Oh, also, it looks closer to the wall in that pic that in really is. There is about 4 inches from the wall on it's side and a good amount of room behind it. And I moved the Wii remote holder closer to the TV and farther away from the Wii U.

My new Wii U isn't freezing nearly as much as my old one. The two freezes yesterday only make the total like 3. And those 2 happened in the same spot, while trying to update my Nintendo TVii stuff like my provider and all that good stuff. I think the pages just didn't load right or something. Even though my new Wii U only did it like 3 times it still pisses me off cause I sent my old one in to FIX that problem...

Still seems to close, IMO, especially from behind it. That's the problem my PS3 had when it kept freezing. If I were you, I'd swap it's place with the Antenna and Yoshi statue and move it forward a little more.

Yeah, what Canis said. Allow the air to circulate all around your Wii U to help keep it cooler. Same idea as wearing no draws on a hot day, you know?

To blessed to be stressed.
I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

I guess I can try what you guys are saying. But when I feel my Wii U after playing on it, it never even feels warm, it's always really cool to the touch.

Mine is on its side with a wireless headphone dongle sticking out of the front USB port in a wood cabinet with a glass door (closed most of the time) and sits between a 2TB HDD + Wii (on sometimes) ;) I have a fast internet connection that is on 24/7 and the WiiU is on as soon as I'm home for 8+ hours every night and even more on weekends. Not a single freeze or crash... Am I doing something different compared to everyone else?

Bad luck? I have (local) friends who haven't had their Wii U's freeze at all. 360 was crap in that regard, my first two 360s only lasted a week (third one was the charm), the RROD was a major offender. This? I think it's less widespread than you realize, the people with no issues would likely not speak up as often as the ones with problems. Personally, after the updates my freezing lowered dramatically. And by that, I mean that now Darksiders II is the only title I get ocassional freezing with. Because of the improvement (originally all my games froze at least once), I would argue Nintendo HAS been addressing the freezing problem in their updates, they just aren't advertising it because all that does is further the complaints when the fixes don't help every case. There are likely different reasons for the various freezing. If you're avoiding your system entirely because of the freezing, I'd say that won't help your problem. Let the system have it's freezes, keeping the components active by regular use could help if anything internally is running into a problem, like something getting stuck. If you ARE continuing use and the freezing is really that often and with lots of different software (as some software is just buggy), then it seems like you're just getting faulty systems. Bad luck. Also though, it could be a problem with the discs, how many games have you tried? Either way, if the April patch doesn't help, contact Nintendo again. Not everyone is having such often freezing, so clearly you just have rotten luck. It's your choice whether to abandon Nintendo over that or try again, but considering you have free warranty you might as well give them more chances to get it right. This is the main reason for warranties, all hardware (or even software) has a chance of being faulty, warranties are to make sure buyers can get a working product, no matter how long that takes.

Yep I agree with Canis here as well, and in all honestly what do you have to lose by moving it except for your freezing problem. Also check the temperature in your room as well and with that tv you have it does generate alot of heat I know cause I have the exactly same tv only bigger. Also you said that you live in Wisconsin now I am not sure where you are but the parts that I have been in did have high humidity that could add to your problem as well.
