    for instance to change the boards?

    It says so in the manual but I just wanna check before I waste my 2,200 euros... :D

    I thought one was NEVER allowed to put a plasma screen horizontal, even not for 10 secs.

    Never carry one in a car horizontal, but other than that, fine, I do it every day, so does every other installer.

    You're so fussy Horny. I have an old duvet I use, no idea if it's lint free! Stops the scratches on wood floors though.

    There is that, but it's also that there is better access to the slots from the back.
