Does TV geometry change with positioning?

    I've noticed that when I moved my TV from one side of my room to other, the geometry was worse! before, it was pretty straight, but now that i've moved it, there is a noticeable tilt on the right side, both with DVD's and regular TV. What the heck?!?!

    TV's, or to be more specific, the CRTs inside the TV, are susceptible to the effects of the earth's magnetic fields. When a television is manufactured, it is actually "tweaked" for the region it is to be shipped to. A TV supposed to be sent to South America would not look very good if shipped to Canada.
    The effect is most often in terms of geometry. I recently moved my RPTV from an east/west orientation to a north/south orientation, and I now have a severe bend down one side of the screen which will need to be corrected.
    Nothing wrong with the TV then, just a byproduct of the natural world. [​IMG]
