    In order to make it around a curve at the bottom of my stairs, the TV would have to be brought down on its end so that it would be tall and narrow. Is this safe to do? Will it screw up the set (assuming it isn't jarred too badly)? Thanks!

    Nevermind. I'm an idiot. The TV is as tall as it is wide. So putting it on its end doesn't help at all. Can an admin please delete this thread if possible?

    For what it matters...
    I had to turn my Toshiba TW56F80 on its side to get it into my basement. It was about 2" shorter this way if I remember correctly, which allowed me a grand total of 0.5" of clearence of the ceiling half way down the stairs.
    Afterwards, I sat it back on its rollers, and it has worked fine ever since. No damage done.

    I had to turn my 56H80 on its side to get it up some stairs. No damage done, been working flawlessly for 7 months now.
