Will heat from TV harm DVDs?
Here's an odd question for some expert.
I'm storing my DVDs on the bookshelf behind my TV. Is this a bad idea? Is there any kind of heat or electronic emmission problem that might harm my collection if they're stored there? There's about 10 or 12 inches between the back of the TV and the bookshelf.
Thanks for any answers here.

Unless your television is on fire, you should be fine.

I don't see any problems.

Just a thought here, let's see if anyone agrees...

I would think that the plastic window (inlay cover) on the dvd cases would warp and deform at a lower heat than that which would damage the discs. You could use that as an indicator.

Okay. Thanks. Just didn't want to destroy a couple of hundred dollars worth of DVDs.

The heat given off from your TV is tiny when compared to the heat it will absorbed while being played in your DVD player. Sometimes mine come out warm.

I agree <B>icondude</b>. I noticed this specially when playing long movies. It was what I though to be very warm.
