It's the first THREAD (sticky keeps it at the top). You are looking at the posts within the Pro owners thread. Get out of this thread and look at the listing of all threads in the RPTV forum. You'll see it at the top.

The pics and measurements of the stand are in a thread of their own.
It's the first sticky thread at the top of the Rear Projection section of the forum.

That setting is then across the board regardless of which piece of equipment is sending the signal. So I could have several different settings for my DVD player for example..

I have not seen any discussion about this limitation by current and future owners. Why is this not important to you?

I am a current owner. I've had the 61FH96 for about 2 weeks now. What I explained isn't important to me. I was just pointing out how it works since the review had it a wrong.

My 61" has an estimated delivery date of 12/30. My fiance will not like this, since it is our wedding date.

Now I have to decide which is more important ...

j/k honey I love you

The Height was 13.75"
The Width was 64.125"
The depth was 24"

Quality of the stand is decent. There won't be any bowing with the TV on it. I think it looks very nice with the JVC Pro. I do wish it were a couple inches taller, but it is pretty nice. I would attach a pic with my pro on it, but my cam is in the car and it is freezing out there plus I am lazy. Maybe I will take some pics tomorrow.

I'm sorry my box is now gone. I think we fit it fine through a 32" door. Maybe it was a 30" door. I'm not sure. That wasn't much of a problem. Also, it is really easy to take the unit out of the box. the box slips off the top and you can pick up the tv with two people. You would be able to get it into any door then. It isn't that heavy.

1) Picture settings are global, not localized to a specific input. My 10 year old sony has localized picture settings.
2) Slow input switching (3..5 sec/input) and NO direct input switching. Major issue in a typical HT setup.
3) NO 1080p input capability (no surprise here).
4) Lousy user interface.
5) Color temperature less accurate than other 1080p displays.
6) Poor contrast ratio in Theater Pro mode (<26 ftL), meaning it needs total darkness.
7) Non uniform screen focus ("noticiably fuzzier towards the screen edges").
8) NO ATSC TV guide on screen program. My six year old Samsung ATSC STB has this feature.

All this for ~$6000 retail? Give me a break!!! Certainly looks like I got taken since my 61" pro is in transit from the power buy purchase. I am keeping my fingers crossed, hoping the PRO edition is slightly better in some of these shortcomings. I won't be suprised if this posting gets deleted since it may affect the AVS power buy sales. Too bad, no PB return policy.

1) Picture settings are not as global as he stated.
2) Mine takes less than 3 seconds to switch inputs. It isn't fast, but it isn't 3.5 seconds. More like 2.
3) 1080P works for me on my Pro.
4) The user interface isn't that bad. It isn't as good as the SXRD, but it works fine for me.
5) My Pro seems to have a very accurate color temperature. I haven't pulled out a sencore to measure though.
6)You mean low light in theater pro mode. The contrast ratio looks pretty dang good in that mode when the lights are off. It is a great lights out mode! The Standard mode ups the brighness considerably. There is even a burn your eyeballs bright mode if you go for that. I actually like this feature.
7) Mine has uniform screen focus. I thought he was talking about a color shift not focus. This is a common lcos problem. I haven't been able to see any of that yet. I just installed my OPPO this evening and haven't had a chance to put up different ire screens to see color uniformity.
8) I use dish network so I guess this one doesn't bother me. Maybe it is a big issue for some. There was something for OTA programming information that I noticed on mine, but it didn't seem all that great.

As for the reviewer, I think he said a lot of positive things. As for my personal experience, I have no regrets on the purchase. Let us know how it goes when you receive yours. I don't think it will be nearly as bad as you fear.

If you would kindly point me to the rule, I'll be sure to refrain from such questions in the future.

I just checked my email and my television is supposed to arrive in the area on 12/28/2005. I'm Bummed to say the least - I really thought the television would be here by Christmas.

My understanding is that the truck it is currently on delivers it to a hub station and then they schedule a time to deliver the television. This could mean the tv won't be in my family room for a few days later. Do I have this right?

Thats where mine is as well, I just called Roadway, from OH there will be a direct truck to Denver, then to Boulder, thats where I'll pick mine up, this might save me 1-2 days.
Roadway said it could sit on the dock for 1 to 2 days before going out to a residential delivery.
ETA is listed as 12/28.

I keep seeing people mention PowerBuys on the Pro JVC. Then I see the link to the AVS Forum Specials on TVAuthority.

Are these the same thing?

I can't find the Pro versions in the TVAuthority section.

How do I go about participating in a PowerBuy for the Pro or Consumer 61" JVC?

Thanks,
Brian

How funny!

I got pictures sent to me from my dealer of when they shipped out my set!

He showed a herd of them. see attached!

I have a question on the label as you can see below the HD-P61R1U it says "Manufactured under license from BBE Sound, Inc."

Is this some sort of parent company, or is this like a Dolby thing?

Thanks for the quick response.

Still I was hoping someone could explain the difference between PowerBuy and TVAuthority.

TV Authority is a different vendor than where you would purchase it if you went with the powerbuy. Getting it with the current power buy would mean you're purchasing it from AV Science, up in Rochester, NY.

Brian,

TVA sells the consumer models only, they have an AVS forum price and advertise on this forum.

The Powerbuy is for the PRO models. The company that runs this forum (AVA Science) is a PRO dealer, and is filling orders on the PRO.

Joe has arranged a group buy with AV Science to obtain better pricing than if you were to get the Pro model locally.

Hope that helps.

Bob

Yeah, I saw that too and asked him about it. The date on the camera is wrong.

I bet he has a VCR at home that flashes...12:00....12:00...12:00

Wow, I read the article and didn't come away with the same negative feeling you did and I have not been a big fan of the JVC D-iLAs. David's summary:

Quote:


BOTTOM LINE It's hard to sweat the small stuff when an HDTV performs as well as the JVC HD-70FH96. This giant HDTV manages to combine the high resolution of 1080p with most of the other characteristics that make a great-looking image. Its biggest shortcomings a clunky user interface and the couple of missing features noted above shouldn't deter anybody who values picture quality above all else.

Sounds pretty positive to me.

Bob,

It must be something like Dolby licensing, as you say. Here is a link that lists the categories of products that benefit from their patented "world class" audio enhancing technology:

http://www.bbesound.com/lic/index.asp

So, Bob, you might have a scoop here! I wonder if this is another benerfit of going with the Pro vs. the regular JVC units?

Now we need a shot of the regular herd to confirm...

"BBE High Definition Audio" is listed as a feature of the consumer set.

Hmm. That leaves the auto-iris, the color temperature, and AVS's awesome price for bragging rights. Still works for me! Now I just need to have my order processed by the GREAT BUNCH Of GUYS AT AVS!

I'm in southern Ohio and mine is also in Akron at the moment. My scheduled delivery is Monday. I might be able to pick it up in Cincinnati (West Chester) Friday late or Saturday morning. I understand it's an 11PM Roadway crew that is coming in tonight that will be handling where our sets go next. They work 24x7 but just because the trailer is in Akron doesn't mean it's being worked on yet.

Anyone know the packing dimensions to know whether the TV will fit in the back of a minivan??
