As for ivory vs. almond, it's really hard to tell them apart except side by side, and it varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. Here's...

2) The cost of including 3D capability on the chip is probably pretty low, but the glasses cost money. So it...

If it actually has an HDMI port, then the previous post isn't going to solve the problem.

It's hard to know for sure, but the answer is most likely yes. They probably built that like a window, with a "header" along the top front that's a 2x4 (or two of them) and another at the bottom. ...

Thanks - symptoms are a bit different, but cause is likely the same?

Anyway, I'm guessing your advice is basically because it's 7 years old doing the repair isn't worth it . . . .

Thx. On second issue, I had the sound mode set to something like "pure". Switched to "music" and I was all about the bass. (Already had speakers set correctly)
