By the way, even if you're right about the problem (that's it's a failed backup which is not about backing up your picture settings) the fix isn't to run a manual backup, the fix is finding out why there's an MDU issue and that means a service call.
I appreciate your comment. If I am right about the problem that it's a failed backup and an MDU issue, what sort of impact does this have on the life of the panel or picture quality?
I had bought this TV open item with 200 hrs of use so I thought it was relatively new. I am within my return period to bring it back and I will if I find any major problems with it. To add to this situation, I also bought an open item XBR8 that I have sitting right next to it for picture quality comparison. One of them is going back
I have always been an LCD person and very loyal to Sony for their quality products, but I had to buy the Elite to see what every videophile talks about. I'd like to think I have the pinnacle of both technologies in my living room duking it out. I am leaning towards the plasma for it's overall more natural look. My main concern with the plasma is it's reliability and buzzing issues.
Anyways, I'd appreciate your input as to the MDU and failed backup problem. If I am within my warranty period to have a Pioneer tech service the display I just may do that. Do they typically make house calls or will I have to haul this over to them?
Thanks again for your comments.
