How/where did you mount/place your dvd/blueray player? Trying to figure out a handy place.

I killed two birds with one stone and just bought a TV with a built in DVD player.. While it was a bit more expensive than a plain TV it was still cheaper than having to buy two components.. It also eliminated the hassle of where to put the DVD player and having to deal with all the associated cables.. You can just see the DVD slot on the left side of the TV in the pic below..

I didn't want to give up valuable cabinet space, so I installed mine quite similar to CC John's setup. Underslung it by using a marine grade mounting box, (with a section of the back cut out to facilitate running wiring, antenna lead, and to the TV and speakers, and also to dissipate heat via the now exposed heat sink on the back of  the radio.) I drilled an 1 1/2" hole behind it and covered the cutout with a rubber grommet to protect the wiring from the edge of the fiberglass. I also wire loomed the wiring bundle to dress it up neatly from the back of the enclosure up into the rear overhead cabinet.

 

Sure would be nice to be able to post some pic's here...  :angry:

CC-John,
I had one of those tvs, but the day that I went to put it in the trailer, it decided not to work! I already had the other tv, so I went and got a 4K blueray DVD player (overkill on a 22! LOL) to use. It is also wifi compatible, so when camping, I can hit the internet.
