So I finally started enjoying the 500m yesterday after break in and even without D Nice's settings, it looks amazing to me. Better than my Sharp Aquos I'd say.
Anyhow, I tried checking the hours to verify how many hours the TV logged during break in, but I couldn't get it to work.
I was directly connected from my laptop (Windows Vista) to the 500m via a crossover cable. I turned IP Control to on in the setup menu for the 500M. Then I opened an IE browser and typed in the IP address listed on the set, but I got nothing. I also tried the "url" posted by someone else that incorporates the IP to check the hours, EZ Hours, but I still got nothing. The page just times out.
Am I doing something wrong here? I've never done anything like this before so I'm just going for it based on what I've read here.
FWIW, the indicator lights did light up on the laptop port and the 500m port once the cable was connected.
