I've got to agree with Icaillo and Bob.

Re: Can I place a tv outside

Guys I am resurrecting this old thread that I started awhile back. I may be ready now to go ahead and get a 32 to 37 inch tv for my covered patio.
I know from the comments a regular tv most likely won't last long being outdoors but it occurred to me this idea.
I plan on placing the tv on a wall mount and just simply place the tv outside only when watching it and later removing it so basically going back and forth.
Is this feasible or is it a hassle removing it from the wall mount all the time?
Also can the tv stand weather in the 30's even for 3 hours like when watching a game or is that too long outside?

Operation in the 30s probably wouldn't be so much a problem (I don't know how the LCD panel would react since LCD switching time increases at low temperatures), but moving the TV back and forth is asking for trouble since a cold TV would be a moisture magnet when brought into a warm area. All that shaking when mounting and de-mounting wouldn't be beneficial either.
