Too bad its supposed ability to throw sound in all directions to make it seem like you have speakers everywhere doesn't work, although sometimes for the left and right sides it will sound like sound is way off in the distance rather than coming from the speakers.

I really don't see how the 105 could be worth the cost anyway though if all it does is improve sound it's sending out and then still you have to buy the audio equipment, so doesn't seem like it would be worth t.t

I have the Yamaha DSP-5100 and in order for the effect to work you need the right shape/size room. The room needs to be rectangular in shape. Large open concept rooms will not allow the sound bar to bounce the sound off the walls.

No not DI vinnie, an eBay seller/company specialising in refurb consoles. Six month warranty also pretty good.

I bought the Denon transport stupidly believing the magazine review that i read that SD was amazing. I didn't think so. Perhaps if it was going through some sort of other processing first but i used only HDMI into media box of 500A. But it was better than the low end Pioneer spinner (51fd) it replaced .Blu-ray should in theory all be the same but the Pio player was quite noisy in comparison with the same movie. Maybe the PSU in the Denon was much better or something

yeah you have a close to high end model, though. The high end ones are known for having that work much better than the one I have. I didn't want to go high end and just wanted a simple, good one, so got one of the Yamahas that sued to be around $600 and was on sale for around $300. rather than going all out, I mostly wanted to simply stop having to sue tv speakers. Works out great for this tv, too, because now I don't have to have the speakers on, making it a huge wide beast taking up too much room. If I end up with extra money at some point I may get a higher end one like yours though (if I still go the sound bar route).

btw, I sure notice the flicker on bright whites.... just because you don't see flicker, doesn't mean your brain doesn't know it's thee, but for bright whites I even see it.

I wish so bad I could get the blacks looking right because it's sooooo close to that type of picture which floors me and I know all that's missing is the darker blacks. Again, it COULD be due to eye issues, though, so who knows if it's working right or not. But either way, I hope I get to see the stock levels some day. It already looks 3D and great except it looks washed out on certain scenes, which I assume is the black level. Black level gives that nice rich, relaxing look.

It never ends. Now I find out ebay charged me DOUBLE the shipping cost it originally said because I double boxed it. I thought the dimension change wouldn't be enough to cost much more and it went from freakin $60 to $128. Pathetic. And I thought I already PAID shipping, so now I am out $128 more than I thought.

By the way, that was for my SOny I sold like a month ago. I still haven't sold one of these. I am still stumped as to what to do about my current ones, such as whether or not to mess with resetting before selling one.

One thing about it, though, is that it will just keep messing up over and over each time, I assume, so will never truly be fixed regardless.

I'm still really confused as to why my head has been doing better. Still not "normal", but much better than it had been. If my head would never be worse than this and I could fix the black levels and sell the other elite, I would finally be able to relax and be happy.

What the heck is your medical condition that a TV actually makes your head hurt? Have you had a diagnosis from a Doctor? Have you been to a Neurologist or an Ophthalmologist?

Medical mystery. wink.gif Though I wonder if he's seen specialists as well (may be impossibly unaffordable to do in the very near future).

It's actually a serious question. I can't remember ever seeing anyone's head hurting from watching a TV.

I've seen an ophthalmologist, but he hadn't heard of anything like that from any of my particular visual issues, but said anything was possible. I am thinking of seeing a neurologist to see, but just keep figuring nobody will know. I've pretty much always had a tendency to have some headaches from watching much tv or a computer screen for long, like most people, but the difference with this is it doesn't ever go away, even if I stop watching tv for a day or two and it's a weird feeling that may be in the muscle or nerves or something. It doesn't do like a normal headache usually. SO I hope I don't die and it have to be said that a kuro killed me.

You should see a neurologist; just to have some scans conducted, to make sure that the persistent head pain is not being caused by a tumor.

