My Sony 51" HDTV model # KP-51WS520 DOESN'T FIT IN MY BASEMENT! LoL i'm heart broken. The TV just would not make the turn through the doorway to my basement.

The guy said the 46" should fit, so now i have to go return this and order the Sony KP-46WT520. Ugh.

No dough to get a flat screen or LCD so i'm stuck with the bigger projection if i want my wide screen HDTV.

Can you do anything to make it fit?
Remove a door or window?
Don't give up without a fight or you will look at the 46" and wonder if there was a way to get the 51"in.

Door was already off before they came. My basement has the standard small rectangle sized windows, so nothing to do there.

The only way to have gotten it in was to cut the wall, cut a hole in the floor above or blow a hole in the foundation. :angry: :thumbsdown: :D

So yeah i'm screwed and there's no way to get that sucker in. The 46" model isn't too bad, but it's just frustrating not being able to have the one i originally wanted. Oh well.

Yeah ... What Mark said: Get yourself a front projector, like the Infocus 4805, and you can have a 96" wide picture from something that weighs just 7 pounds!

BTW ... I had the exact same problem you had when I tried to cram my 55" Pioneer RPTV into my basement den. The Infocus X1 more than solved the problem. And after experiencing front projection, I'll never go back to something as small as 55"!

Another vote for a Front Projector. I started with a 46", it's small, you won't be happy.

I'm a front projector guy, but isn't there some way to partly dismantle the RPTV and re-assemble it in the basement?

We had to take our out of the box outside to fit it through the door. It was a 51" and it just barely made it.

The HT gods are looking out for you. I wouldn't even consider putting anything but a front projector in a basement. Perfect environment.

51" or a 120" It's a easy choice for me.

LoL thanks for the suggestion of the front projector folks, but it's just not feasible.

Some good news though i caved in and got the Sony WEGA KF-50WE610 50'' LCD TV and it will defintely fit.

A tad bit pricier, but not budget blowing and sweet as hell. New delivery date of Tuesday. Can't wait!

The delivery man almost made me pass out. The first thing he said was i'm not sure if this is going to fit! LMAO i stopped breathing for a second. But then when it was out of the box it went down nice and smooth.

Can't wait to hook this puppy up! Time to go put together the tv stand first though.
