You know what happens when you assume.
Now back to the thread.
I returned my LMC-1 due to a bug when you rewind or 7 second replay.
It took almost another 7 seconds for the sound to come back,
negating the reason I went back. I think this problem was due to auto-polling which you can't turn off.
I thought I'd get use to it but couldn't.
I also briefly had the center channel bug they talk about in the avs123 forums, but it went away.
The remote sux. Select/enter is not in the circle (it's actually next to it were the "right" button is) so I was constanly going to the wrong place.
I know, use a Harmony (and I do) but I tweak my receiver and TV a bit and a universal remote is not as easy.
Some posters like the 2 channel mini-amp in it, but to me, the only sound amp in there should be for headphones, which it lacks.
The firmware was not field replaceable, so I returned before the 30 day period. I believe they have come out with a dongle so you can now update firmware at home. I wish I would have kept the amp, and reordered the pre/amp when all the bugs are gone.
