Then why would an emitter on the IR sensor not work on the DCX 3400? That's crazy. The remote works beautifully but as soon as it goes through the Xantech block it does not.

Thanks mdavej. The Denon actually works beautifully using a stick on IR emitter (and since it's all behind doors, great). But the Motorola... nothing :( And I cannot find a single place that has a...

DiveFan, that should not matter. Even if you returned the TV now (getting, say, $399 back) and bought a new one for $299, then you could return the new one within 90 days still. So they would have an...

That's why I am only looking at Costco here. Good return policy, for 90 days.

If you bought it at Costco in the last three months I'm sure they'll match the price: it's much better for them than you returning it and getting one at the new price.

Thanks DiveFan. I ended up ordering a 40" Sony W600B (still within budget). It does not have a Roku but has four HDMI ports so that is nice and one of them is MHL.

Speaking of that I think you can...
