      Sky Box and Wall Mounting Ideas

      Hi

      I'm looking to get my LCD mounted on the wall with a bracket, to free up some space in our tiny and pokey living room. The only setback is the Sky Digibox will need to have a stand. Can they be mounted on the wall too or am I being too adventurous here? Anyone got any ideas as I think putting the STB on a stand defeats the purpose of having a wall mounted TV
      I dont suffer from insanity... I enjoy every minute of it!

      Assuming an alcove (disused fire grate?) is out of the question, how about a wall mounted shelf for your Sky box. I have seen an upside down Sky box in a cradle suspended from the ceiling though I think this used a bespoke bracket rather than something you could buy off the shelf.

      How about put it in a cupboard and use a magic eye..

      A very important consideration when placing any electrical device in a cupboard is cooling. The Sky+ HD STB is no exception to this and should have plenty of air flow to keep it cool.
