First of all, a plasma TV is filled using a gas technology which will not withstand hot and cold environments. An LCD TV is filled using liquid crystal (sand like) technology, which is much better for outdoor use. Secondly, indoor TVs are not weather-proofed, so moisture, humidity, and rain would enter the TVs interior and cause the internal circuitry to short out. Insects can also get into the interior and they are also a conductor of electricity and can cause a circuit to short out. Excessive dust will also damage the indoor TV. Thirdly, you wont even be able to see the picture of an indoor TV in the daylight hours if it is installed outdoors. And last, but not least, the outdoor elements, such as UV, ice, salt air & etc., will degrade the indoor (unprotected) TV very quickly.
