I don't have ARC on my AVR, so I'm already using the Optical cable. Unfortunately my AVR doesn't allow me to disable the TV/SAT input, I can delete it from my selections when flipping, but the TV still switches to it because of CEC.
I've thought about connecting my IPTV (Bell Fibe) to HDMI 1 and using the TV/SAT audio, but then I have to switch inputs on the TV when I want to watch something else, and switch the AVR so that's not a great solution either.
All of that said, I just quickly wanted to chime in on the set. My first Plasma, coming from a Toshiba Regza set from about 7 years back and I watched my first movie last night, Star Trek (the newer one).
I've read every post in all of the main threads, exhausting to say the least. I'm glad the focus here has been on the set and general feedback. I've had it for about 3 weeks and because of a very close working relationship with Samsung, didn't have any other sets in mind. The deal I got made it the only choice, so I am glad to see that it lived up to the hype and then some.
I'm not sure about ISF calibration yet, that will be something to think about in a few months, but so far so good.
