I have to chime in on something.
This notion of the filter blocking light seems ridiculous to me. I mean, my s64 is really bright! If light IS being blocked, it has to be a very VERY minor amount! I'm not saying it isn't possible, but how bright do you want a TV to be? Are you looking to tan while watching TV?! Ha. Just saying ...
Another note: I have uVerse for TV service. I am unable to use the "surround sound" mode on the DVR as an audio output option because sound does not play through the TV speakers. After AT&T coming out multiple times and many hours researching, it appears this is the fault of the TV. The S64 is not able to process that signal. So, I have to switch to that mode only when I use my AV receiver. This is a minor inconvenience, but it is an issue. I'm not sure why ALL TV's would not process this signal out-of-the-box in 2013?
Otherwise, the TV is awesome!
