    I've a new 36" television coming tomorrow and I'm concerned that it won't fit through the front door. :rolleyes: Has anyone else who has had a 36" television delivered had this problem?

    Or, am I worrying about nothing?

    Colin.

    I had one delivered last year (it went back, long story).

    It would no way fit through the front.

    I had to take off the patio door around the back to get it in.

    Perhaps you can unpack it outside as a lot of the bulk is the packaging.

    It's either going through the front door or it's going back.(no patio door's). Hopefully with the box and all the packaging removed it'll come through. :rolleyes:

    Make sure you got a strong mate to help you, 36" will be very heavy if you have to unpack it on your door step

    Does anyone know if the depth of a television goes up as the screen size increase's? What I mean is, does the depth stay the same, but the length increase's as the overall size of a tv get's bigger?

    I reckon I've got 70cm to play with so hopefully I'm worrying about nothing. :D

    It's still going to have to be unpacked before coming through the door. :laugh:

    The box will be just shy of a metre by 650, so just measure your door aperture and see if it'll go.

    Gerenal rule of thumb is that the bigger a TV screen gets the deeper it gets, especially with CRT. Reason? Focal length of the electron beam and the area (sweep) it has to cover. Projections are slightly different, but still follows the same general rule. My 51" is 570 deep, and the 57", which I considered but didn't go for because it was too difficult to accommodate, was over 600.

    Oh and the weight - expect at least 70 kilos for a 36"!

    If the team delivering it are also installing it they'll be able to work it out, unless your doors are only 2 feet wide!

    Sorry, ive spent the whole afternoon setting up the stand and my sony home cinema in a box and am now at work doing a nightshift until 7.00am

    The delivery men walked in through the door with the box :rotfl: I had about an hour of playing about before I left to come here.

    First thought's are that it's huge against my 28" and take's up a whole corner of my room. Watching dvd's was ok but I was scrutinising the screen close up and not from the distance I'll be watching it from. I mucked about with the setting's and got a decent dvd picture but I'll need to work on the freeview picture as this looked pants.

    I've now set up my Sony DAVS888 home cinema in a box to output progressive scan and the dvd picture is up another notch. With the freeview picture via rgb, I think I'm seeing the limitation's of the freeview signal. Even the BBC channel's which should have the highest bitrate are not excellent.
    Still undecided.
    I think that the dvd picture through component progressive scan is now how I wan't it but the freeview picture will need some more work when I've finished this stint of nighshift's.
