My advice is to find your new TV now, go camping, and worry about the settlement later. If they find the old one, get rid of it and take the loss and move on.
I have to agree here. I had an Infiniti years ago that was stolen. They recovered it, a couple of punks were using it as a get-a-way car. I tried to get insurance to total it, they ended up reprinting the entire car, all new interior and 4 new wheels and tires. Total repair cost was upwards of $20k. Car was never the same after. I traded it in 6 months later and took a bath. It was worth it to get out of the car.
I hope if it ever happens again that they destroy it, I don't want the headache.
