OLED TV Ventilation

I bought a new Sony XBR-65A1E OLED TV & was wondering if I cover it with a sheet or cloth when I'm not using it will effect ventilation. It seems Sony was adamant about mentioning adequate ventilation a number of times in the in, don't cover it with anything!

Re: covering

- What would be your reason to cover it?
- When it's off, it can be covered, since there is nothing warming it up inside. But be sure to uncover it before viewing Wink

I'm going with do not cover. Why?

In reply to: OLED TV Ventilation

Because smart TVs can power up to check schedules, record or such, you can't cover them. Sure you could cut the power but there is a reason to not cover its vents.
