    I'm just fitting a Finlux 22" TV into our Burstner and the way that the bracket is organised (it's a pull down one) means that the connections are compromised by the main body of the bracket (it has an offset mounting plate). I really need some right angle adaptors for the aerial and the DC lead. I have found a right angle UHF adaptor but can't find one for the 12V DC lead. It is a circular connector with four pins, one slightly offset. Does anyone know if such a thing exists? I don't know if the DC connector is proprietory to Finlux though. I just may have to adapt the existing cable which at the moment has a 45 degree cable outlet.

    That sounds like it could well be proprietary. Might be worth asking Finlux if they have anything.

    It seems that the 12V connector is a mini DIN type but not found any 90 degree versions. Have ordered up a UHF elbow which is the more critical one. I've set the TV forward of the bracket by half an inch by using a couple of spacers. I've also taken the opportunity to angle the set forward slightly (with angled spacers) as the viewing angle is better. The 12V connector does not foul the bracket now but the UHF connector does. So hopefully sorted when the UHF elbow arrives.

    For the mini DIN right angle plug try

    http://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/din-connectors/0776173/

    The part number is 776-173.

    Don't be put off by the picture of a 3-pin plug, RS use the same picture no matter how many contacts. Just look at the spec list and make sure Number of Contacts = 4.

    No.
    The one that came with my Finlux has the four-pin plug slightly angled, but not enough to help the OP. The supply end has a screw-off tip that probably allows it to also be used with a Hella-style socket rather than the more common cigarette-lighter type?
