New TV Unresponsive

My son has had the 75" 850D for a couple of weeks, and tonight he called me to say the TV would not respond to any remote commands. He changed the remote batteries, and still nothing. The only thing...

I don't own this TV, so I'm not sure (but my guess is that the TV does NOT have any lip-sync adjustment). That is usually a feature on certain AV receivers.

Good to hear that. From the reviews I have read, the Sony was given a slight edge for sports, but the Samsung handles motion well, too. Another thing mentioned in a review of the 6300 is that it has...
