This is something I obviously would like to have a quality solution for, but don’t know what the best way is to go about it.

Looking for either a tv stand that can rotate or a stable way to set and lean the tv against something with supports and such.

Any info to what brand of tv and stand you use, furniture of what it sits on and is supported by or actual pics would most welcome.

Apologies if there is another topic on this. I searched a while and could not find one

Thanks.

What sort of support or rig you need is going to depend on the kind of TV.

For CRTs I have mainly rotated a 25" Sony Trinitron (flat screen, one of the boxier ones, early 2002). It supports itself and doesn't need to be pushed up to a wall or anything. Like any other set, it just needs a table or stand strong enough to hold its weight, which isn't a lot (maybe 80 pounds tops for this model? Probably less).

I also have a 23" Trinitron. It's like the one above but came out later that year and they redesigned the the shell. It's much more rounded on the back and probably wouldn't hold itself upright, at least not at a particularly good angle. I still haven't tried to TATE it because of that, I'd probably have to shove it against a wall or something.

Eh, I think that if you have one of those monster 50" HDTV your only option is a custom wall-mount bracket with locks which can be disengaged to rotate the screen. Good luck finding something like that though, maybe if you dig through presentation monitors accessories you might find something akin to this.

Also, this looks like one of those things someone might put on kickstarter. It isn't conceptually impossible, actually quite easy, just need a very robust and reliable design.

I apparently didn't read the title well enough. For a HDTV, yes, you need a mountable stand that can rotate. They aren't cheap though: https://www.wallmountworld.com/Rotating ... rotate.htm. This video talks all about it and shows it in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LgJm2BKsnyc

This doesn't really help with big HDTVs, but if you want to use a PC monitor (up to 27") then I use one of these. Simply mount it to the back of a desk: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01IW ... UTF8&psc=1

This was $73 last year when I bought it, hopefully you can find it for around that still (looks like eBay has it for $75). It has a 49" TCL 5-Series on it right now which weighs 26 pounds. The stand is rated for 55 pounds. It doesn't have a stop for the TATE/Portrait position so you have to eyeball how level it is but doesn't bother me much at all. Had to tighten the allen key for tension after 6 months but haven't touched it since (it determines how easy it is to rotate and angle it).

You can briefly see it here at 2:50

For monitors desktop stands w/ rotation go up to 32"

For TVs I've seen stands similar to desktop's up to 42"

And mobile stands (carts, trolleys) up to 70"

Maybe it is possible to adapt a 360° rotule to the 42" at least, IIRC someone had a 'tate tv cart' here, a long time ago though.

Mine is up to 48" and 25kg. I have it for like a year or so, and I'm realy happy with it. You can obtain them quite easily here in Europe. You can buy them in like every major electronics store, and they are all over at local auction sites.

This is the one that I've got:

I have a rotating wall mount that will rotate CCW up to 90 degrees. I got mine a few years ago when you couldn't really find them at all, and paid a pretty penny for it. This is the one I got https://www.wallmountworld.com/Rotating ... rotate.htm and will take up to a 60 inch set, I have a 55 inch on it.

It works great and I've had no issues with it. Only possible issue is if you have a game that only rotates clockwise then this won't help.

I've seen some people talk about this one on Amazon, but I've never used it personally and it is much cheaper.

LOL, you guys have some fancy set-ups! I just have some blue tack on the bottom of the TV, and it sits on a coffee table against the wall. :)
