Closed Caption Issuehttp://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1246613
Yeah I don't use closed captions or watch tv so I don't know about that. I would call Panasonic and try and resolve the issue with customer service.
Just wanted to give some more impressions about the tv. I pretty much only play games so I have been logging a lot of time playing BFBC2 and other games on the ps3. Very small amounts of IR and has only lasted about 1 minute. Not an issue at all. When I first got the tv I could hear a buzz the first night, I have not heard it since. I does buzz if I put my head behind the tv, but I can't hear it other than that. The sound is also pretty good, I do have a sound bar but I tested out the speakers and they do a good enough job.
Still trying to figure out if this is a good tv for gaming, but as for watching movies and tv, you can't beat this tv for the price. They don't even make 50" lcd under $1000. Would recommend this tv to anyone for movies and tv. Will post back about the gaming once I have played it more.
