Can someone help me understand why I have really good digital signals on nearly every channel (90s or better on my DirecTV box) except for KGO, which is in the 20s and 30s and unwatchable...

I think that's right. $2300 is basically still 50% over where it needs to be and about 30% over where it should be to compete directly. But you can now see those prices happening in the visible...

Always a good sign when they don't put out a price out there. Means it's likely to be a great value, especially with them sourcing panels from a company charging $7K for a similar TV!

Oh, wait....

It doesn't feel hard to me at all to make a controller for this. It's a 384-pixel display.

The wiring of the LEDs is different on a locally-dimmed display than an old-school full array in that you...

Of course, they didn't sell many of those Kuros then and the financial crisis wasn't the only reason... If LG hopes to sell more (they do), they'll need much lower prices...

I'm sure you're correct. It's a bragging rights product. I was just speculating on what could change down the road. And if anyone would contemplate that future, it's Vizio.



That may be true....

One interesting thing about the Sharp panel on the 120" is that logic dictates (requires?) it be a half sheet from the 10G fab.

No one else can do anything like this because no one else has a 10G...
