TiVO Premiere connected to Marantz AVR, via HDMI.
VT60 VieraLink set to Home Theater in Apps, VieraLink.

All equipment gets turned off after use. When turned back on, TV Speakers is selected and when I change back to Home Theater, TV Input has changed to wrong HDMI port.

I'm thinking of just leaving TiVO on.

Thoughts?

Scott

Ok, for anyone following this post, the resolution seems to be to set everything on the Panasonic correctly (Home, Apps, VieraLink, Home Theater Speakers) and then simply leave power ON to the TiVO.

Like a good neighbor. They owe to replace with like, kind and quality. But if none are available then something comparable.

It's possible that a ribbon cable connector simply needs to be re-seated so i'd try that first. This has worked for various people here over years who had a top-to-bottom anomaly like that.

It's also possible that a board has gone bad.

Thanks - once I get it off the wall I'll try that. Hope that's it as it seems boards are hard to come by

Does anyone else have their panel up to about 6,000 hrs? Mine is at just over 5,600 and I'm wondering if at any point I need to have it re-calibrated? It was probably calibrated around 3000 hrs but I'm not totally sure.

I have a 65VT60 that has 9500 hours. I have Chad B out once a year (3000 hours normally). After he does his magic I can clearly see a better clearer more natural picture. This last time he said it didn't drift much but it was noticeable to me. The things I told him about PQ he says most people can't even see that. Ha

6778 hrs. Ran Sound and Vision settings for the first 6500. Sure glad I learned how to calibrate myself.

I prefer my SP-A800B projector over my VT60 despite the loss of black levels. It just feels so right whatever I through at it, I could never achieve that level with my VT.
Still a wonderful TV though.

On Directv, Blurays, Regular HD stuff the OLED is better by not that much better where you say this is so incredible over the VT60. Where the LG OLED really shines is the 4k HDR stuff. That's when I say this is incredibly over the VT60.
Own a 65VT60 and an LG OLED B6P.

I'm waiting on the QLEDs to come out, should be 2019 or later, wait and see. I'm talking about the self emissive qleds which don't exist yet, not the ones used in backlight. That day LG might have a serious competitor.

No guarantee 2019 is the year. Still need a prototype in anything close to resembling a home theater TV size and with a blue lifetime of well over 10k hours.
