For the purposes of this walk-through, we'll assume you're already up to speed on what cables you'll need, as well as how to hook everything up.

HDTV Wall Mounting
Perhaps Santa delivered a new plasma. Or maybe you just want to free up a little space for the Kinect and center channel. Either way, mounting that flatscreen on a wall is never a bad idea—provided you have the space. Before you begin though, there are a few tools you'll want to pick up from the hardware store (if you don't already have them):

• wall-mounting bracket
• stud finder
• carpenter's level
• power drill
• measuring tape
• screwdriver
• pencil.
