OK, glad it's not just me then. I'm glad you also brought up the audio quality or lack of, as I also found that to be the case when going thru the USB port.
Can you guys elaborate on how you connected your media player to the GT50 and the type used? In other words, I have a win 7, 64bit OS on my laptop with all my media on it, what's the best way to connect it to this TV, to get the best video and audio? My current laptop does not have an HDMI out, just PC monitor port (so no audio out, unless I go thru the 3.5mm audio out jack), or should I look into a different type of a media player or a PC which has an HDMI out to get the best of it? I have a Tablet with an HDMI out, would that be a better choice to use?
Right now I have my Bluray and Cable/Sat signals going into my AVR, then using an ARC out to go to the TV, from the TV I also have an Optical out to the AVR.
