Out of curiosity, how does the 73840 compare to the 73838 (last year's model) if you happened to have seen it?

I didn't receive the 73840 yet, but I would like to compare my Samsung with really good PQ with the Mitsubishi.

On my 82740, the flashing green light indicates that TV is powered off and the auto-on TV Timer is set.

Today's the first time I had played a 3D DVD movie at home. I had to duck because Gru's ship was going to "skewer" me as he stopped. The experience is better than I thought it would be. Yay

I am using 20Gb/sec HDMI Cable to the TV and a Digital Cable to the Pre/Pro

hey all I've had my 73740 for about 2 weeks now and I'm noticing some light bleeding in the upper right corner of my screen, I've had dlp's for 7 years and I've never seen this. Is there any way to fix it?

(update) problem seems to be going away, so maybe I just needed to break in the set more...

While at Paul's TV today, I again checked out the 73840 and the 82840. I can now see that the 73840 has a very good and bright image just like the 73838 did, but the 82840 with the Clear Contrast Screen is definitely brighter than last year's 82838. You do have to watch those reflections, though.

It's $200.00 more than what I paid on cyber Monday for my 82740.

I don't think so but that's only my opinion. I've only owned one Mits DLP Diamond series (73833) and it didn't prove worth it to me because I already have a great sound system and the people that did the calibration said they didn't even use the Perfect Color/Perfect Tint.

The 73 can be had for $1200. seems like a great deal.

Does anyone know if I hook my Directv up to my 82740 via the HDMI then go from the digital audio coax out on the 82740 to my receiver is it getting 5.1 audio or just 2.0? Of course the source is originally 5.1.
Also my assumption is the the 82740 does not have an ARC.

I debated going with the 73840... but for my setup it didn't make sense to pay extra for the speaker system when I wouldn't have used it, and the additional color adjustment features didn't seem to be worth enough for me to justify the price increase. I'm sure for other people it would be worth it though - all depends on if you would use the features or not.

If you check your DirecTV box and make sure it is set to send Dolby Digital on the HDMI, then the TV will pass that on to the AVR.

This ablity in TVs is somewhat new - about 2 or 3 years. HDMI cables can only carry one type of audio at a time and most TVs do not accept Dobly Digital over HDMI and since only one type of audio can be on a HDMI cable at any given time, then the alturnative is PCM stereo and that is what would be passed to the AVR.

The HDMI requires the TV to mark which HDMI jack is used for ARC and advertise that feature. Since Mitsubishi does neither you are correct it does not support that feature.

The Tiger Direct pricing on the 92" is probably going to get me off the fence. Fry's would have to match it. I am still nervous about the reflections. Sad you have to buy one to measure it. Surprised I got the wife's buy in.

I will move quickly and see if BB will match it. That would be my preferred vendor all things being equal.

Just another blank signature.

Ironic you put it quite that way. I am hoping to not watch those reflections. This could happen as early as tomorrow if I end up buying from Fry's.

I got the 82840 for 2599 from Walt's on black friday. Fantastic set and you bettr know your stuff to setup your gear with AVR, BluRay, Cable Box, etc. It will tax your patience.

I'm trying to troubleshoot a problem with a Pace Tahoe cable DVR running Passport software and connected to the WD-92840 via HDMI. The first time I use the combo in the day, after the TV warms up, I see a black screen with the correct "Cable Box" input displayed on the screen. I cannot get audio or video to display even after power cycling the DVR or changing channels. The only way I can get the TV and DVR to work is by unplugging the DVR while the TV is on and wait for a total cold reboot.

When I first got the set, I used to be able to resolve the problem by switching channels, which took a while but eventually "triggered" the set into displaying the DVR's A/V signals.

I'm assuming that the TV does know that there's a device there since it does not show the blue screen indicating no signal, and I wouldn't have been able to setup the DVR on the TV as a "cablebox" in the first place if some sort of signal wasn't being delivered.

I will say that once the DVR has been cold booted, everything works perfectly even if I switch the DVR into "off/standby" mode or switch sources. Therefore it seems that the HDMI cable is OK. Any ideas?

I'm looking for suggestions on placement of a center channel speaker for my new 82740. I plan on getting a pretty low stand, and figure the speaker will need to sit in front of the TV on it. But has anyone found a good bracket or mount to place the speaker at the top of the TV?

I haven't purchased the center speaker yet, and could be influenced by a design that fit well.

Thanks!

Fortunately, I didn't have to do much because my prior DLP was a 73833 and the new one is the 82740. I just plugged everything in and everything worked as it did before even the Harmony 880 remote.

You can attach a shelf to the wall behind your tv at the correct height and depth to position just about any center speaker above it. I wouldn't place it on the tv at all.

Cable channel change delays beyond whatever delay is built into the cable box are typically at rez changes. Not always the ideal thing from a deinterlacing and scaling thing but you can usually reduce the delay by setting the cable box to 1080i, or 1080P.

I have a very different setup, my TV never sees anything but 1080P as I have an outboard Video Processor that does all the switching, scaling and deinterlacing and I am using an HP X280n Windows Media Center extender paired to Ceton Cable Card equipped PC for cable TV. I never have synch issues with the VP. I use only one HDMI port on the TV and the Video Processor has 8 I think.

Just another blank signature.

My cable box setup to support all resolutions and I also have one HDMI cable from receiver to TV, but i think i even have a delay between HD channels
