vertical adjusting TV mount
I'm trying to either come up with a DIY design or find something at a reasonable price to purchase to vertical adjust a 40" LCD TV. I need to be able to vertically adjust it "on the fly", so when I'm playing a game, I can lower it to a comfortable position or the few times we watch TV in bed, raise it to be seen more comfortably in bed.
Dynamicmounting.com has one that would be GREAT....except for the $500 price tag which is bout how much the TV costt.
I had an idea to use a PVC tee slipping over a metal pipe for a main support (more as a stability support) until I started fine tuning the design and realized that may not work.

it would have to be counterbalanced to essentially zero effective weight at the hinging, and adjustable. this is not a trivial project. such a mount would probably weigh twice the TV weight, so you would have to open the wall and essentially place a header in there to lag it into.
