65" TV Arrives:

One day they called me and said: "we have a big package to deliver to you".

I have seen the package earlier at the store and it didn't look very big, when delivered at home it of course look a bit bigger, but not extreme. Checked carefully that there where no damage to the packaging.

Took the TV out of its package and very carefully to not touch the screen, it's very sensitive. Mounted the TV foot with it's screws, still let the plastic protection be left on the TV screen.

Lift it up on the bench, I will move the bench to the left later. But it's too heavy, must empty it before.

Off with the plastic from the TV screen. Connecting all the cables, two HDMI, one from the receiver and one from the HTPC (Home Theatre Personal Computer) , the antenna and the power cable. Looking good!

When looking from the side of the TV you see that it's tilted backwards, because it's supposed to be much lower to the floor. Temporary I installed a distance on the back of the foot to have it in a more comfortable viewing angle.
