i had to get a 7'6" shark through the door to hang on the wall - a 61" tv shouldn't be THAT bad! lol

A 7'6" shark and a dog with a giant tool...that's a strange apartment!

I think you'll be fine even if you have to tip the box for just a moment. Some folks here have transported the TV on its side in the back of a vehicle for the entire trip home without any problems.

With all of Lee's recommendations minus the DB - settings, and with Dynamic contrast low for an extra punch throughout most of the movie thinking that without it the PQ was a bit dull and this was fun for awhile.

But then decided to switch DC off toward the last few scenes..and wow...I felt that I was actually in Italy looking at those scenes through my own naked eyes.

It was like comparing the same professionally shot photo displayed on a good plasma against a National Geographic post processed print. The print will look dull by comparison but far more realistic.

those pictures are with all of Lees settings and user menu settings except the DB aperature, I did that part after the picture was taken. I have since closed the DB Aperature and I think theres improvement. The pictures really don't do fine detail justice, but shows great differences from one to the other.

I brifely watched some of TDK with Dynamic Contrast on Low, and thought it looked better for some scenes, next chance I'll get I'll switch it to OFF and reevaluate my experience!

Its not a replacement for a homeowner's policy. That being said, I haven't filed a claim yet under my Mack warranty so I don't know how they are to deal with.

They changed that 30 day policy. Do a forum search on "texas tapeworks" for the details.

You'll notice that censored your picture a bit. Haha...

If you have enough clearance, you may want to lift it up all the way to clear the horizontal part of the rails on the right of the picture. You might also need couple of friends to help you lift it that high.

IIRC, the deadline is 2/28 (Saturday), but that is the deadline for them to receive it, not a postmark date. And who knows if they really will be working to receive mail on Saturday.

My cable provider is Netflix

As others have said, it is no longer 30 days. Can't remember but you can buy up to either 1 or 3 months before your OEM warranty runs out.

And good luck finding ANY TV warranty that will cover power surges. They won't. That is what the equipment replacement warranty coverage from a surge protector company is for. My APC surge protector covers some ridiculous dollar value amount of equipment when the equipment is connected to the protector. I actually filed a claim for a stereo years ago. The surge protector was toast. I got a new surge protector and about $500 for my OLD stereo.

I have NO idea how good Mack warranties are because this will be my first. I will say that I emailed Brian Poole (sp?) a small list of questions and his answers were prompt and perfect. He will get my money for a 5yr extended warranty. By the way, that extention will start after my 15 month Samsung warranty expires (3 extra months on the OEM warranty by registering the TV online).

And for the person asking about Best Buy warranties a couple pages back...AVOID them like the plague! Speaking from personal experience. I haven't bought anything more than an occasional DVD from them in over 5 years. The day that Circuit City announced their demise was a sad day for local B&M purchases.

What do you recommend for my local channels? An outdoor/attic antenna, some thing to boost the signal, or a different indoor antenna?


I'd recommend what I did on my Dish setup. I bought the largest outdoor antenna I could from RS (Model VU-190 XR, it's 160inches long, and has 57 elements, and they carry them in the store). With the mounting hardware, pole and antenna, it was under $160.00.

Go to Antenna.org (there are other sites like it out there too), put in your address information, and it should show you wait the relative signal strength will be for your location, per TV station. This can help you with antenna size selection, if you don't want a beast like mine.

I then used antenna.org to show me where to aim it, and all my locals were in the mid-90's to 100 on the dish indicator. Unfortunately for you, if you don't subscribe to local channels, you cannot get the program guides to show up. But, that's what the TV guide mag is for.

I personally don't buy the BS about getting a so-called HDTV Antenna, the frequencies are the same ones used by broadcasters for years, the signal just happens to be digital. A good UHF/VHF combo antenna works just fine, for a lot less money.

So the same changes to the primary/secondary colors and grey scale will be similar across the board.

The only real differences are the environments people have their TVs in, causing variances in user satisfaction.

So, now you're trying to keep me from getting my free TV?

You can tip it on it's side at least 45-degrees without issue. That's how the guy from HHGregg got it to my truck. It was tipped at least 45-degrees on the dolly.

Currently testing 3D with Sammy DLP, shutter glasses, and HTPC

Just for fun...

If you have a way to view high-res JPGs (e.g. PS3 via hdmi) on your XXa750 check out this one while adjusting your gamma (see: http://interfacelift.com/wallpaper_b...ladelphia.html). I d/led the 1920x1200 one and kept looking at all the shadows as I adjusted gamma (with all other settings as Lee posted). I ended up sticking with gamma "0", but got into a compulsive loop for a few minutes before I settled.

Per my local news broadcast, the people that had a circuit city warranty were ok, because it was a different company that the insurance was thru! They just have to contact that co now for service, I don't know if that means in home service or not though.

Thanks for the recommend. We dont have the surge protection coverage simply because any surge protector comes with equipment value protection, and I dont know anyone that buys a new tv and does get some sort of surge protector. Mack Camera is the only extended warranty provider that has an AVS Forum account and if you look at our reseller ratings people think we do a good job. That being said if anyone has any questions regarding our coverage feel free to post or PM.

Is there a setting I can adjust to get the MUTE icon to disappear from the screen when the TV audio is muted? I have a custom sequence programmed on my 880 to mute the TV and un-mute my AVR (nice for watching TV with good sound, then mute so you go back to TV sound for the commercials).

BTW- just got my 67" today. It is INCREDIBLE. So much better pic than my 61" Scenium CRT RPTV that it replaced...

Welcome. We'll try answer as many of your questions as we can.

First of all, this particular DLP is superior to any LCD and all but possibly the Pioneer Kuro and top tier Panasonic plasmas. They may fall just shy of those two plasmas in very, very minor ways...there are advantages however. No burn-in and no image retention and no motion blur.

You can acheive incredible black levels and very accurate colors with this DLP and the size is great!

The lighting in the stores is just horrible. Don't judge these displays based on those experiences.

BTW...your room layout would be perfect for either the 61" or 67" model.

This display also works wonderfully with the PS3. Many of us have one...including me.

If you purchase this display, we have suggested user settings and service menu settings to get your pictuer to near professional grade calibration levels.

As I said on ps3f, you should grab the DLP man. I think any flaw in the set is trumped by the size and price point. If I were you, I would get it from somewhere local like BB, and keep the set for the 30 days. If you're not happy with the way it looks, return it and get the LCD.

Ps3 games look amazing. BD look great. I'm totally happy with my DLP. My wife is also happy with it, which is saying something. I never even hear her complain about the money we spent. Now that's a good buy.
