Long time lurker, (almost) first time poster here... I have a few questions regarding the p50st50b...
Can this TV (and newer HDTV's in general) auto-regulate the sound output? That is, can you modify a setting on the TV to make it automatically increase the volume on a movie when actors whisper, and automatically lower the volume during explosions, and other excessively loud scenes? I'm not sure what this feature is called. Also, would this TV be capable of Picture-In-Picture (PIP)? I've read newer TV's cannot do this since the all digital broadcast changes in 2009, is that the case? I realize with the advent of DVRs and streaming, this isn't has much of an issue as it was in years prior, but I'm still curious if this can be done.
Finally, it seems difficult to get a consistent opinion on the 3D capabilities of the p50st50b. I've read several, widely opposing opinions on crosstalk. CNET says its pretty noticeable, and xCREEP1NGDEATHx points out its really bad in his experience... yet, I've read several reviews which say the 3D is excellent and virtually no cross-talk exists. See this review for example... [Edit]Forums won't let me post a link due to 1st time posting/spammers, you can Google, "TX-P50ST50B avform review" and it should be the first result. There are other reviews which come to the same conclusion. [/EDIT]
Anyone else starting to come to the conclusion it may be an quality control issue, affecting some (but not all) p50st50b's?
