How to wall mount my Sony XBR900e (TV)? What to do? *SOLVED*

Be easy. It'll be my first time mounting a TV on the wall.

Facts:

- I have a "blank slate" wall. The other side is my outside wall
- power outlet is almost dead straight on the bottom of where I want my TV to be hung
- use an IPTV primarily, use the laptop occasionally using HDMI
- bought this recessed plates: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B06WP2 ... UTF8&psc=1
- have a tilting mount

Problem:

The TV comes with a huge power adapter/supply: http://i.rtings.com/images/reviews/tv/s ... -large.jpg

so I don't think there's anyway I'm putting that inside the wall (I don't think the cord is that long). My IPTV adapter also have a big-ish power supply similar to this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/PKPOWER-Adapte ... 556?_ul=AR


I'm thinking of getting my power outlet moved right behind my TV - problem "sort of" solved, but where do I store my TV's power supply? Where to hang the IPTV box? I can't really fish my IPTV's power supply. My initial thought is to place a small shelf right beneath the TV, but I can't find any on the net (that way I can just let the shelf sit flush right beneath the TV and run the HDMI and power supply behind)

Ideas would be appreciated


EDIT:

Finished product attached

I bought another recessed plate outlet from Home Depot, so the recessed plates I bought will be returned

Your TV should have come with straps that you can use to attach the power brick to the back of the TV, and the instructions should have covered that.

You don't say what size you got, but I think that's the case for most of them, except for the 75", which has the brick internally.

As far as the IPTV box, no idea how big it is, so no idea where you can stuff it.

Just use velcro and stick the IPTV/power brick somewhere behind the TV, where it's out of sight. Make sure you're not blocking any ventilated areas where the heat is meant to dissipate.

Remember not to run any electrical in the wall, the cable on the TV PSU is not rated for in wall.

Best way is to hire an electrician to add an outlet behind your TV and just shove everything behind the TV.

I believe you can use the below kit without hiring an electrician since you are not modifying your electrical lines, more or less treated as an extension cord.

Had my electrician do this

Thanks to my tilting mount I was able to shove everything behind. Didn't even need to strap the power block behind my TV (which btw, the said straps doesnt come with the TV)

For a cleaner look I'm gonna velcro my IPTV box behind the TV and show just enough so I can still flip through my channels. Photo to follow when I finish it :)

Thanks all
