Monoprice has some good cables for reasonable cost
For long distances, I'd recommend the new RedMere cables ...

So far so good with new cables. The RedMere is best for long runs and directly from the source to display, not the intermediate cables. That is according to the monoprice chat help desk.

This sucks. My 70in is unrepairable as well. Dammit I love this TV. Glad it was still just shy of warranty expiring. Only thing to replace it with was a Samsung 64F8500. My new TV comes Tuesday. I know I'm going to miss those 6 inches grrrrrrrrr. I would've held out for the lg 77in OLED, but that price! Why is there nothing else good at 70in......

Maybe the new Vizio P series 70" coming out on the 23rd. We'll know how good it is or isn't when we get our meters and eyes them.

Semper Fidelis Marine.

*Just turn the Active Contrast to "Off"... That is the culprit.

Backlight 3
Contrast 33
Brightness 0
Color +2
Tint 0
Sharpness +1
Color Temp - Mid-Low
ME - 120low
Pcp - On
Active Contrast - On
Gamma 0
Film - Off
DNR - Auto
Mono - Off

I used to have IVC set to 'Local Dimming'.

I didn't have tv long b4 switching from LD>Adv low. Wifey likes the extra pop that 'Adv Low' gives.

Thinking maybe I should try reverting to LD & see of this anomaly rears its glittery head again?

I'm going to repurpose my 70" for a conference room at my workplace. What would be a fair price that I should on the books for the transfer? I bought it when they first came out in 2012, iirc. Thanks!

^ Do a Google search you may find used for sale on ebay. 6 months or so ago there were 2 70" listed as used for sale on Amazon. Price as I remember was around $7k.

I did an ebay search. The prices seemed really high. So I figured I get a reality check here, but it sounds like they may not be that out of line. Thanks!
