I don't think I've ever seen this before.

Better yet if it were on some sort of tilt-out panel, too. Don't want to have to lean over too far. ;)

I always have to reference a picture of the back on another device before I can dig around behind my receiver.

The labels should be backlit.

Genius!

Now they just have to figure out a way to make it legible when reaching back inside a semi-enclosed cabinet full of dust bunnies, that you can barely pull away from the wall, with half the jacks filled, cables everywhere, that your iPhone flashlight can’t penetrate, with a beer in one hand.

THEN they’ll really have something.

I agree, except for the genius part. Reading upside down is a non-issue for me.

I just did this today on an envelope I keep on an upper shelf in a stack of similar sized boxes. It's in a stack of tie boxes, but being an envelope doesn't have an end I can write on. Wrote what tie was in it at the top, with it the envelope vertical. Pulling it out from the stack a little showed that info upside down, so I wrote it again the other way around.

I wish engineering schools did more teaching of design. Was telling my son at dinner about how the LED displays (radio, HVAC, clock, etc.) on my 2003 Audi put out polarized light. Can't read at least half of them when I wear polarized sunglasses, unless I tilt my head at an odd angle. You'd think people making displays for a car would think that someone might wear polarized sunglasses. I've had similar problems on other vehicles with LCD displays.


Good luck.

It works great if you're are reaching and looking at it from above!

I have problems with the polarized glasses issue in one of my cars. I guess it is the MINI. The odometer of the Nissan Quest is unreadable due to the failure of the digital display.

As for the amplifier problem, I wish the backplate was hinged at the top so you could flip it up to see what is back there without having to climb into the cabinet. Lights and mirrors help some but it is still a problem. (Great use for reflective CD/DVDs).

Depending on the location of your TV, plus the fact that your Spouse CANNOT be home, I have removed the entire back wall of my console. The holes provided are a PIA to try to use. Too small and poorly located.

I don't use any bright lights in my "man cave." Paint the back wall of the house Black (just the part of the opening of the console, if you must.

Life is still an adventure!
