Heres something that is not a change to board. How about a box that will fit the standard mounting brackets on the back of most HD TV? The case will have a built in USB hub. That way your TV and computer become one unit with less mess. Kinda like the "Net PC"'s from the turn of the century. (Man that make me feel old.)

First thought was to buy a lump of sugru and just stick it to the back of the TV.

Heh... Sounds like something I'd say... ;)

I think if you get a proper polycarbonate or metal enclosure box for it, you can just simply stick some super-velcro to the box and to the TV and velcro it to the back... :D

Standard VESA spacings (100mmx100mm) are quite a bit larger than the intended size of the RaspberryPi. You'd either need to find something else to cram into the case, or waste quite a bit of space.
