It's my understanding LG removed 3D because not having it allowed them to make the screen brighter. It wasn't a cost saving measure. It was done to make HDR brighter.

It's a low voltage cable. While it may not be officially CL2 rated, I would run it behind a wall without worry.

Look for something in settings for where the sound is transmitted and make sure it's set to HDMI. I think there may be some checkboxes you have to set also.

My son had a similar issue a year or so...

Sounds like you have a lemon. Happens to all manufacturers although probably more with Onkyo.

I would see if you can return it and get a Yamaha. At a minimum, Onkyo should repair it.

Interpolation may be happening. The thing is it's much more noticeable when watching film than live TV.

The W series are the coolest TVs by far. It's on the top of my list for my next TV. I just with they would offer something 70"+ for under 10 grand.

There's not much difference in the pre stage between a receiver and pre. And the cost is about the same. So, if you need amps, the receiver is the way to go. I would get a receiver anyway because you...

You can't go wrong either way. I think OLED is generally better, but the ZD9 is better with some content. For example, I think the ZD9 looks better in very bright scenes with little to no contrast,...

I have 4 subs. One in the middle of a long side of a 24'x16' room and 3 in corners. Mainly placed due to aesthetics. The more subs you have, the less critical it is for them to be optimally placed.

1. No. Sealed subs can get room gain at very low frequencies more so than ported since ported dies below the port tune. The effect increases as the largest room dimension decreases.

If the door is closed, you don't need to include it.

My advice is to start out with one good sub and if it isn't enough, buy another and so on. It's almost impossible to tell by looking at a...

OLED looks the best. My next TV 65" or smaller will be OLED. Might even get the 77" if it ever drops below $10k.

So much will have changed by then. Who knows...
