Lol Apparently looking good has nothing to do with playing well.

Things should be looking up for the play on the field. There is nothing to say about the uniforms. wink.gif

For the past few months I've been watching Netflix on other devices, but decided to give it a go again on my VT50. I hadn't had issues in the past, but now get a message that the app can't connect to the Netflix service. I've read a number of posts that lead me to believe this is at least a known problem, and is similar to one that has been experienced with the Panasonic BDT220 Blu-ray player (which I also have, but don't have this issue).

To troubleshoot, so far I've:

1. Confirmed the network setup is correct, and that everything else on the TV can access the LAN & WAN successfully; I've also reserved an IP address for the VT50.

2. Confirmed the Netflix app on three other devices, which are on the same LAN, can connect to the service without issue.

3. Deactivated the Netflix app on the VT50 numerous times using the Up, Up, Down, Down, etc. sequence.

4. Factory reset the VT50.

So far nothing has worked to fix this problem; I get the message that the app can't connect to the service almost immediately after starting it up, so haven't even been able to try and re-register the VT50 with Netflix. The error message I see when I go to the deactivation screen is: "NBP / 1 / Unable to connect to functioning local backend /".

Has anyone had this issue and fixed it? Any other recommendations or guidance would be great.

Thanks!

Chad did a great job on mine too, but I think my 3D is a little dark. Maybe we can fix that when he comes out for a 20,000 mile check up smile.gif

Im not sure how he did yours, you could check the CC files he leaves and see what settings they were. When I did 3D myself on a coupld, I was around 5-7 fl's, he got 9.3fl on mine. Thats high panel brightness and contrast 100. She is glowing when you take the glasses off, but looks plenty bright to me when they are.

Same for me: Panel Brightness = High; Contrast = 100

Watching Ray Donovan on Showtime right now, wife has pretty much all the blinds open. Swapped over to "Day" mode and man I like it. Just a nice bit of ooomph to overcome the light in the room, and the image still looks very accurate.

His gamma choice defintely helps get some of the low level detail back, which is crushed in Night mode (he has 10% gamma around 2.10)

So I turn my 8 month old 60vt50 off for a few minutes. Then I turn it back on and NO PICTURE!!! But there is sound. SO I wait a minute just in case it is slow displaying the picture. I turn off and turn on 4 or 5 times. Finally it works. One key suggestion that it was not merely slow to show the picture is the SMART VIERA logo did not show up either. And that is usually prompt as hell in displaying brightly.
I haven't had that problem again the rest of the day.

I use an HDMI connection from COMCAST cable box. Never had a situation where you can only get sound but no picture from this TV before.

Not likely to be the cable company as your Smart Viera logo didn't show up.

If it does it again, you might want to disconnect the power cord for a minute and then plug it back in. See if that somehow resets the power up sequence.

Did you have any storms lately?
