Back of TV. There is a sticker that says the build month and year.
Please do not buy Monster cables. They are total rip off and a half. Return and buy online at sites like
You are going to need to upgrade your DirecTV receiver to an HD model. You will need to subscribe to their HD package. You may have to upgrade your dish also.
First of all thanks.
I can't tell you the date, because its already hangin on the wall and i can't reach back to see it.
Second you right about the monster cables. Can i still return them if i don't have the boxes ? but i do have the receipt
As for upgrading for DIRECT TV HD receiver than i understand, but in the meantime.. how can i see what my TV is capable off
I'm thinking of buying a OPPO OPDV971H but the thing is BEST BUY doesnt have it so i can't just go and pick one up..
I would like to get one from best buy because i have a gift card for $250 which i can use.. Unless they have some other playes that you guys would recommend for me. I am thinking of the OPPO DVD player, because i read couple of threads and many people mentioned using this particular TV with that DVD player.. So i got a little excited and thinking of getting that one.. Unless BEST BUY carries something better for about the same price or maybe even $250? if its really better
Please let me know
2nd thing is this for the meantime i want to see what my TV is capable off with my current DVD player .. its a Panasonic DVD/VCR i paid not more than $50 for it.. iam using monster cables to connect to it..
but now my question is how would i set my DVD player's settings to send the best picture to the TV.. here are my settings for my DVD player please let me know what i should change to get that quality iam looking for from a DVD player.
here they are:
_Main Menu_ my current settings are in BOLD
Still Mode: Auto
, Field, Frame
TV Mode: 4:3 Pan and Scan
, 4:3 Letterbox, 16:9
LPCM (DVD) : Off
Dolby Digital: Bitstream
What should i have these set on? and if you can explain why i would really appreciate it. so later on i won't ask why and what..
I'm a newbie at this but I'm willing to learn so please bare with me.
Thank you very much everyone.
