Awesome to hear, thanks for the info Sir! Sure makes me feel better about mine then. It's good news because I didn't feel like getting rid of it, especially now that's it's almost broken in.

What I did was run slides a hour then watch some TV for a hour and repeated this for the first 3 days.

Now I just run slides randomly or after watching a movie.

I'm not getting my TV calibrated. I had a mits widescreen RPTV 65 " before my Mits 73" DLP and had it calibrated. It looked good , but it was too dark for my taste.

I don't like bright, but the calibration was too dark for me.
Yeah, I was going to let the WOW loop run, but a lot of it is letterboxed. I'll d/l some slides or a break-in loop.

Did you have a buzz, and did it diminish?
First day my buzz was very low and only heard if I was dead center and had to turn my head left or right.Turned up volume to 10 and I didn't hear it.

Now I don't hear any buzz..maybe it's my brain tuning it out or it's due to it being broken in. I can't answer that, but what I can say is I had others listen for it and nada. buzz.

I used all kind of slides and sweeps on youtube....take a look on youtube for them. There's all kinds of variations of them.

Wish you the best !
