Well guys, This past saturday I installed duvetyne in my 51swz and it was a piece of cake as far the installation went.


When I had finished and was doing the final clean up, I noticed at the top upper left corner of my mirror, a crack "ouch".


I was useing a electric staple gun that hit pretty hard on to the particle board. I also elected to staple the cloth right on to the mirror framing which in hindsite was a bad idea. I bought the tape to border my mirror and did not use it.


Just a word to the wise. Be very careful and think your job out before start.



I can not see any ill effects and I have watched "Virtical Limit" which has some very bright scenes in it.


Just thought I would pass this along for those who are considering "duvetyne". BTW, it really made a difference, BLACKS are BLACK and color seems to be more vivid.


ISF cal. is scheduled for this Sat.

It's quite possible the crack is in an unused portion of the mirror. You could probably tape it off.

Yes Dammit!:D I, believe you are correct...It's about two inches out of the corner. I have looked for signs on my screen but haven't seen anything. Hope I got away with one this time.:D


Man... I ordered 4yds of duve. Have enough left over to do another 51" and probably start on another. I'm gonna give the remainder to the calibrater Sat.

I also ordered 4 yards to do my 51" Hitachi and had 2.5 yards left. For those who are considering doing it (which I highly recommend!) - if you don't make any big mistakes, 2 yards of fabric and 5 yards of tape is all that is required.
