That connection seems to play in stereo only which is discussed in the manual but the manual seems to indicate there may be a way to get 5.1 digital sound out of that output. Any ideas if that is possible?

I would think so, but I really don't know. Is there an option in the Audio menu?

Regarding your BR player, maybe you need to check the Audio setup menu for that, to make sure it is set to output other than HDMI.

You probably checked all that, but just guessing...

I did check all the audio menus in my LG Blu-ray player and it should work without any changes. I have another identical setup that works fine so unless I did something wrong to change it, I can't figure it out.

Never did I think I would give any serious consideration to an LCD for a primary viewing area in my home. I therefore imagine that my decision process is very similar to what you had to go through.

There are a few things I'm still wondering about so I'd welcome your comments. What made you decide on the 632 vs the 73x series? Is your tv part of an AVR-based system and what AVR are you using? Do you have cable or satellite - any issues - I have Directv? Does the TV have any issues with fast-paced live action, sports or fast pans? Have you experienced any of the lip synch problems being discussed in the 73x threads? How far off axis is the tv's acceptable viewing limit in your environment?

I probably will end up with a 70" Sharp but want to be better prepared for to might expect if I do. Thanks

Just to provide another perspective - I was between this set, a Panasonic ST30 and the Sharp 732 and ended up liking the 732 the most. There is a post a few pages back on it if you re interested, but overall I find the 732 to be a better set.

Of course, YMMV - best thing to do is evaluate both sets in conditions similar to your house spot using identical source material. I know that's hard to do, but all three made their way through my house lol

I have noticed that the picture appears very shaky on close up scenes with people running/moving fast. I turned off most of the options in the advanced menu section but the problem persists. It looks like the scenes were done by an amateur hand held camera.

Is this a problem of the very large screen or is there a way to fix this?

I have not noticed this.

Try monkeying with the backlight...

did that during the game had it at -2 put it to +6 made it a little less visible but made the game look to bright and not clear. hate to give this tv up for maybe the 733 or 734 because it has a fantastic picture.

Thanks for your input. I had some time today and began reading posts from page 10 on and saw that you addressed many of my questions in your earlier posts so I really appreciate your willingness to 'retread' old ground.

Unless there is some super compelling price drop in the next 2 weeks, I don't expect to make this purchase until after CES. In any event, I'll definitely post after I've had a chance to spend some quality time with my new (gulp) LED.
destiny 21's Avatar destiny 21 08:29 AM 12-29-2011
i think those settings are for the other 70 inch models we dont have quad pixel plus on the 632

- Mode: Movie
- OPC: Off
- Backlight: +5 (this is not calibrated, per se, and is up to the user to set at whatever level is desired)
- Contrast: +32
- Brightness: +1
- Color: +7
- Tint: +4
- Sharpness: +2
In the Advanced Menu:
- Color Temp: Middle
- Gamma: -2
- Various enhancements, including Film Mode: All OFF

In the A/V sync section, I adjusted the surround sound to a 125ms delay.

I am now running the second WOW disc of HD "eye candy" (all of the various landscape scenes), and it is just utterly stunning. Crazy good!!

Regarding the various "issues," the only one that I really notice is the diminished off-angle viewing, at >30 degrees off-center, but it's not an issue for me, as I am always in the "sweet spot." I have noticed some very minor clouding, slight cross-hatching, slightly darkened corners, at times, but they are barely even noticeable, even when looking hard, and have no impact on the PQ. I consider them non-issues.

Again, this panel blows me away. I highly, highly recommend it!

I also watch hockey, and it looks great to me, without noticeable cross-hatching/diamond shapes. Might be a function of my overall settings...

You will still see the diamonds. It is caused from an uneven backlight and is a hardware issue which can't be fixed by settings or firmware upgrade. Your options are to exchange and hope the replacement isn't as bad.

Thanks, But you are aware that our 623 does not have quad pixel technology. So these settings are useless.

I purchased the 632u 70" from Best Buy over black friday. Unfortunately I notice the diamond patterns/dirty window very clearly during Hockey (Flyers) games.

Has anyone successfully replaced their tv and got rid of the issue? If so, how did you go about replacing yours?

Thanks.

So what are the advantages of the 732/3/4/5 over this set? Since this one has full array led just like those, it seems to me like the 632 would be the better bargain.
Thanks

It sounds as if the 632 has fewer clouding issues, better MLL, and easier to calibrate without that stupid yellow pixel.

Just rewired my audio system. Had the tv output to the receiver through fiber optic. will only allow 3.1. so my options are narrowed down to see if the ps3 can output independently through fiber optic and hdmi to the tv to see if i can avoid lag or to just suck it up and run everything through the receiver. ubfortunately yhe receiver is old and doesnot have hdmi 1.3 might be 1.2 and only has 2 in and 1 out.

There are several posts on this topic in both the 632 and 732 threads. I recommend reading them first - as peoples opinions vary on the subject.

If you have mounted this TV on a wall, what is the distance between the floor and bottom edge of this set?
themoth33's Avatar themoth33 07:23 PM 01-01-2012
Well after much reading pulled the trigger. I am replacing my 3 year 58 inch plasma with this 70. Also moving the penny to the bedroom or great tv!! I will post my experiences once it's delivered and see how it compares to the posted feedback. I'll be placing mine on a stand that sits 36inches high, is this too high? Seems like it will be ok. Same height I had the penny.
ellover009's Avatar ellover009 07:47 PM 01-01-2012
OK more playing around with it, I think I was able to get 5.1 on the ps3 by connecting the audio directly to the receiver through fiber optic, and hdmi to the tv. The audio lag was horrible though hdmi port 2, so I switch the ps3 to hdmi 1 and it was a lot better. So I got the tv though hdm2 and the ps3 hdmi1. Might need to check if my receiver has a voice delay option.

Can some one post their factory default settings for the "User" option on the 70" 632? I just want to make sure that mine are factory before tweaking. Thanks.

Why don't you just set everything back to Default, if that is where you want to start?

Did that a few weeks ago, but when I do that now, the OPC does not come back on (and I was sure that this was defaulted on).

As such, I can't be sure that the following are factory for the "user" settings:

Mode user
OPC off (and I thought this was ON)
Backlight +5
Contrast +30
Brightness 0
Color +2
Tint 0
Sharpness +2
CMS Hue
CMS Sat
Color Temp middle
Motion Enhancement 120 High
Active Contrast On
Gamma 0
Film Mode High
Dig Noise Reduction Auto
