rear TV mount for RPi

Tue Oct 02, 2012 6:12 pm

Hi, I am looking for a RPi case that can be mounted on the rear mounting holes on a standard flat screen TV. My preference would be for a mount that mounts into two of the four 200mm separated mounting holes in a say 32 inch TV.

Any help is appreciated.

I looked around for you, but I could only find 100mm mounts...are you sure your holes are 200mm apart?

Only one I could find for 200mm was on Shapeways for $30.00: http://www.shapeways.com/model/718767/r ... 00-mm.html

Thanks, interesting design and yes 200mm is my spacing requirement as it is a 32" TV.

Seems expensive especially for an open case so I will keep looking.

Thanks for this. It seems others need the same thing. My need is for 200x200 spacing but actually an offset using just two 200mm spacing holes such that it could be attached between the TV and any mounted stand would be ideal. So In this variation the RPi would sit offset to one side or the other of the VESA holes if there was a mount or could be in the middle if no mount. I believe two holes for mounting would be enough given the light weight of the RPi. The 200mm mount example shown (thanks) could work except the thickness of the plastic hole mounts would require a spacer on the other side if the TV is mount and accordingly longer M4 bolts but that would be fine.

My other concern with that design is the cost and open PRi mount so I will continue to search.

[nwaset makes a really attractive "Tuxedo" case for the Raspberry Pi that mounts on the back of a TV set using the standard VESA 75 mount.

The case has room for an optional heavy power supply board, and for a GPIO IR receiver for reading remote controls. The SD card ends up enclosed inside of the unit. This is perfect to package-up the Raspberry Pi with the TV. I use mine with a Logitech wireless keyboard with a built-in track-pad and an Edimax USB Wi-Fi adapter.
