    First of all, there seems to be a *tiny* bit of discoloration on the top-center of my HDTV. Is there any way to fix this?

    Secondly, I bought a Rio DVD/VHS/5.1 speaker combo. When I lay the center speaker across the top, the *tiny* bit of discoloration increases. I can't find any official specs from Rio about this product, since they've discontinued it, but nowhere on the box or in the manual does it speak of "unshielded speakers". Is there a better place to put my center speaker? I was thinking up behind the TV on the wall.

    Any help here would be very much appreciated, as always [​IMG]

    That the discoloration increases when you place that HTiB's center-channel unit on top of your display tells you it is not effectively shielded. And from my experience, once magnetically induced chroma distortion has affected a direct-view display's screen, it's permanent. You can try having the set degaussed, but I don't think it will help.
