Hi Cam,

First off that is one beautiful TV you have, colour me green.

As far as I know the VESA specs apply to the distance between mounting holes, depth of mounting holes, and the weight that the mount will hold. I wouldn't recommend a VESA mount for a non-VESA spec tv, if there was any damage to the TV I think you would be out of luck with the warranty.

I don't understand why all manufacturers do not adhere to this spec... other than the the fact that they would like to sell you their overpriced mount.

Sorry, I haven't been much help, a post on AVS may be of more benefit, good luck.

I think in this case, it is the size of the TV and the weight. I am thinking not too many people would be looking to mount a 58" TV to the wall, it weighs in at 136lbs.

Just did some checking and it seems many of the wall mounts capable of handling the weight are also non-vesa able as well, so it seems to be no big deal whether or not a TV is Vesa compliant.

You kidding, Jay? We have a 60" plasma wall mounted at the office, and we just had a 65" installed in our new president's conference room.

Ken, I was speaking more in reference to the need for a TV to be vesa compliant with respect to wall mounts etc., as my edited post now shows and I stil think many with a 58" and up would be more afraid of them crashng to the ground in a home environment. I know I would be after seeing my 'little' 40" LCD wall mounted and the strain the backing cover is taking from the mounting holes.

Oh, we definitely don't use VESA mounts like your standard computer monitor has. And ours is mounted to a steel plate in the wall, so I guess you have a point there. ;\)

Thanks for the input regarding the wall mount guys. I was up today and I have a couple more questions if you could help me out please.

My mom was switching DVDs players for me this afternoon, and she accidentally unplugged my satellite receiver and as soon as it came unplugged, everything (my receiver and TV) that was plugged into the same power bar shut down and the power bar turned off. We plugged the satellite receiver into a different power bar, and turned the power bar back on, and everything is now up and running okay. Any idea what caused this?

Also, I was going through the Denon GUI for literally 2-3 minutes, and there is a very faint image of it continually on my screen. This is the second time that this has happened from using the GUI for a couple minutes. I don't imagine that this is normal. Could there be something wrong with my plasma screen?

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again

Don't be afraid, mine has been running good so far. The pic on this 720P set is fantastic.

Cam, are you certain the main power switch wasn't turned to the off position on the power bar.

absolutely positive that the power switch was on. I have my Denon, TV, and satellite receiver plugged into the same power bar. It's like it tripped the power bar off when it was unplugged. Very weird.
