I've had my GWII for about a year and a half now and it's still running great! Thought I might've had a problem a coupla months ago when I noticed some strange intermittant color shifts but after doing some research, discovered it was the DirecTv/Tivo system feeding the screen and not the GWII. Whew!!! Meanwhile, I've been trying out Hi-Def cable lately (Adelphia has a no-contract trial, so what the heck) and the few HD channels they offer are amazing to see on that screen. It's what the set was meant for.
But to go along with that great image, I've decided to upgrade my sound system. I've started with a new, larger, center channel from B&W. What a difference, esp. for movies! Like HD for audio! Only problem is where do I put the damn thing? It's 18" wide x 12" deep and 20lbs. -- and that was the SMALLER one!
Underneath the screen it either blocks the components (I have the Sony stand) or slightly higher it blocks the GWII's IR sensor, et al. Obviously it would be best above the screen. But I certainly don't want to teeter it on that narrow rail. I've seen some other brands of RP sets that actually have a shelf and brace that flips up on the back. Anyone have any idea whether such a solution exists for the GWII?
Looking at the back, I notice some threaded screw holes (yes I know in the manual they talk about attaching guy-wires to the wall for stability), but I also notice some other indents and even a small 2x3 panel almost at the bottom of the sloping back. Any idea what this is for? Could it be a possible socket for a shelf brace? It seems to have its cover glued on so I don't want to pry any further than my fingernail will take me.
BTW, the set is free standing away from the wall in a giant loft-style setting so wallmounting or cabinetry doesn't seem to be an option. Any ideas?
