I have been comparing the 40EH5000 and the 40EH5300 and my wife and I are leaning towards the 5000...picture dimming in the corners seems less, and after looking at the SmartTV features, we really don't see ourselves using them.
This thread is a great resource...I have a couple small questions:
1) I really see us using the USB media playback a lot. However, the picture settings seem limited to just choosing a mode (dynamic, movie, etc). As a test, I set the backlight to 0 on HDMI1. This setting did not carry over to the USB "input". So, basically, if I calibrate HDMI1, there's no way for me to do an equivalent calibration on the USB input?
2) Based on the recommendations in this thread, I set P Size to "Screen Fit". I then used the arrow buttons to move the image around on the screen, getting it perfectly centered on all sides (I'm using a DVR that outputs 1080i). However, I turn the TV off and then turn it back on, and the screen is back to it's original position, about 4 pixels too low. UGH. If I have to correct the screen position every time I turn the TV on, that's REALLY bad. Any advice?
