The mounts which are displayed here in the pics are good and also with good design like this only even I have found a company which is having LCD brackets according to TV/system model no and also he is having a great quality products. You Can get still more information about Plasma TV Brackets which I browsed on internet can fetch you help Another piece of advice would be to mount the bracket to a solid wall.

television brackets can be fitted to make efficient use of space in any room

HII dear readers!! i would like to say
few words about dialog TV which i have found to be accurate and needs to be verified.

1) is the Dialog T.V gets disturbed by weather conditions like rain and bad weather...??

2) is dialog TV transmitted Digitally or analog..?

3) also last is it really Satellite
TV. directly to dish from Sat or being transmitted by a main dish to

I hope if the Admin of this blog also can comment and display my message as it is written by me.

LANKA INFO said...

@ Impaetial:

1 - Yes, its n common DTH Problem. however u can minimize this issue using larger dish.

2 - 100% Digital

3 - Yes 100%

The Direct-To-Home (DTH) service is a digital satellite service that provides television services direct to subscribers anywhere in the country. Since it makes use of wireless technology, programs are sent to the subscriber's television direct from the satellite, eliminating the need for cables and any cable infrastructure. This is particularly valuable in remote and difficult to reach areas where cable and in many cases, terrestrial television services are poor or nonexistent.

DTH services also provide the finest of picture and sound quality which is considered to be second to none worldwide. Now surround sound, home theaters, live concerts and daily television programming are all delivered to your home with the same quality as any modern movie theater.

@ lanka info

rain fade is theoritically possible wirh any DTH. but all indian ones are stable when raining. i have big tv and its perfect even with heavy rain. dialog uses very high compression so it fades even when rain is miles away.
dialog is digital but quality wise very poor. this also is because of compression. DTV picture quality is no whwre near indian DTH, and LBN or PEO TV.

TV producer says Dialog TV ran tele-drama without permission

By Natasha Gunaratne
A Sri Lankan television producer and actor has filed an intellectual property rights case against a television station airing his teledrama without proper licensing and violating the Intellectual Property Act and is asking for Rs.3.5 million as compensation.

The plaintiff, Glenroy Anthony Soysa, more popularly known as Tony Soysa, filed his case in the High Court of the Western Province against Dialog Television (Pvt) LTD and Onair World Ceylon (Private) Ltd.
According to court documents, Mr. Soysa spent Rs.1.3 million of his own money in funding the entire production of a teledrama called 'Bambara Asapuwa'.

The Plaintiff stated that the teledrama constitutes an 'audiovisual work' in terms of the Intellectual Property Act No. 36 of 2003 and the ownership of the economic rights, including the broadcasting rights, in respect of the said teledrama, are vested in the Plaintiff as the Producer thereof, as specifically provided for in Section 14(5) of the said Act, and as such, the Plaintiff's said right(s) in the teledrama "Bambara Asapuwa", are protected under the said Act.

In or around January 1993, the Plaintiff entered into an agreement with the owners/operators of MTV television channel in Sri Lanka, which is part of the Maharaja Organization, in order to license, inter alia, the broadcasting/telecasting rights in respect of the said teledrama to the owners/operators of the said MTV channel for a period of two years at the rate of Rs. 55,000 per episode. Upon the expiry of the two-year period, the master tapes of the teledrama were returned to the plaintiff by MTV.

The Plaintiff states that thereafter, he has not licensed and/or assigned and/or transferred and/or alienated the copyright and/or economic rights in respect of the said teledrama in any manner, to any other person up to date but that the master tapes were given to the stations by the person he had entrusted to safeguard them.

Is this having an effect on future programes?
