The OP is aware that they have them, just trying to reuse what he already has

flat screen outside?

Yeah, i'm gonna go with just the hanging tv mount...thing that sucks too, i already bought a mount for the tv, a swivel one (tilt and pan) but it just bolts into the wall...hmmmm...now i need to figure out how to make that work with a piece of rigid conduit mounted to the ceiling.

I'm sure i can figure something out :D

I'll post some pictures once i get everything done

Tripflex -- how did it go? I'm thinking of doing something similar to reuse an existing flatscreen. Hoping between the roof and perhaps getting a cover will be enough (I live in CA so only have to contend with occasional rain and morning moisture).

Try www.sunbriteTV.com They make TV's designed to be mounted outdoors. My company has installed them in stadiums and schools where they are mounted year-round in below freezing temps and in summertime heat.

A great option would be to buy a viewsonic tv projector for $400 bucks and project a 10ft wide screen at night. Backyard Movie nights!

I keep a flat screen on the front (screened) porch for the Summer. Been doing it for years now with no issues. I have a flat screen at the cabin as well which stays there all Winter. No problems with freezing. We just warm it up for a few hours before firing it.

As long as it doesn't directly get rained on don't worry about it.

I moved a 7 year old Samsung 40" LCD on the screened in porch during the summer last year. It stays out there from mid April until November, and we used it just about every evening we watch TV last summer. Cincinnati get's pretty humid too, and I haven't had an issue. Mounted it to the brick wall with a swivel mount from Amazon with the top at about 6.5' high. I'm actually getting ready to move it back from my bedroom to the porch this week.
