There is an option to use an external source. IIRC, it's not under the audio menu, but the Setup menu.
I watch a lot of sports, Formula 1, etc, and have not noticed any motion blur or ghosting.
I like it with my Sony BluRay player, though there is some edge bleed noticeable in dark scenes with the lights turned down in the room. It isn't a deal-breaker for me.
I think it looks great off-axis viewing. I read a review somewhere that said it was bad off-axis, but my wife and I can't find fault with it.
The cheesy remote is crappy, but we mostly only use it to switch inputs.
Overall, a steal for the $699 I paid for it last summer. I saw it last week at Fry's for $599!
I am having a slight flickering problem on the AVS709 disc. I just got the Panasonic DMP-BDT-500 Blu-Ray player, and its settings are stock (contrast, chroma process, sharpness, all that).
Choose "Misc. patterns" then choose "Resolution". Two of the screens there are giving me problems. The "single black pixels" and the "vertical resolution - 1 pixel" cause flickering. Also, sometimes it looks like someone is playing the start of a 16mm film during the flickering, where someone wrote with a marker on the beginning of the film. Fleeting artifacts that remind me of someone's handwriting, but they are not.
This happens at both 60Hz (clear frame = off) and 120 Hz (clear frame = ON).
I have the "Tartan" 24 AWG HDMI cable from Blue Jeans cable, I wiggled it a bit, it did not cause or stop the flickering.
Does anyone know the name of this problem or the cause? Is this in the TV or the player? I don't think this will affect actual movies/TV, but I would like to understand what this is.
Do you have any ideas? Thanks in advance for your input.
Edit: Sorry, but I just read the answer to my question in an above post. I should have read the thread more carefully. Thanks.
The TV's "preference" mode is where your settings will be saved ("movie mode", etc. are manufacturer presets). Adjust to your personal taste with the lighting conditions you expect to have when viewing.
I just bought the Toshiba L5200u 46 inch because my Samsung LN46c630 exploded after a little over two years. I called Samsung and they said call for service - no help at all. Do a Google search on Samsung problems and you will see.
Toshiba 50L5200U arrived yesterday. I setup the TV per Digital Trends settings. The 1st thing I notice is on any black background there is this octagon line of lights coming through. The only way to get rid of it is to turn the "Backlight" at or near zero. Is this normal? Did I miss a setting?
I think that CNET's settings (in dim lighting) is the best for that backlight problem. However, now I'm wondering how to get rid of the excess GREEN TINT in the shadows ect.
From CNET review of Toshiba 50L5200U
Failure - if the backlight/brilliance is increased to the high side, the display flickers and goes blank a few minutes after turning it on.
Dealer's service department diagnosed problem as a failed panel that houses the LEDs at a cost of $1,900.
Luckily the credit card I used to purchase this TV covered the replacement cost (up to the amount of the purchase price). The credit card doubled the Toshiba 1 year warranty period to 2 years.
