Wow, surprised to see this thread revived! I still use mine (semi) regularly - 10 hours a week at the most. I have had it 5 trouble-free years, and I am still impressed by the picture. I have been targeting a 1080P projector for 3 years but have not been able to pull the trigger. My Z4 likely has quite a bit of life with the current bulb, so I don't know when I will take a serious look at an upgrade. And I have upgrade-idis as much as anyone.....
What is your experience watching football on these Samsung plasmas? I have a C7000 (with service mode to C8000 change), and football does not look terribly good. It depends on the camera and action: for example, when a player is knocked out of bounds and is jogging back to the field, the camera will often zoom in slightly on that player - and everthing in the background pixelates. Other scenarios do the same thing to some degree. Overall, I prefer my older 60hz...
Just installed my BDP-93 in a dual video setup - Movie Room: 720P Projector with HDMI Input (Sanyo Z4) AV Receiver with HDMI 1.3 output (Denon 4308CI) TV Room: (physically in another room but with wiring from the Movie Room) 1080P 3D Plasma (HDMI Input) Note, in all scenarios the HDMI resolution and AUDIO are set to AUTO. 1st scenario: HDMI1 to AV Receiver to 720P Projector (HDMI1 set as primary) HDMI2 to 3D Plasma Video works fine in the Movie Room,...
Is this an advertised special? I was in a Fry's today (before seeing your info), and the display price was not $1399???
I disconnected everything, removed the set from the wall, and then took the set over to my brother's house in a neighboring city. He also has Time Warner. Guess what? The problem was seen on MY set at HIS house too! My brother has a Panasonic TV with no problems, but it's only a 480P TV (the QAM tuner still accepts 720P and 1080i though). I did one more test while at my brother's house - I connected a UHF antenna to my set and was able to pull in FOX to test...
Well, I tried scanning again using the HRC cable type - and there were no DTV stations identified. I then scanned using the IRC cable type. This time it found many stations, then went through a very long process of deleting scrambled channels. This found all my normal DTV channels, but the problem still exists (and still only on ABC and FOX).
Nope, no other QAM tuners in the house. Looks like I will need to go ahead and try bringing the TV to another persons house. I don't really want to remove it from the wall though.... I do recall seeing the multiple cable types during the auto programming process. Heck, that is worth a try! Thanks!
I confirmed the problem appears in panning scenes AND when the camera is still - or even when there is no motion at all. IOW - it happens all the time. Dialog is a full second or so behind the video.
Yes, I have tried with both "OFF" and "AUTO". Same deal with either setting.
Good suggestion.......but unfortunately I have tried an indoor UHF antenna and was not able to pull in ABC or FOX. I am thinking I will take the TV off the wall and take it over to a friend's house who also has Time Warner and who has better luck with OTA signals. Hopefully this will prove something out....
