    I just bought this panasonic 53, hope I made a good decesion....its the PT-53WXD63 with the built in tuner even though I think im gonna get voom and wont need it. Anyhow.....after ordering of course I started measuring....(oops wrong order I know) and Im nervous about getting the set into my tv room......very tight turn! Is it bad for a set to be tiled in the side if thats what it would take to get it into the room.....im super nervous.....stupid I know I just really wanted this set!

    Let me know if its ok to do this...

    thanks!

    I actually install HT gear, and on occasion have to deliver TVs. It is my experience that you can tilt RPTVs, sometimes we actually have to turn them on their side to get them in. As long as you make slow (ie not jerky or jostling) movements, you will be OK. You'll more than likely want to adjust the convergence afterwards. Just remember, dont put pressure on the screen.

    PS: dont let it drop or it will be very angry with you...

    Hey Tim, this subject comes up from time to time and it's something I may be doing in the next few months are there any other tips you or some of the other guru's can offer on moving a RPTV?
    Thanks Jim
