The 141 arrived in good shape and I immediately went on with the business of mounting it onto its floor stand. Had to do some tweaking because the display didn't sit quite level (though the stand base was closer to level). Luckily my buddy was patient while we sweated through the mounting process (my wife would never have been up to the task).
First thing I did was set up the IP connectivity and send myself E-Mails (verified, 0 hours usage
). I haven't started any break-in yet but we rushed right into our evening TV viewing while I was playing with various settings trying to get the right image. We were watching HD through my PC tuner via DVI-D so it took a bit of experimenting with color space and resolution settings on the PC and 141 to get things right. I also watched some SD off of my BUD satellite via composite video input (what, no S-Video connection?). I'm displaying SD in full mode for now to be easy on the display. This led to the wife commenting about the distortion which led to another tiresome (for her) discussion about TV video processing. I may switch this connection to component or more likely I will buy the DVDO Edge which would upscale SD and drive the 141 through HDMI.
Went out today and picked up a PS3 for Blu-ray disc playback. I'll check this out and see if I want to stick with it or get a stand-alone player. I'm about to go out and pick up some bias lights also. My buddy has an HD decoder that he's going to give me that works with my BUD equipment so I'm really looking forward to watching HD BUD tonight (if his decoder actually still works).
Gotta get back to setting things up so I'll post pics later. I've got a setup quite different from anything I've seen posted on AVS.
