Hello Gents. I just got my FP (65") today from Best Buy. I was looking forward to being blown away by the 3D, but found myself sort of let down. I looked at the set on the floor while it sat waiting to be mounted. The 3D looked HORRIBLE....then I remembered that this is an LCD and the viewing angles are much more limited than my samsung plasma that I had gotten used to. So I sat on the floor and kept an open mind. While the image got better there was still ghosting/crosstalk. I could induce it and make it worse by simply moving my head.....After this I was let down. After the set was mounted on my stand the ghosting/crosstalk is minimized a great deal, but I still know it's there. I tried to adjust the angle and it improved a little, but it's still there. I guess I read into the hype machine too much and though it would be perfect. Should I be seeing ghosting on the TV? Simulated 3D was even worse....The 3D doesn't auto switch on and off either. I'm sort of disappointed with the 3D implementation and I thought that was going to be one of the main selling points of the TV.
Another issue I wanted to mention is that I have an Onkyo TX-NR709 connected via HDMI 1. When I tune to my HTPC I don't have a 4K resolution option, just 1080p. This receiver is supposed to pass 4K@30Hz via HDMI 1.4, but here I am stuck in 1080p. Any suggestions? I did find a work around. If I connect the PC directly to the TV via HDMI the TV apparently send my receiver audio via ARC, which I thought was pretty nice, but I hate having more than 1 HDMI cable connected to my display. Also HDMI-CEC doesn't work like it did on my Samsung. With the Samsung if I toggled the power on the set it would also toggle the power of my receiver, however with the Sony if I turn the TV off it turns the receiver off just fine....but when I turn the TV back on the receiver stays off. I know the function worked properly because it worked on my Samsung. Am I missing a menu setting? Does anyone have any recommended settings? I kept seeing references to using VE Shootout settings, but I never saw them. I'm going to go back to pouring over this thread...it's a tough task since I started at page 1 last night lol.
