A little update on my IR board repair. It looks like they are not going to be able to get the part (not unexpected). The tech still needs to come out and confirm the IR receiver is dead (I already know it is).
If I do go down the replacement route, I don't know what they will offer me (they claim they do it based on features, not price). I know the latest Vizio P series has been mentioned, as well as the Sony 940D and Z9D. Are those the only ones that are really comparable? Also, the 940D is a 75" which is too big for my space (I've got the 60" Elite). Is the 930D (65") the same quality? (edit: I just started reading some reviews - the 930D doesn't have the same backlighting system as the 940D so it is not the same level of quality unfortunately)
Of course the Vizio R series and the LG OLEDs also look great, but I don't think BB will let me go that high (without paying a differential). Maybe via the Open Box route though...
Are there others I should consider as a viable replacement that I have a reasonable shot at convincing BB to give me?
