I am trying to locate a motor system that would work in an entertainment cabinet. The idea would be to use a remote control to open the doors, which would then slide back inside the cabinet, bring the TV out and rotate, etc etc. Anyone know where I might find the motors and tracks for such a thing as this? Thanks.

There used to be an advertiser for this in FWW. I’ll search some back issues to see if I can find it. is one. You can google Motorized TV Lift for more options.

I like the idea. That Auton link Tom posted seems to have what you might need. It’s gonna be expensive though.