Or discussing it until death due us part like other subjects - the Elites, old/new Oppo blu-ray to name a few. Seriously though, how would you feel if the problem got worse and you went to a Neurologist in a year and he/she said if you had only come to see me sooner we could have treated your problem, but now its at a point that nothing can be done. I don't know any normal person who loves going to the doctor unless their doctor looks a lot better than mine does or they have a thing for a guy wearing a rubber glove and ky. We are all adults and know when something isn't right, I think its evident this is one of those times so be smart and make an appointment. Without a doubt you are not going to find someone on this forum who will be able to tell you how to fix this problem. I am not a physician, but between your posts and pm's you definitely have an issue that requires a skill set other than what an ophthalmologist brings to the table. That I do know something about since my first job out of grad school was running the second largest ophthalmic practice in the U.S. at that time.

The medical field sucks, for the most part, anyway. Most anything you have, all they can do, as far as medicine goes, is give you something that covers symptoms and fixes nothing and also gives you new side effects. Really the only thing the field is sueful in is certain surgeries and actual meds for bacterial infections.

I will disagree and as usual you have your own answer, similar to listening to all of us regarding your Elite(s) and now your switch to a 103D from Oppo 93. Good luck, but if I was in your shoes I would want to see what could be done. Assuming you have insurance at worse its a co-pay and maybe a day away from work. If you managed to find a solution the only bad thing would be you would have one less thing to complain about on AVS eek.gif

Wow, you couldn't be more wrong about that. I hear just the opposite from my wife when i ask her how her day went at work (35 years in the medical profession at Cedars Sinai and UCLA hospitals).

The biggest problem in the medical industry is the doctors' ego (which she goes up against every day in the name of patient recovery). Modern medicine is amazing when applied properly.

Somelogin how would you compare absolutely the 93 to the 103 (without Darbee enabled) ?

I don't have it until tomorrow and I already shipped out the 93 so I would just have to be guessing on memory. The main thing I cared about was that the 103s are supposed to be much faster and the 93 annoyed me like CRAZY with how sluggish a lot of thigns were on it. So hopefully at least that part satisfies me.

As for the other, well I don't want to go all off topic, but studies show that chemo and antidepressants, for example, both work about he same as a placebo. Also, I've had this going on for a couple years and it all started when I bought new tvs. So far anyone I talk to has never heard of this type thing and they probably even think I'm imagining that simply watching an lcd for a few minutes can sometimes FIX the head issue like magic.

Andddddddd again with the BS that I ignore advice. lol Face it, nobody's advice has worked, as I have tried every bit of it other than the reset and voltage changes. people kept going on and on about how I ignored their advice to get a technician out, for example, and sure enough I was right about that.

OT, but which studies are those out of curiosity? I have a parent who is bipolar (I may also be, though depression is much more likely at the present time), and I can indefatigably state that the medications (namely, lithium and Seroquel) have stabilized the mood swings.

To the contrary I think we are all concerned about the issues you are complaining about and that is why more than a few of us continue to respond and try our best to help. For every one placebo study you produce I will be able to find numerous studies regarding the effectiveness of medication. Numerous mental diseases are a result of chemical imbalances that can only be fixed by the appropriate chemicals, not a sugar pill. If you have ever spent time working in a Psych hospital or with patients suffering from mental illness you will see just how effective in some cases medications are, unfortunately they do have the side-effects but well worth it for those wanting to return to some normalcy.

Get it checked and I am sorry, but you do tend to ignore us. Given you keep sticking around, posting about these issues and sending PM's there must be a little love somewhere in Memphis for us AVSers smile.gif

Speaking of Memphis, you all need to tell D-nice to come calibrate tvs here. tongue.gif

bipolar is more of a tricky one, I think, as I remember reading that some meds which are given for clinical depression would be bad for people with bipolar. I had seen some news stories in recent years as far as antidepressants, though. I don't really trust much as far as meds of any type go because it's so foten shown later on that people had used meds with bad long term side effects which weren't known about at the time and it's really rare that meds truly cure anything.

No, definitely not a cure in my case above, most pharmaceuticals just treat the symptoms (with a cure, there's less money to be made wink.gif)

If you can get 5-6 others wanting a calibration in your area / greater surrounding area, D-Nice may do a tour there.

Others have grouped to get him to their area.
