As of now, most interactive content is NOT available via cable card. Also. JVC will not display analogs via the digi input with a card inserted. Thus the "Digital" coax input in addition to the "VF/UHF 75ohm" input. The digi is for the card, the 75ohm for the analogs (requires a good 2-way splitter).
To access interactive cable content (on demand/payperview/guide) you would need a 3rd line running to a STB and then input via HDMI or Component to your JVC.
I got my Comcast cable card today (after they managed to kill my STB DVR :/ ) It DOES improve digi SD content, but here is the catch... it seems to have the same signal switching delay as when you switch inputs! UGH..
As for "spots/smudges" on the panel, my replacement set has at least 3 3/4" - 1" visible defects (noticeable with motion on bright backdrops)... I immediately called my VO to swap this one out as well this morning. If you are within your 30days, I would immediately exchange that set.
This goes for the rest of you with Color splotches, color banding, alignment and convergence issues, pincushion problems, dead inputs, etc.
RMA those sets!
JVC NEEDS to see a spate of returns NOW if indeed there is a QC problem with this run of the FH96 series, so whatever the problem is it can be corrected before the FNs start tome off the line. My real concern now is that the seeming RUSH to push the new FN (within 2 quarters of the launch of the FH?>>?) may indicate a more serious quality issue with the optics rather than a production glitch...
