The buzzing is there but I can't notice it when anything is playing through the speakers. There's a high pitch whine that never goes away but ,as the buzz, gets drowned out by audio.
Anyhoo, one thing that perplexes me is the green line on the right when using dot-by-dot for my HD cablebox (Motorola DCT3416). It's not there with BD. I tried searching but there was no definitive explanation nor solution. Anyone experience this?
Oh, the shiny bezel is a dust and cat hair magnet.
Congrats! Yes, it's a dust and cat hair magnet....a small price to pay.
The green line is a function of your cable signal. Many channels have this problem, more often an annoying couple of lines along the top. The only way to get rid of it is to use a screen size that adds a bit of overscan, like FULL.
The "high-pitched whine" doesn't sound normal, I'm afraid. You're saying it's always there, it's distinct from the panel buzz, and it's not
coming from the speakers? I wouldn't be too quick to dismiss it because it's drowned out by audio.
The Dark Knight
...you'll never hear anything
else with films like that. But try watching something like No Country for Old Men
(which has virtually no music) or the first twenty minutes of There Will Be Blood
(no music or
dialog). Extraneous environmental noises, especially those coming from the TV itself, can seriously detract from what are supposed to be dead quiet parts of movies. And again, a high-pitched whine just doesn't sound typical or normal.
