My next place will be a loft so this look appeals to me.

Thanks! Doing a little bit of redecorating right now, I will take some more pics of the tv and the room when the break in period is done. Only 90 more hours to go

The speakers are made my scandyna who used to be bluerroom. I bought them a few years ago, they sound good but but probably not worth the price.

I would be grateful if you could post the link for that file or pm me with it. I only see iso,nrg,ts and one for svcd.

i read some reviews on amazon about how it takes two bodybuilders to attach the stand to the TV and how you need a very large table to set the TV up. I have none of those things. Just flipping through the instruction manual is making me nervous....my piece of crap toshiba CRT is looking more attractive all of a sudden...wondering if i'm getting in over my head here.

As dsturbo said, two guys - of average size and strength - should be able to handle the display no sweat.

I was actually able to grab my 5080 out of the box and set it on a table by myself (I run about 265 lbs. but about 45 of that is not exactly muscle, so it's not like I'm The Hulk or anything). That display comes with stand attached, but if the stand had been separate I would have just laid it down on the couch first.

It was more awkward than heavy, although I really should have waited a few hours for someone to help me. I did have enough sense to have a buddy help me set it on the wall mount plate, though.

The 6020, panel w/o speakers or stand, weighs 112 lbs. With speaker and stand, it weighs just under 132 lbs.

If two men, women, or combination thereof can't lift 112-132 lbs, they maybe in need of some ridicule and subsequent trips to the gym (for comparison, a google search reveals that more than 50% of men between 5'6" and 5'10" weighing between 160-180 should be able to "deadlift" 150-200 lbs five times - I don't know if this is accurate, but it sounds about right). As noted by p59teitel, it should be a case of awkwardness, not heaviness.

I hung my 5080 by myself, although I do not recommend that (especially when the wall mount is at eye level). My father-in-law will be assisting me with the 6020. It is a case of awkwardness. I can benchpress 100lb dumbbells in each hand, but there is no way I could lift the 6020 up on the wall myself where the center of the TV is at eye level.

BTW - that deadlift comment is interesting. I would think it is easily true. I used to deadlift 600lbs in high school (weighed 210lbs), and there was a 5'6" 170lb tailback on my highschool football team that could deadlift 700lbs. He was a freak of nature, though. He ran a 4.4 sec 40 time as well.
post #611 of 14941
anyone figured out how to get into the service menu of the 6020? Or, is it not accessible?
post #612 of 14941
Does anyone know the dimensions of the stand for the 5020? Also when I was looking through the manual they had a section on how to put the stand on. Does the 5020 come with a stand or do you have to attach it?

As someone who suffered a back injury from lifting something heavy without bending my knees, let me warn you that bending over to lift something as heavy as even a 50 inch Kuro is taking one significant risk.

I agree. Keep the back straight and bend those knees. That is what I try to do, anyway.

As far as I know, it's exactly the same as previous gens.

Is he playing football for the NY Giants?

I'm looking forward to seeing them "repeat" this year on my PRO-150FD.

Comes attached. Page 16.

13 3/4" x 21 21/32". Page 136.

Does that apply to the 60" too? Do the 6020 and the 151 come with the base attached?

Nope. Time to call your buddies and family members. The 60 inchers require assembly.

I hear that. I herniated 2 disks and had 2 bulging disks at the same time lifting TV's. Wait for someone to help you before you do it yourself.
post #621 of 14941
Thanks. I guess I'll make sure my brother can come and help me assemble and lift it into place.

No, he washed out in college. Too much pot and lord knows what else.

I rooted for the G-men after my team was done.

I sold a front projector and had originally decided to hold off on buying a plasma until the NFL started back up in Aug/Sept, but I couldn't help myself. I finally decided that I wouldn't be happy with anything but a 60" plasma coming from fp. I can't wait to see NFL games on the 6020. I have been recording NFL Replay games to watch this summer on the new panel. I'm sure the quality will be even better on OTA HD direct to the TV.

From what I can gather the 50 inch (both elite and standard) come with the stand attached, but the 60 inch does not. However the attachment of the stand seems trivial provided you have a flat surface, protect the panel and use two people to put it on a table or whatever.

The question I have is related to the manual where it indicates that you need to "wire" it to the wall using cables to prevent it from tipping over. Is this really necessary or is this just liability protection? Does anyone wire it to the wall when using the stand?

It also seems that some panels are arriving broken. Ask for white glove delivery where the delivery company set the TV up for a relatively small amount extra. This is the cheapest delivery insurance one can get!!

Thank you for the update! Earlier today D-Nice sent me that link. I checked out all of the colors and it turns out two of the reds are of the same brightness. I PMed the creator of the images and he mentioned that in fact two of the red colors are at the same level. He did say though that it will still be ok to use those files for the break in. And at that same time, he said he will correct the files though he would not have time to do so till next week.

By the way, what website or webpage has this download?

Thanks!

I have an oppo 980 hooked up with hdmi to a pioneer 94thx and than to the 6020 with hdmi. When I play a dvd on the oppo in 480p the tv says 480p too, is there something i need to do on the kuro to get it to upconvert the signal?

Also, if the oppo 980 can output 480i via HDMI that would even be better.

Very cool! It looks like your Kuro expands it's colors on the wall too!

A question about your surrounds. Do they bother you that they are very close to ear level?

Having them on a higher stand "I think" will help with the surround sound audio mix better so it does not sound like they are coming from the speakers.

Cool set up by the way!!!
