Anybody know if there is someone in NZ who would supply a bracket for attaching an HP mini PC to the back of an LG C2.

 

The HP appears to have standard 100mm spacing for the bolts while the LG looks to be maybe 300-400mm.

 

I know there is a Vivo bracket that will do it but it looks like it would have to come from Amazon.

I had a very similar requirement a few years ago and made a simple adapter out of 3mm aluminium plate. Of course that depends on your DIY skills. You could probably also make it out of 10mm plywood or similar.

 

Otherwise, have searched like this?





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Are you after VESA adaptors? They are very common. Just search for VESA adaptor.

PB Tech have heaps




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

Unsure if I am reading this correctly, but assuming you just want to hide the PC behind the TV,
I have connected many set top boxes behind TVs using long cable ties, through the spare holes in the TV brackets arms.

They are but they want a 300/400 mm vesa adapter that has a 100mm vesa adapter hanging off the side that they can bolt the mini PC to.

 

They are not that common, I struggled to find something this morning as most were for behind monitors

This is the sort of adapter it needs.

 

VIVO Steel Vesa LCD Led Tv Mount Adapter Plate Bracket for Screens 32 to 55 Inches, Conversion Kit for Vesa Up to 400X200mm (Mount-Ad4X2) : Amazon.com.au: Electronics

 

The TV is on a stand, not on the wall, so there is nothing on the back of the TV to attach the PC to with cable ties.

 

There are many adapters on the PB Tech site but I didn't see any like this.

 

Apparently all LG C2 TV'S up to 85 inch have a 300x200mm hole spacing so I can attach the plate to the TV and with the addition of some spacers attach the PC to the 100m holes on the adapter.

Do you have some DIY skills and gear - or a mate who does? Would be very easy to make if you were OK with plywood rather than metal.

 

Ply from Bunnings then a handsaw and a drill to make eight holes - four for the TV and four for the PC. Then the correct screws - M4/6/8 or whatever. Also inexpensive.

At $47 delivered for the metal plate it's hardly worth it. Probably costs me $10 to get to my nearest Bunnings and back.

 

But I agree. If I had the materials hanging around I would give it a go.
