If you didn't have cable that would make things easier. And if you didn't insist on a corner mount.

I had it not in the corner when we first moved in, but the room is long and narrow so the corner gives more viewing angles where having it flat against the wall basically gives one good viewing spot. Also, the modem would still have to be there unless I moved it to a different cable line upstairs.

ARC is making my new TV setup possible, but I'm also sad I had to change things.

My TV is across the room from my receiver. There is a single HDMI cable going from the TV to the receiver. Previously I had all my devices plugged into the receiver and that would switch inputs while TV stayed on HDMI 1 the entire time.

The problem with this is the cable going across the room isn't 4k. Im using the old HDMI via ARC to still control sound, but now I need to use the TVs HDMI inputs. The issue here is i had game consoles in the AV closet plugged into the receiver, now I need to figure out how to plug those directly into the TV that is 30 feet away.

I want to get a working steam link and just keep it plugged in behind the TV. That isn't 4k supported tho :(

Got my steam link working and behind the TV. The issue was the controller dongle but I have a workaround.

I bought a 50 ft HDMI cable to run from my gaming PC to the TV. Getting HDR to work on it is going to be the death of me. Idk if it's the cable, tv, or GPU. I fix one problem and it introduces another. I may just stick to 4k 30hz.

I did flip to 1080p and my eye couldn't tell a difference at 15-20 feet.

Bump soon for wags.

My new TV no longer feels new and special. It just feels like the size that has always been down there. Same with the bedroom TV that is 50% bigger, I already can't remember what it was like before.

Basically saying a new TV only fills the void in your life for about 4 weeks.
