I may move it to the house in New York, but yes it won't be moving much for awhile.

Remember to use a CRT at least once every six weeks or so if you plan on leaving it in active storage (AKA Plugged into the wall in a room) or at least once every 6 months if it's left in cold storage (Basement, closet, etc...) as this prevents the tube and flyback converter from going bad due to disuse.

It won't be plugged in. And I'll be keeping it on plastic (on top of carpet) to prevent any static shock etc. So you say to plug it in and turn it on every now and again? Anything else I should know regarding television care?

Oh and I've left instructions for someone in my family to thoroughly clean the contacts of an NES game and then insert it into the TV to prevent any dust from getting into the system (72-pin connector?).

Yes, be VERY careful moving it, the feet are extremly fragile. They are only there for balance which is why most of them are snapped off that you see pop up on ebay.

If you're going to have them do this, just slide it in, don't push it down. If its pushed down and sits, its just going to bend the pins. I imagine opening this thing up to bend the pins tighter again is a major pain.
