Since I don't have any of the major problems described here (my speakers don't hum in the slightest, and I can't hear the internal fan at all) maybe I should hold off on the firmware upgrade...I was just hoping it would fix the syncing problem I'm having with my HTPC.
About the only major beef I have right now is that the TV takes a significant amount of time to warm up and actually display a picture (approximately 40-60 seconds from a cold start, but when you are waiting it feels like 5 minutes).
Interestingly, your ser# is only about 25 units diff than mine, so conceivably built same place/shift, everything...mine with buzz, yours without...doesn't look like anything will be learned from the build.
Spoke with HP this morn...this particular rep affirms what others have also indicated A) firmware will NOT remedy the speaker buzz ...and B) techs are not satisfying any service calls to attend to the problem at this time as they have no viable solution (ie they don't know what's wrong)
Sounds like they are prodding away on guinea pigs internally for the moment...
Also, follow up with them (or monitor AVS news) as I am pretty concern that they are not tracking this well enough for there to be any contact back to the owners who have complained once solution is found...similarly, any case# you may have had, might have auto-closed due to inactivity (special)
On a brighter note...they are among us...when I indicated I'd been following an owners forum for current affairs, he immediately knew it was AVS and said that many of the CS and tech reps are regular visitors...I would not be surprised if there were to be an informal announcement HERE, once situation either is resolved or (heaven forbid) worsens !!
guess I'll be cranking up the volume trying to drown out the dog whistle for the next while.
