No directly, perhaps, but relying on a collection of 3rd-party software as your TV's "smarts" is bound to be error-prone. Especially when those apps will be updated willy-nilly by their respective...

"Light's out, everybody!" I haven't seen the TV show, but have heard some of the radio episodes. And no off-axis issues with the radio shows... :grin:

I'd be happy just to get plastic cases that do not have holes in them ("green"? ha!), and that aren't made from plastic that is about as thin as a piece of lightweight paper.

The basic $15 model from Monoprice works fine (part # 5916). Use the plastic spacers that come with it to add a little extra space between the mount and the TV.

I had that problem with some settings - but I don't remember which ones. I just kept at it until the new settings "stuck.". Didn't use any tricks.

Are you referring to the display sleep time? That can be changed under Settings > Display > Sleep. I have it set to 1 minute - and it does work.

The AT-LP1240 is supposed to ground through the integrated RCA cable. But a separate, dedicated ground wire may sometimes work better. It won't hurt anything to try it.

Huge bezel? It's only a half inch or so. I would prefer a black bezel, but other than that it's fine. The feet are ugly - but I'm not using 'em.

I'm the 2nd owner so I don't have an exact age. I'd guess maybe 5 years. This is the 8033 model -- no 'Cinema' or 'II', etc.
