Hello guys, new to the post but not new to the site..
So, after looking around for quite awhile between Vizio 60 and Samsung UN60EH6000, well, I went with the Samsung. Got it from Amazon for $1098. Finally got it yesterday. Pretty stoked about it.
Messed with the calibration for awhile and I think I've got it close to how I'd want it but definitely will calibrate it further when I get the WOW BD.
So, mine is the HS01 version. The picture looks great. Love it.. Got couple of questions though...
1) I have ATT Uverse. Didnt opt for the HD channels when I had my Panny LIFI. Now, I'm getting cropped picture connected with HDMI directly to the ATT box. Both 16:9 & Screen Fit gives me cropped top and sides black bars... arrghh.. I'm resorting to Wide Fit but I'm losing the edges of the picture.. eg: I can't even see the channel line-up menu entirely... This sucks. Can this problem be solved if I get HD channels/signals? If it is, I'll call ATT and get the HD package.
2) I just bought the Yamaha V373 as well to replace my old Yamaha receiver. Also got a Panny bluray player. So, my question is, as far as connections, am I correct if I say all I have to do is connect both the blu-ray and ATT Uverse box to the Yamaha with HDMI and also TV to Yamaha through HDMI as well? That's it? Do I need optical cable? I have Paradigm speakers that I'll connect directly to the Yamaha.
3) Lastly, why can't I get Close Caps with any TV channels? When I pressed the CC button on the remote, it says, "Not Available".... Now, if I change my source from HDMI to TV, I'll get CC. What can I do to get CC with HDMI?
Any help will be greatly appreciated, especially with the black bars on top and sides... really hard to watch anything. Thanks guys!!
p/s: the Yamaha and Bluray player is not here yet. Should be here next week.
