Hey guys it seems like the Pandora app is a little buggy. After a few minutes of playback the music stutters (it kind of seems like it rewind itself a few miliseconds) and continues until I switch the song. It does this consistently with every track.

The Netflix app and youtube app work great. I'm hardwired in via Cat5e.

Anybody else experience this?

I will be honest, for the 5" gain and the loss of PQ you will see from going from plasma to LED you will not be happy overall.

Now get the 80" and every time you think about this issue you can say, man this is big, I love this TV I made the right choice, 5" gain will NOT do it !! Buy the 80" or do not buy at all is my advise....

LOL.

To be honest, as I sit watching 300 Rise of an Empire in a pitch black room last night on blu-ray, the need of the Sharp comes into question.

Newbie Questions for 60 TQ

Purchased the 60TQ and using johnfull's "User" settings which I do like. However, I have a few questions and apologize in advance if it has been answered or if this is not the appropriate thread...Here goes:

1. Does it matter which HDMI input I'm using? I have been using HDMI 1 for my Directv genie. Does it matter?

2. I use my PS3 (HDMI 2) for watching blu rays, however, when I utilize my receiver for audio (via digital optical), I notice terrible audio sync issues, making it unwatchable. My audio receiver is an old Sony model that does not have an HDMI set up. I am coming from a 50" Panny plasma and had no audio sync issues from my receiver. I did not touch any settings on my receiver when I hooked up the 60TQ so not sure why I'm experiencing the sync issues. There must be a setting I'm missing on the TV.

Appreciate your help.

Someone told me to use HDMI 3 for any problems with audio synch. It's the one with ARC.
I use an old Yamaha that gets the DTS signal from the BluRay player directly through a
coax connection (optical works, too) and the TV gets the video signal over HDMI.
I never had a problem with synch with that setup, but my Satellite box was always losing
it when it got a glitch from weather, etc. Using the #3 HDMI for that fixed the issue for good.
I suppose it says in the manual somewhere that #3 is the Audio Return Channel (ARC), but
I would never have suspected without being told. Good luck and keep us posted!

HDMI 2 is designated for a computer, that I know from reading the manual. I use 1 for Dish TV and 3 for BR.

Best of luck

So I moved the PS3 under HDMI 3...used to be under HDMI 2 and no change in audio sync issues using stereo receiver. My next thing is to move the directv receiver to HDMI 3 and see if that changes anything. Everything is hooked up as it was with my plasma...optical cable from stereo receiver to TV and PS3 (via HDMI) to TV as well.

Will any audio settings on the TV do anything to help? There is bitstream and pcm and I beleive pcm is default.

Appreciate everyone's help.

Try a coaxial cable instead of optical?
Try using DTS instead of Dolby?
Does the receiver have DTS?
Maybe run audio from the TV output to the amplifier?

3D Glasses Not Pairing Cont'd

Sharp support wanted to send me a new set of 3D glasses. Instead of waiting I told them I would go to Best Buy and try another pair. I did this and still no pairing...

So it looks like the Bluetooth just totally went out for no reason. Called Sharp back and now they are sending a tech out this Thursday to look at my set that isn't even two months old...
Sharp sent out some local techs to replace the sensor in front (right by the power light). That didn't work so it's either the main board and/or the wifi/bluetooth board they said. I'm in luck though as both these are not available so they are issuing me a return authorization for the set. Back it goes.

Got a Sony XBR65X900a. Unreal how good the set looks. But, my trend of defective TVs continues as it has light leaking through the bottom left speaker... so I have to swap this one out. Going to go for another x900a.

Next to getting a display truly calibrated, using/buying the Darblet is in my opinion the best thing a user can easily do to improve their picture quality at an affordable price.

Want more image pop? Use the Darblet instead of using jacked up colour temperature and colour settings. The Darblet gives off a perceived increase in ansi/intra-scene contrast while messing with those other settings does not.

Want a sharper image? Use a Darblet instead of bumping up the sharpness control of the TV/display which just adds ringing and artifacts.

I really can't stress how great the little thing is and how much it adds to the image. I have had mine since it first came out and if it broke tomorrow I'd be ordering a replacement right away. Hell, I need to order another one so I don't have to keep moving it from my home theater room projector setup to my bedroom LCD.

The best thing too is that it gives the user the control on how much the effect is used with the 3 different styles and then the percentage of effect to use. That there are some people who don't like it or think it adds very little to the image blows my mind and I think those people are crazy.

If you aren't tight on cash and enjoy your set and would like to take it to a bit of a next level then go order one of these little beauties. It may sound like I am some paid Darblet pitchman but I am not. I just really really like the device (I am passionate when it comes to things I like and endorse. You should see me talk about electronic bidet seats! Pretty much the best invention in human history) and want more people to use it and have a better image and I know based on experience it easily enhances the image these Sharp sets produce.

Cleveland Plasma had them for $250 as at Monday yet it seems the price has gone back up to 295-300. If they get them back to 250 then really, it is IMO a no-brainer to order one from them or if you find another place that has it for that same low price. Even at 300 it is a steal since it adds more than $300 worth of improvement (when say comparing a TV to one that is $300 more) to a display.

What are your settings on the DARBEE? Mine will be here tomorrow and would like to establish someone else's setting as a baseline. Thanks!

What is Darbee Visual Presence? In a nutshell, it's a form of video processing that improves the sense of depth and clarity in the image by adjusting luminance values, using light and shadow in much the same way an artist does to create a sense of depth and detail in a painting. Unlike sharpness controls and other edge-enhancement technologies that add unwanted information to make the picture seem more detailed, or the contrast/black enhancement tools that just play with overall white and black levels (usually crushing white/black detail in the process), Darbee Visual Presence works at the pixel level, changing luminance values and adding 3D visual cues by creating left and right frames within a 2D space to enhance the sense of depth, dimensionality and, consequently, detail. The technology may be difficult to explain, but the effect is actually quite easy to see. You can learn more about Darbee Visual Presence through the company's website.

I wonder if it would work as well with the UQ17U since it has an advanced 'Contrast Engine"

http://tvevaluate.com/sharp-uq17u-vs...vs-lc-60sq15u/

The UQ17U utilizes the Super bright technology, which is omitted from the SQ15U. The aforementioned technology is a combination of a high brightness panel and a contrast engine that enhances the brightness without degrading the black levels, thus the picture on the UQ17U is more contrasted. The extra brightness can also improve the 3D images in case of the UQ range, since the active shutter 3D glasses can sometimes block too much light, making the image appear darker.

I was in the market for a Samsung and on my lunch break I took a trip to Sears. While there, I drooled over the Sammy but also saw a 70SQ15U and loved the picture on it. I searched everywhere online and todays going rate is $2,499. I wound up clicking on MicroCenters ad and they had it for $1,499 I just couldn't believe it. I reserved it and picked it up 2 days later.

I'm new to all this and have the WOW disc on it's way. I was reading through this thread but so far only made it to page 23. Has anyone posted optimals settings for the SQ yet?

I CANNOT believe I got this tv for $1,499, lol.

Congrats! These have proven satisfactory for several SQ owners:

There are also some machine-gauged calibrations for Movie setting only elsewhere in this thread.

Wow that's a great deal! I was shocked when I got mine price matched at Best Buy from Amazon at $2,199 two months ago AND they took 10% off with a new movers coupon. Ended up around $1,800,.

But why not try for the UQ17U for the same price? Am I missing something here?
