old heavy crt tv on our 2003 Minnie Winnie 430v.

Going to a flat panel Led. Only problem is the 16x9 aspect ratio gives a pretty small picture area on a 24" tv. Which is the largest width I could fit in the present over cab entertainment center.

So I redesigned the whole entertainment center. Lost about 100 lbs of tv and steel frame under it and a glass door cabinet. Gained a 39" hdtv and more storage in the space once occupied by the old tv.

Not quite done but here are the before and after images.

I just stuck a 48" Visio in the overhead. No cabinets though. Yours looks great.

ID:	61333I just finished replacing an old style tv with a 32"LED. When finished, another 7cu. ft. of storage was one of the benefits. This install was done on a BT Cruiser

I do not mind the smaller picture.. But would like a good working remote (the one I have only partilly works the beast) When the job is done the features I can not access will be accessable via on-device controls.

Found one that fits like a glove.. And I can do most of the remote operations.. Good sharp picture, Just finished watching a show I started on the CRT. And a cabinet maker just gave me a quote of 70 bucks do what I can't do on the cabinetry.. Then I need to put in some shelves and neat-maize the cables a bit (and Ill have the set up of my dreams. But it's in there and working and the very same brackets are holding it,, Amazing.

wa8yxm- Thought I was okay with the smaller picture so I put in a 24" led and it was not to easy to watch, I guess I could have put on my reading glasses, but I decided to do it the hard way instead.
