I preordered a unit from amazon and received it last week.
Four issues I'm having.
1. I am unable to get any sound to play via HDMI connected to my (Sharp LC-42D64U). The sound comes out fine on my other LCD TV though. (Mitsubishi LT-52144)
Sound Option chosen is the HDMI LPCM and I've also tried the HDMI Raw. None of those work for the Sharp.
Depends on the TV manufacture, and apparently the Sharp is not as "friendly" as the others. We've had a couple other similiar issues. There will be a new firmware which allows selection for HDMI dual channel and multi channel sound, which MAY fix the issue. We will be announcing it by end of this month.
2. The Fan noise is annoyingly loud I can hear it humming from about 10 ft away. I usually keep it next to my DVD player and unless I have the volume of the content playing at a certain level, you can hear it.
The FAN should be no more than 20 dBA, under normal circumstance, you should only hear a low "hum" from close range. In your case, i would definitly check the wiring make sure it's not shake out of the socket. You can do so, by remove the rear screws and check the black and yellow fan wire and see if it's touching the fan when turned on.
3. Unable to connect to a Hidden Wifi Broadcast. I'm unable to manually enter my SSID to connect to my Wifi Network. It shows as (hidden) but doesn't give me the option to name it. I am using the patriot box office Wifi USB adapter.
I'll check that for you, but you should be able to connect regardless it's hidden or not.
4. Any future plans to support more languages ? I'm unable to get Korean subtitles to play correctly. I've sent an email to Patriot support last week but have not received a response.
We are actually working on Korean interface right now, but honestly it may take a little time. May be next Jan?
