    That counts as TV.

    I think you should get a late '90s Bigscreen TV, the type that takes up an entire room.

    I mourned the loss of the 17" from their line. Mine died and the replacement is not as good for that purpose.

    Ceramic lidded container:

    Love the way it looks. Remotes would fit. But is it wise to be tossing hard plastic remote controls into a ceramic container all the time? Is there a reason why everyone seems to keep their remotes in wicker?

    Sort of looks like a syringe box.

    A mid-century sterling silver cigarette box would hold a remote or two comfortably.

    We have a somewhat ugly 60" LCD. In a few years we might upgrade it. Maybe when 4k becomes a real thing.

    If you effectively turn it not into a TV when not in use have you not in fact made it "go away?"

    Examples, please.

    I would think any sort of metal would get dinged up and scratched too easily. Not sure if ceramic is any better in that regard, but seems like it would be.

    That's what I am waiting for. Vox has one, he said it is ho-hum, but then again there isn't anything in that format yet to truly test it out.

    No, I mean, become as if nothing were there at all. The wall could rotate, or the TV could get pulled up into a slot in the ceiling. Something like that.

    Gome thinks he can just use a projector in a normally lit room for regular TV watching. He is wrong.

    My sister's family just got the 4K Sony XBR. What little 4K content out there is absolutely gorgeous. The difference is real.

    However, it cost them a fortune. I advised them to do it because they didn't care about price and wanted a TV that would be good another 10-15 years. 4K is going to happen--how or when exactly is all that is left to be determined.

    Put a piece of flannel suiting on the bottom. Better would be the rubbery stuff that is supposed to go between rugs and the floor to keep the rug from sliding. Easy to cut to size.

    The only time I see rotating walls are in ConTrad home libraries.
