In a relatively new apartment, seems like they would expect a wall mount to go here in the middle of the living room. However I worry putting it right above this cable port, in the bottom of the picture is setting myself up to drill into a line. Am I being overly cautious or do I need to do something to check for sure? Many thanks


The cable outlet on the bottom

The white paper is where I'll be drilling, in the center of the stud

The picture got flip some out. Sorry about that everyone

Ask yourself: If you are truly going through the stud, why would you hit a cable line?

Co ax doesn't carry voltage anyway and if you're on center stud you should be 3/4" away from it. Use a stud finder correctly and you'll be fine.

It's a three screw mount, big fucking screws but fixing it up should be relatively easy .

You might be thinking of CRTs, but even then it would just cause a temporary distortion due to magnetic fields.

There's absolutely nothing about an LCD TV that would be affected by its orientation.
