Yes, my mistake again. Trying to get help on the forum is difficult for a third party that isn't me and I wasn't there. I have to make some assumptions and can't really get the story straight.

Make sure your network connection type is set to "home" instead of "public" in Windows. If it is set to public, the firewall is much more strict. Once you've verified that, make sure that the ports...

I don't understand what you mean by "pausing the set". On my 9G remote I have a pause button, but it doesn't cause dimming, and I don't think he's actively pausing anything. I'd assume he's just...

My apologies, I misunderstood him. He says once it dims, it stays dimmed, but everything still works fine...it's just at 50% brightness or so, until he power cycles. So he still sees video, hears...

Hope someone can help a friend of mine. He has an 8G Elite and says that if the image doesn't change for a long time, the screen dims. Problem is, when he then unpauses, the screen still stays frozen...

I really want to like multichannel audio, so I searched for the music I most wanted to hear in multichannel, and it wasn't available. So then I looked through what actually existed...

Yep, I would buy that theoretical Samsung model in a heartbeat and I'd be willing to pay quite a bit more for it! Unfortunately Samsung is leaving the plasma market, and the Panny's are long gone.

I have better than 20/10 vision and I couldn't see the pixels and grid any more when I got far enough back from the screen. I can only estimate the distance, but I'd guess it was around 8-10 feet. At...

I live near there and would be willing to help ship something that's reasonably durable. I don't want to be involved in shipping an entire TV though; I just don't want any responsibility with that.
