Thanks for the input folks. I just used washers that were thick enough to overcome the thickness of the screw head as I didn't want to use a full spacer from the kit.
I will say that I am totally happy with the Kanto PDX650 wall mount from Costco. It's very solid (two double arms) and I got a very good price on it. It is suitable for 32-70 inch models and mounts VESA up to 400x600. The hardware kit that comes with it is the most amazing I've ever seen.
I just watched a little bit of full screen golf before resuming the burn-in and I've got to say the F8500 is very good looking straight out of the box. Perhaps a little bright but very sharp and I don't think I have a dead or stuck pixel or buzzing, at least not yet. I'm thinking I made a good choice. Of course I'm coming from a Panasonic 480p unit I purchased in early 2003 for more than three times the cost of this one and it didn't have a stand, tuner or speakers. Still, it looks good to this day with 13,0000 hours, just lower resolution.
I try some of the settings from that thread after I get the remote programmed.
