Hello everyone, I just ordered a Panasonic TCP55GT50 last night and am very excited. My set will be sitting on a large flat surface but I would like to elevate it slightly in hopes of putting my satellite receiver under one of the sides. I see from the technical sheet that the base is 20.1 x 14.1 inches so my plan is to prepare a slightly larger solid surface for it to sit on.

My question for anyone that has this set currently sitting on a surface, how much clearance is there between the TV and your surface? The satellite receiver runs a bit too hot to keep it with all my other A/V equipment in the cabinet (Dish VIP722) so I hope this is a viable solution.

Thanks in advance!

The specs in the manual (which i linked in the Official GT50 Thread) show that the stand raises the 55GT50 a hair under 2 inches.

55GT50 - 30.3" High x 50.6" Wide x 1.9" thick (height with stand is 32.3")

Thank you very much! I glanced through the manual and didn't see that number!
