I found my first major gripe with the TV.
It doesn't seem to accept RGB 4:4:4 or YCbCr 4:4:4 over HDMI. At least, it didn't from my Mac Mini (2011 model with Radeon 6630M).
I forced the pixel format in Windows via Catalyst Control center, but it didn't look good. Red Text on Black, especially bad. Setting to YCbCr 4:2:0 was the best looking over HDMI, but still not 4:4:4.
I found a workaround, though, since I need HDMI audio through my receiver (yes, I tried the HDMI test w/o the receiver). I just hooked up the video using VGA and the audio using HDMI (to the receiver), and set ATI to duplicate the displays and used the "PC IN" on the SHARP.
I'm happy now. Got my surround audio in games, movies, etc. plus 4:4:4
Have two cables from the Mac Mini, but what else can I do, really? :-)
