    I just installed a C31 Client which I had planned on just having sit on top of a wall mounted TV. I purchased 90 degree adapters for the coax and hdmi - but I was surprised to see that the power connection actually protrudes a couple of inches straight back

    Does anyone know of a 90 degree adapter or some other option. It is certainly not the end of the world - but I would like to have it sit further back...

    Have you tried letting the C31 sit vertically instead of horizontally, and hiding it behind the TV? Many people have posted that the IR receiver on it is pretty good and it will still get a signal if it is hidden behind the TV (sees the signal bouncing off the walls/ceiling).

    You may want to look into a mounting kit once they're available.

    I like the way it looks just sitting on top of the tv like that. I see they do have 90 degree adapters - it will just be a matter of finding the correct one. Also I already purchased the 90 adapters for the hdmi and coax

    I really find it hard to believe that DTV would make such a small unit like this and that have that stupid power cord...

    I need something like this - I was hoping someone has already been down this road and knew which one to buy

    It looks like one that is in that link I posted.
    You'll just have to know what size is used.
    Typically, they are sized by the voltage of the equipment.

    Or he could just get an RF remote & not even have to worry about the IR range; they can easily be had for less than $20... ;)

    +1. The C31 supports RF as well, if I'm not mistaken.

    I hear that Velcro would work.:)

    Yes, it's already integrated in the C31, hence my previous suggestion of getting an RF remote... ;) ;)

    I haven't heard anything about this lately...everyone I've spoken to has been using velcro. It's light enough where it will hold on to the back of a TV with nothing else but that.
