I'm surprised I didn't answer this awhile back......as far as a new car goes, I've actually done just that before, actually! :D

I'm pretty sure it is something with the set now. Hopefully one of those 2 boards at least. Yesterday the picture just totally wigged out for a second then all the sudden probably 90% of the problem...

Technically, I imagine invalidating the warranty is probably yes as that is the norm generally speaking. That said, there are no tamper seals/stickers or screw markings, therefore kind of a who's...

The opposite is also true....besides the fabled cheap house brands hiding high end panels under the skin, you also never know what you are getting with some of the name brands. Best way to illustrate...

Help! Bright scenes are good, dark scenes TERRIBLE blocky mess

I recently picked up a 65" Sharp LE643u. Bright scenes look just fine on this set, but dark scenes are absolutely terrible....just a blocky bandy mess with no detail. It's kind of like trying to...

I think qz is mostly correct with target audience. I don't think there are a whole lot of people out there using an HTPC explicitly for that sort of non-standard...

Agreed. It's early so perhaps I'm looking too much into it or not closely enough, not firing on all cylinders yet....but is this a complete cable card capable DVR solution? As in not simply a WMC...

I don't particularly understand what you are after. The apps and all of a smart tv has no where near the functionality of an HTPC. I would not put them in the same boat at all. Most people who...

You are exactly on the right track here. As mentioned, onboard audio is pretty much a non-factor using a digital connection. As far as video goes, integrated video is plenty good enough for a basic...

Yes, if you desire having an SSD. An SSD isn't going to change anything in that respect...as far as power and all go. If you wanted a single drive, I would stick to conventional. SSD is great for OS...

That will function just fine as a basic HTPC to replace your cable boxes. You pretty much hit it on the head right off the bat in comparison to the huge overkill of most 1st HTPC posts.

Not sure about that wide resolution off the top of my head...but the more standard 2560x1440 is generally too much for integrated graphics. It can be done, but pretty much only via displayport since...

Makes much more sense now.


What are you using to control it all? Are you using MCE remote? a Universal? Multiple remotes?
