First off ,thank you Chicolom for all your time and knowledge , you are indispencable here dude i i appreciate all your doing for us here. I had a un55eh6001 delivered yesterday, fri. the 21st and it was bad right out of the box, red line vertically down the right side . The geek squad installer said he has seen numerous bad 6001's.He said mine was a returned BF special and not a brand new unopened and he showde me how he knew this one had previously been installed before, meaning, BB = Liars,, Needless to say i took it back to BB, read the riot act to the manager and and got the only thing they had compareable and that was a 55eh6000 FXZA, version TH02 i looked at the label on the box to see the version as now i was wise to whats going on thanks to this thread and i now have a TH02 version. Is the TH02 a Samsung S-PVA panel and a better tv. BB said it was 999.00 but gave it to me for 799.00 since they screwed me the first time. Kind of glad it happened cause i knew nothing of the roulette panel lottery that has been defined here. The geek squad will be here tomm morning to set this one up and calibrate it. I have direct tv with HD and wifi on my bell south dsl ,and bought a blu-ray with wifi to make this tv a smart tv, if i understood the guy at BB correctly. Do i need any special hdmi cables such as a high speed ethernet type or will the direct tv supplied hdmi cable suffice. The geek squad installer said the direct tv hdmi's i have are junk ,is this true ? Plus he said my surge protector is no good, and its a pretty good one i thought ,said i needed a special 75- 100 dollar one with special features for these tv's . I'm not sure if he's telling the truth. Thanks again and i will post the results of the install tomm and let you all know what the verdict is.
