Roku TV's----is the distance between the feet adjustable so that I can use my existing TV stand?

Roku TV's----is the distance between the feet adjustable so that I can use my existing TV stand?  Where is this basic info? I want to use my existing TV stand which is 34-35 inches wide. The TV currently on the stand is a Samsung with a single center oriented stand so that is not an issue.  Also, I am disappointed to see that apparently Roku does not provide the ability for a customer to send a question to support by e-mail and receive an answer back from a Roku support person. Whatever....it is what it is.

Re: Roku TV's----is the distance between the feet adjustable so that I can use my existing TV stand?

@oldandcranky, you're question can't really be answered.  There are many models of Roku TVs from many different manufacturers.  Each manufacturer has its own idea of how to implement a stand, but I've never seen a TV with adjustable feet.  Most, if not all, TVs support wall mounting and there are aftermarket stands made to use the mounting points on the back of the TV, so you could convert the TV to a center stand if it doesn't come with one.

If the TV has standard VESA mounting holes in the back (most do), then something like this may work.

To me, that sounds like a 'no'; i.e., "The design doesn't have alternatives to the holes out at the perimeter, but, you may be able to use the holes designed for wall mounting for that purpose".   Also, the fact that something as basic as this, which many people may obviously want to know, isn't mentioned along with the height and width of the panel, suggests that such alternative holes are not part of the design.

@oldandcranky, can you point me to any TV that has this?  As I've said, I've never seen one and I've had a lot of TVs.

Your comment reflects the problem.   This basic info should be easily apparent just as is the height and width.  On ALL brands.  I guess it's because it might steer potential buyers away from that set and possibly from the brand. Not everyone wants to mount their TV on the wall. Obviously.

Most manufacturers web sites have support areas where you can view or download manuals. They may even be linked on product information pages. Some may have dimensions.

I think they went to the feet because they are more stable (children are injured by falling TV's) and cheaper, especially with larger TV's.

Re: Roku TV's----is the distance between the feet adjustable so that I can use my existing TV stand?

Thanks.  I'll just look for a decent Brand that has a 55" with a center positioned stand. I don't care if I have to pay more. I want what I want.  My room layout is such that the chair from which I will be watching faces a corner in the room.....the chair does not face a flat wall.  In any event, I want the TV where I want it. Not simply someplace else because widely spaced feet do not work for me. If they do for others, fine. That's not a concern for me when I'm buying a TV for MY house,---not someone else's.
