Make sure you have the TV view mode set to normal in 720p mode, the tv has different view modes for the different resolutions at least 1080 vs 720 in 1080 I have it in dot by dot but in 720 its on normal. I don't have bars around black ops. Also make sure you have your ps3 set to widescreen (16:9) not 4:3.

My bad. When I set Film Mode on High I definitely see it. Objectionable? I don't know. Different? Absolutely.

I definitely love this TV, I have had it almost a year now with no issues!

I did have one question, does anyone have the discrete IR codes for it(even more specifically for Power On)?

Thanks a bunch!

Hey guys, I started off with the 78un then a week later another store had the 88un for $1 more then a pay for the 78un, lol so back to the store the 78un went and in the house came the 88un, ( wife was annoyed but I'm the boss) ha ha ha, any how I love this set, I got 3 friends who also pick one up. But I do have one question? I'v red almost the hole thread and one guy ask what I'm going to ask but it really never got answered, I just got a onkyo tx-sr608 HT receiver, now all my consoles are running in game mode for reduced lag, and I have my blu-ray and cable box setup with tv modes on like film mode and fine motion, and they where all setup to the tv inputs, so now I need to run all these in my onkyo, but there's only one hdmi output so what should I do for my console setting and tv/movie settings? I hope you guys understand what I'm trying to explain.

Hey guys I don't want to start a new topic for this? Anyone out there? Thanks

I have everything ran into my Onyko TX-SR606 and one cable ran out to the TV, I leave it in game mode watching cable and gaming and I switch to custom when watching blu-rays at night. You can run everything though 1 HDMI into the TV and then just switch profiles for different desired settings.

Its the AV Mode button under the cover on the remote. You can set up different settings for each HDMI port and you can do the same thing by going in and changing settings in the different Modes as well, I only use Game and Custom myself.

Input 5 on the side of the TV is best for gaming btw so I use that one and would suggest it if you game as well. It's recessed enough that you can't see the cable. Also get some good HDMI cables from Monoprice.

How so? And is each input set up differently?

Input 7 also gives you the Game Mode option. This is how I have my Onkyo TXNR708 setup. Actually, I THOUGHT I had it in game mode the whole time (thought I used the same port as Dish receiver...) and just set it back a couple of weeks ago. I much much like the lack of film mode. It's a whole new TV, in an even better way, all over again.

Hey Now,

Selecting 'Game Mode' turns off all video processing to give minimal lag (>30ms) from what others report

Its stated in the user manual #5 is the gaming port. I'm assuming it has something to do with viper drive which they used in the past.

I have only ever used input 5 but I don't know why all the inputs wouldn't allow you to select game mode can anyone verify this? I do know for certain that input 5 is the one you want, and with that, game mode and good hdmi cables this set has 0 discernible lag.

I wonder how much the picture difference will be when streaming Netflix over my xbox. If I ask the wife to do anything out of the norm with the remote, the world pretty much comes to an end.
post #1364 of 1527
You can use game mode on any input port - especially since gaming could be anything - composite, component or HDMI. The whole Input #5 thing has never been proven to be better with actual numbers.

I keep it in game mode all the time I only put it in custom when watching blu-rays at night and sometimes I don't remember to do it then.

My TV is turning off in the middle of shows and movies. It will go blank and then the info in the top right comes back on and the picture comes on. Now the PS3 has started losing the picture in the middle of movies. The HDMI cables have to be plugged and unplugged over and over, and sometimes it works to just turn the TV off and on. I'm getting very annoyed.

Does anyone have any suggestions or thoughts? The PS3 is plugged into #6 with a Monster HDMI cable.

^^^ Man, I don't need another HDMI cable. Did you even read my post? My TV feed is not via HDMI so another cable will not affect that. Also, why would a $5 HDMI cable fix the problems if the a Monster cable was causing them?

Could someone who knows about TVs please comment? I"m looking for something like "the panel is shot", "these TVs have HDMI port power issues, do this...", etc.

You didn't say anything about how your TV was being fed so don't act like that when someone tried to help you. Being a jerk just makes people want to help you less. You did comment on having to plug and unplug your HDMI cables. Are your way overpriced monster cables new or some you've had a while? Because they could be an issue then. Just because someone charges $50+ for a cable doesn't mean there good cables. Monoprice has a long standing history of providing great cables at great prices. If your having issues with all inputs randomly shutting off is your TV adequately vented (overheating)? If the TV isn't overheating I'd be contacting Sharp maybe you got a bad MB. No one else in this thread that I've seen has commented with a similar problem.

I've been playing a lot of Xbox 360 lately on this TV and noticed that all the text on the dashboard and the popup messages are very fuzzy. All my games are crystal clear so it doesn't make sense. I am playing the 360 on game mode and I have it connected to the TV using an HDMI cable in input 5. I never had this problem on my Panasonic plasma so I know it's not the 360. I also have the 360 set to 1080p if that matters.
post #1372 of 1527
The Xbox 360 GUI is not 1080p native, the text always looks fuzzy. It does on my TV, and my projector. The PS3, on the other hand, has a 1080p GUI and looks perfect.

It won't ever be sharp, so don't worry about it.
post #1373 of 1527
Can someone tell me where I can see the firmware version on the TV? It didn't seem obvious to me. Maybe it was the multiple glasses of wine clouding my eyesight!
post #1374 of 1527
Press menu, digital setup, Identification.

The only thing under Digital Setup on my TV is "Software Update." I went out and bought a flash drive in order to update the software, and wouldn't you know, my TV already has the most up-to-date firmware.
post #1376 of 1527
Just an update.

I am still getting the loss of picture to black screen and then back every so often. Other wise the display has grown on me. I will keep trying to work with Sharp on the loss of picture issue.

That reminds me how I saw my screen flash black once this week. I had completely forgetting about the issue, and then it happened.
post #1378 of 1527
I must be missing the obvious, but does anyone know the dimensions of the holes on the back? I don't see it in the manual. We want to mount the TV. Thanks

I also still have the "black screen" issue once or twice a week. I have called sharp several times about it and they have no answer. They usually tell me to reset the tv, which of course solves nothing. Anyways it's a great set that has a minor annoyance I can live with.
post #1380 of 1527
I called sharp to ask about the screw size for the mount, and he said the screws are in the TV already, and are under some rubber boots.
I sure don't remember that at all.
I'm not with the TV right now, and I won't be for a week, he also said the screw size is a 400mm M6 12mm. What does that mean?
I'm thinking more like a 6MM X 12MM
