For those who've been playing the waiting game for Monoprice to get the 8 Outlet Home Theatre Power Center in stock...they're in! I read about this device on this thread some time back and they were backordered when I went to their site to check them out. The ETA has been updated a couple of times and I confirmed I was on their contact list before the ETA was updated again. They said I would get an email once they were in stock. While I was doing my regular check on their web site today, it still indicated an ETA of 12/26...rechecking 20 minutes later they were in stock.

If you've been waiting for your notification, they're in stock (less one ;-)! I still haven't been notified, but got the order confirmation. Thought I would pass this info along in case you were wanting to condition your power in hopes of taming your buzz. I have no buzzes with my 64" but wanted the clean power.

I have my 8500 connected to a Panamax power center. That could be the reason for no buzz on mine.

I just set mine up and they were right on top when you open the box. I had three dead pixles that all came back on with a tap on the glass. Running slides now.

this might seem like a stupid question,

how do I click 'More' in the youtube app? witth the touch remote? I cannot figure it out for the life of me. Everytime I try to swipe to it jumps to the following video. I just want a way to click it so I can ensure I'm watching my videos at max quality 1080p. I tried going into the tools from the More button and nothing.

Help!

Also, bumping an unanswered question.

problems/observations

I am a noob so please bare with me!!!!

I have a couple of questions that I thought might be answered here. I have owned a 64F8500 since 1st of November and I have a couple of questions about it (love the TV BTW, most amazing thing ever). I have not had my TV calibrated and I took a month in a half to break it in (all 16:9 viewing, dumb down settings, etc...). I am now viewing most my content off a Oppo 103d and a PS3. So here are some of my questions.

I have a few red dot snow patterns in dark places like the black bars on 2.35 viewing. It is only noticeable when you get up close to the screen, a couple of inches. I have noticed that this is only occurring during bluray play back. It does not happen on the menu screen for my Oppo, the menu screen is completely black. My question is, is this normal. Does everyone experience this. It seems different then red dot snow that I have seen on plasmas when I Googled it.

Another observation is on black bars there is a line of light that is between the picture and the black bars. Is this normal as well. When I turn off the TV or switch to something else, like going back to the home screen on my PS3 I notice that the black bars are visible on black screens as well as this lighter strip of light. This strip is quite thin about a MM, but still noticeable. I don't really know if this makes much since.

I hope that someone could help me with these or have some insight.

PS both symptoms are slightly worse when viewing a 3D movie, especially with glasses off.

The red dithering in letterboxes is normal and is probably the right setting. But if it bothers you lower brightness by a tick or two until it goes away. Just be aware that you might lose some shadow detail in the process.


As far as the line goes vary your content more. I doubt it's permanent but I could see that happening if you ONLY watch letterbox.

Hey, thank you so much for the quick response. I am not to worried about the line but wanted to know if it was normal to have. I try to very my content (harder then I thought it was going to be as I only watch movies on the display), nothing seems to be burning as of know. It was a big difference compared to my last TV (LCD). Glad to know all these are pretty normal. YAY!!!
