Playing black knight rising and other blue ray with the same player on both and with the same settings the overall images' quality is better on the hx755... I also noticed that hx755 manege sd input better that the hx855....but those are my personal impressions so it could be different for other people

We should know something on the scaler that both have to make a more objective comparison.

P.s. in my test all filters are off

Well I think I finally found the answer to this one. The manual in the specifications section says you may hear a clicking noise during downloads.

No Sony dont make a remote that controls your sattellite dish. Try Harmony. Their remotes might be what your looking for.

I have Directv, and I noticed that my receiver has a light for 1080p; however I'm only able to use the 1080i. I went into settings and yes the option to handle 1080p is checked.

I moved it to 720p and the picture looks better than 1080i.

I have the 55' HX 750.

Odd, I always thought that 1080 trumps 720 any day.

Any thoughts?

I Think that HDTV broadcasts from your local TV station, cable, or satellite service are either 1080i (such as CBS, NBC, WB) or 720p (such as FOX, ABC, ESPN) but not 1080p.
So...720p is 1,280 pixels across a screen horizontally and 720 pixels down the screen vertically. This arrangement yields 720 horizontal lines or pixel rows that are sent to a TV or other display device progressively, or each line sent following another (that is where the "p" comes from). In other words, the entire image (720 lines or pixel rows) is sent every 60th of a second (or twice every 30th of a second).

1080i represents 1,920 pixels arranged horizontally and 1,080 pixels arranged vertically. This yields 1,080 horizontal lines (pixel rows), sent to a TV alternately (referred to as an interlaced signal). In other words, all the odd lines or pixel rows are sent to the TV, followed by all the even lines or pixel rows.

This means that 1080i, since it is interlaced, only sends 540 lines (or half the detail) every 60th of a second, with all the detail sent every 30th of a second. On the surface, 1080i produces more detail than 720p, but since the increased detail is only sent every 1/30th of a second, rather than 1/60 of a second, fast moving objects, will exhibit slight interlacing artifacts - which can appear to look like jagged edges or a very slight blurred effect.

We also have to consider that all lcd or plasma or dpl tvs can only display progressively scanned images, they cannot display a native 1080i signal. If a 1080i signal is detected the TV has to scale the 1080i image to either 720p (if it is a 720p TV) or 1080p (if it is a 1080p TV). As a result, the quality of the image you see on the screen depends on the how well the TV's video processor works - some TVs do better than others.

Mando,

The 1080p light on your Directv reciever is only for their movies on Demand which they claim are 1080p. Otherwise they broadcast only 1080i or 720p. It sucks I know but what can we do?

2d to 3D, as in Simulated 3D? Looks pretty cool for Hockey smile.gif and a couple movies I tried playing.

I don't have a game system hooked to mine.

So do you think that the HX750 PQ would be not as good if the Directv receiver was set to show 'Native" resolution?

On my PQ problem (from previous post)

" I have had the HX750 for a few months now as a bedroom TV for an hour or so of viewing at night mostly. I can not get good picture quality-tried factory settins, CNET's, Hometheater.com's and those in post 1109 that had the retail mode ( that was garrish!).
The set shows a a darkish, non-sharp (soap opera effect?) PQ with all CNET and Home theater settngs. Using lastest HDMI high speed cable witha Directv receiver Hr-20 and a Panasonic DMP-BD65 blu ray player. Blu ray is better but does not compare with my 2012 Sharp LC-60LE640U either from Directv or blu ray. Not even close. Have tried adjusting contrast, brightness and sharpness under those settings with no improvement.

Think I have a bad set or the settings wrong? Any help would be appreciated"

I am using CNET's-played aroung with settings and increased backlite to 6 where all suggestions were 0. Big improvement-anyone know why this would help? Watch in total dark most of time (MBR).

Non properly....as any other LCD tv it will yield the best pq at the native resolution of panel (1080p)..with interlaced input the pq is influenced by the goodness of internal scaler that have to scale the image to a supported resolution.

So keep the Directv setting on what? 1080P?

Do I reccomend the Sony HX750? Yes I do without question. For me my HX750 is the best tv I have yet to own and now that I have my Pioneer HTP-071 Home Theater Surround System hooked up to it its even better. The only complaint I have about my tv is its built in speakers, they aint the best. But hey name a HDTV out there that has great sounding built in speakers? None that I am aware of. But yes I highly reccomend it.

Is anyone using the base stand that came with the TV and find that your TV is tilted forward a bit? Not noticable from the front but noticable when looking directly from the side.

Yes, I noticed the tilt on my 55' too. I tried putting in a space filler, but eventually gave up and left it as-is. I read somewhere that the tilt is 6 degrees or something like that for optimal performance.

My 46" should be arriving tomorrow.

Hopefully i dont get any dead pixel or bad spotlighting.

I would hate to have to go to the store to exchange it.

Wish me luck!
