Hello, I took home a 40Z and a PS3 from work today. I must say it looks pretty amazing after some minor adjustments. Even though we are running an HD signal through component in the store, it does this set no justice at all (i guess cus its split a million times, of course). I mean SD stuff isnt all that great, but show me an LCD set that is. As far as the sparkle, yeah its there if you stare at a black screen for a few minutes, and it lasts for like (.05 seconds)? No big deal for me, i'm very happy so far.
I just have 2 questions about the remote (which by the way is a hell of alot better then the 650/750 remote)
Can this remote somehow be programmed to control the blue ray funtions of the PS3 or am i stuck using the controller or buying the dedicated remote?
Also, can i somehow make the volume default to my yamaha reciever no matter what mode the remote is in?
Normally i never use the original remote for a TV, but this one seems to control everything i need on my cable box and reciever so maybe now i will
