What happened to you, not inspecting the TV before signing for it, and then later finding damage, could have happened no matter who you bought it from. And yes, once you sign for it, theoretically, it's no longer the sellers problem if it was damaged in some way inside the box. Some sellers will even make you try to file a damage claim with whoever it was the shipped it, needless to say, that is not a fun thing to do, and they will more than likely also try to refuse the claim.
