delivered last night all seems fine- running a break in disk as we speak -just in case (not sure if it is really necessary)
aside from less inputs - only one issue showed up with
rogers digital - now using HDMI -
there is a slight echo delay when I use the tv sound and the digital out from 8642
to my AVR Sony strdb930 - did not have this before when using Hdmi/DVR cable
to my previous Hitachi 50v500 - I like to use the TV sound sometimes to supplement
voices - as I have found on some shows on rogers dialogue seems muffled .
what is funny is the shows I recorded prior to last night don't have this issue???
anyway will update as I go - picture looks pretty darn good!!!
The previous TV was probably not doing much processing, hence no synch issues. Most people have sync (echo) issues if they try to run the TV and the AVR, however a proper optimization of the AVR and speakers (especially the center channel) should provide you with good dialogue, etc - without the need for TV speakers.
will probably cease the break in today -
the picture on this set without tweaking is very good
could not detect this (buzzing sound) many people have mentioned
remote has nice button but works "poorly" - usually requires two
pushes to get anywhere on the menues etc -
I programmed some into my harmony and the tv seems to react faster when the harmony is used .
will be connecting vga computer cable today to see how that works
used madcatz component adapter for wii to out to component
seems o so far
