You are onto something. Single HDMI to TV from receiver. Nothing going back out from the TV.

If I have the TV on and unplug single HDMI connection going to TV, the hum goes away.

We not crazy. I can hear them on low volume content...occasionally distracting, but I've learned to live with it.

You could try a Hum X.

No dice. Swapped cables and still humming. The only time it stops humming is if the HDMI cable from AVR to TV is disconnected. The ground switch on the back of the JL doesn't do anything in either position.

Yes. I plugged the HDMI cable into HDMI 2 on the TV. Hum went away but as soon as I switched TV over to HDMI 2, hum is back. LoL...this is getting comical.

Don't want to double post but this is my biggest concern? The 65 inchZT box is huge!

-I live in a condo on the 17th floor and the delivery guys will have to use the moving elevator to bring up my ZT. The 65 inch ZT box in inches is the following: 75.8 wide, 40.5 high, 14.1 depth. The moving elevator in inches is the following: 82 wide, 100 high, 52 depth and the door to get into the elevator is 42 wide and about 80 or so high. Does anyone here see any issues or problems with this large size box/carton safely getting into the elevator? Let me know since I'm trying to project how much time this will all take. Also the elevator will be taken out of normal service to accomodate my delivery. I'm just trying to estimate all of the things that could cause problems for me and trying to mitigate those possible problems.

Thanks

I cant imagine any problem with the elevator. What are you thinking might cause a problem?
denaliman's Avatar denaliman 09:47 PM 11-24-2013
corner to corner dimension inside elevator would be 97 inches. Given door dimension, by my calculation that would leave 88 inches from back corner of the elevator to edge of door opening diagonally. lots of room to squeeze box diagonally through elevator door opening

Will it fit? Is my biggest concern and if not they will have to take it out of the box which I'm worried about things going wrong.

Awesome, thanks for responding. This alleviates one of my biggest concerns. Thanks for helping with the math calculations.

According to your own dimensions it will easily fit.

It doesnt even have to be that hard. He quoted the dimensions in a confusing way. What it amounts to is the door is 42" wide and the box is 40.5" wide. If its on a dolly you can just push it right into the elevator.

Ya...42.5" if you flip it end to end. I don't think he wants them to flip the box on its end so the TV is on its side. The package says not to lay flat or end to end

It shouldnt be transported on its end. It wont hurt it one bit just to get it in and out of the elevator.

The delivery guys will only unbox and inspect for visible outer panel damage and then leave. I have a friend who will help me put panel on assembled stand but later in the day.

-and lastly any other feedback would be greatly appreciated?

Thanks guys

Stand takes about 5 min. to assemble. Manual is on Panasonic site if you want to read up on assembly prior to delivery. Congrats!

How much for delivery? Do they deliver province wide? I checked their site and could not find any delivery information or "Add to cart" button to buy online. I'm near the Ottawa area.

If I understand it correctly:

A. You even get the hum in the sub when the TV is on and the audio cable to sub is disconnected.

B. Removing the ground using the switch on back of sub makes no difference.

B. The hum is a rolling type that repeats every 20 seconds

C. You have a single HDMI cable from TV to receiver. With TV on and HDMI unplugged the hum goes away.

D. When you moved the HDMI cable to the HDMI2 input there was no him initially, but when you selected HDMI2 with receiver the hum came back.

Four questions:

1. You state that you get hum with audio cable to sub disconnected. You also state that it hums with the ground switch lifted on the back of sub. Did you try both at same time or just one at a time? If you did both together such that it hums with ground switch lifted and audio cable unplugged I am stumped and think you need to call in Ghostbusters.

2. Is there anything else connected to the receiver besides the speaker cables and the single HDMI input?

3. Is the receiver mounted in a metal rack panel or touching any other equipment (metal to metal)?

4. Is anything else connected to the TV besides the receiver?

You would have to call them directly but I don't think they deliver Province wide, only Greater Toronto area.

Any recommendations for a wall mount for a 65ZT60? Just need tilt, not size to side. Prices are all over the place, but I really don't need a $500 mount.


Any special considerations for the wall? This thing is HEAVY!

I recently mounted my old 50" Samsung plasma using a Cheetah Mounts from Amazon. It was my first mount job and wasn't a problem at all. Although I mounted a 50" Samsung it does explicitly state that it will work with 65" Panasonic plasmas. It's the #1 seller and highly rated. It tilts up to 15 degrees. At $25 the price is right and it comes with a nice looking HDMI cable and a handy level.
