Hi - first off, we are LOVING this TV picture-wise! Made the jump from an old 40'' Samsung LCD to this beautiful 50'' GT50. Had it wall-mounted two days ago and have tweaked picture settings to a level we're happy with. That said, I'm really frustrated about the fact that our wifi speed on the TV itself seems to be...bad. Here's our home network setup:
Cable modem: Comcast
Router: Cisco Linksys E1500
I also have a PS3 hooked up next to the TV. The PS3 streams Netflix and YouTube flawlessly (including HQ vids on YouTube in HD). However, the GT50's YouTube app won't let me watch a video for more than 10 seconds before it starts to stutter and lag. The video eventually becomes out of sync with the audio too. It's awful.
Do I have a defective model? It just doesn't make sense. We get about 21 Mbps download speeds on our network, and my wife's and my laptop (and the PS3) don't lag whatsover when streaming video. So it's definitely not a speed issue. We aren't downloading anything on the network when attempting to stream through the GT50, either.
Any help from you great folks would be much appreciated...otherwise the Geek Squad may have to come replace our set with a working one. Thanks in advance.
