3. Remembers the wrong favorite channels. I set 2.1, 5.2, and 7.1 as my favorite channels. Exit menu, come back, and my favorites are set to 13, 17, and 20.
Picture is decent, but some HD channels definitely looked better on my 32inch 720p Westinghouse (particularly 1080i channels).
Can someone share any calibration for this TV? Thanks!
Sounds like you are using the included tuner, and not the cable/sat box etc. Calibration is in the eye of the beholder. I plan to do mine tomorrow using my THX disc and glasses.
For now make sure idea is off and 6500k color is chosen. Also best viewed using HDMI connection, or are you using OTA Antenna?
Make sure you understand the nuances of using the sub-channel key on Olevia's remote. (I also have the 542i which I have had for over a year now, exact same remote.)
This TV is best viewed at least 6' away at a 47" screen size. Anything closer and yes you will notice. Try sitting further away. Hopefully you are not in a small room. :-)
1080i Channels look great on my HDMI FIOS TV Box, so do the DVD's on my Progressive player also HDMI.
I can't hook up the PS3, since I bought that for a xmas present, but so far so good.
The 247TFHD is shorter than my 542i, about 35" but 2.5" wider. (5" more diagonally.) Speakers are much smaller than 542i.
Looks great on HDMI through my FIOS TV Box.
xbox looks ok. (PS3 won't be hooked up till xmas, so can't comment on 1080p) 1080i and 720p look great. TV is best viewed at least 6' away.
Speakers were ok, before I blocked them, as I use my HTIB for sound.
Not a single dead pixel, was boxed very well. I have to calibrate it a bit and reprogram my Logitech 890, so that is tomorrow's work in the morning.
Great price. Can't find much better for $1099 on a 47" 1080p LCD TV.
I am also in California, (so is Olevia) so I am not as concerned about warranty work, although I have had no problems with my 42" which I have had for OVER year now.
The included CD Rom has a PDF users manual, which details connections pretty well. (although mine went extremely quick...
Hook it on up. Mine looks great. (My 3rd HD Tv now)
Moved 247TFHD to Family Room
Moved Olevia 542i Upstairs to Bedroom
Moved Sanyo 37" HD 1080i tv from bedroom to Home Office. (Take that kids)
And if I can't watch what I want to watch now, I am really in trouble...
BTW - FIOS is coming Saturday to give me my 3rd HD Box. They wanted to come today, but I had not picked it up when I called. They gave me 2 hour window for Saturday. Rehooked up both other HD Boxes, 3rd on is for my Sanyo in my Home Office.
