I'd like to box it up nice and secure to move, I just don't know how without the original packaging.

Anyone out there in the general Philadelphia area getting a 73" (any model) delivered soon that perhaps doesn't need their original packaging?

When my daughter moved, the movers built a custom crate for her Mits DLP. She had no issues whatsoever.

Thanks for the suggestion. I had spoken to a mover, and they mentioned it would be an extra $500 to $700 to crate my TV, so I was trying to find a more economical option. Do you happen to know how much they charged her for this?

Hello guys, hopefully and easy question for you all. Are the color setting you get while you're connected to the internet able to use the advanced settings we program into our 738s? I have mine calibrated the way I like it in all the inputs I use; however, when I get into the internet app my colors lose the advanced settings and give me the choice of Brilliant, Contrast and all the other settings without using what I've picked for my Antenna input that I was in when choosing the Internet function.

Ok after two months of researching and mulling around after the sudden death of my 64inch pioneer Elite rptv. I got to order my 73738 today and feel confident enough in the purchase to relax a little, I ordered through Amazon from Walt's because of the A to Z coverage recommended here ( for added peace of mind). I'll be using an Omnimount echo 63 inch stand, the 17 inch hieght is dead on center at my seated position, I also had to order a center speaker stand as I felt it would be to low in the new set up. The new stand is 13 inches high and my rather large center speaker (9 inches high) will sit just 1 inch or so below the screen itself ( at least I hope) I also cant wait to explore the Marvel Qdeo video processing in my Oppo 95, I know there are many who believe all Hdmi cables are the same but over the years of upgraded cables the difference in picture qaulity using AQ's YIQ-3 and YIQ-1 component cables made a believer out me, this led me to purchase the best cable for the price for bluray playback(Pangea's HD-24PC) the cable uses 24awg 4%silver plated PCOCC copper conductors(2mtrs for 79.00) and had rather favorable reviews on Audio Advisor's site. The cable I went with for my Comcast HD Dvr is from Monoprice as many here have given glowing reviews for its price. Also a Big shout out to all who post here, I sometimes forget how nice it is to have the wealth of Knowledge and personal experience on AVS I would love some setup advice for the Oppo 95 Mitsu combo ( you know best out put and settings stuff) because for the last couple of years I've been under a rock on 1080p and hdmi stuff and need to catch up quick! This is gonna be so

Her husband is in the Army, which paid for the move, so she didn't see the bill.

The depth of the 82838 shows 22.7" in the manual...what is the depth of the actual base that sits on the TV stand?

Thx

They brought it in, with my help, unpacked it, placed it on my stand, and I plugged in 1 HDMI cable and the power cord and turned it on before they even considered leaving. No damage to the box, and they seemed to be very careful. Other than needing my help, and a lot of it, to bring the tv in (both drivers were well over 60 and in poor condition) and some communication problems with the secondary courier, I had no problems and highly recommend this.

Walt's also answered my questions within a day of email through Amazon. Great service so far!

Now, I just have to figure out which glasses to get, and whether to go IR or DLP-Link.

Just did the same thing this morning, except I ordered through Paul's TV directly. They were offering the 82738 at a great price and throwing in the Mits Wireless USB Adapter for free. I am very excited. Been shopping and reading for a while now and with the prices dropping from the new models coming out, seemed like the right time. Don't have a shipping date yet.

Also ordered yesterday the Sanus SFV265 stand through Amazon (via Beach Camera) and spent much research time on that one too. It matches my existing rack well, it is the right height for me, has gotten good reviews and has enough clearance on the middle shelf for my center channel speaker. I was amazed how many stands did not have enough clearance. I do hope the stand arrives first.

I am almost 3D ready. Got the correct DirecTV receiver with the latest software & I already have a Sony 3D bluray player. There will be plenty to do when all this arrives and so I want to wait to shop for the right glasses, but for now I'm thinking I will go with the DLP link unless there are quality issues with those versus IR.

Next week could be fun.

Peace,

DM

Congrats! I had no such luck on my stand arriving first I ordered it a week and a half ago to make sure it would arrive before my 73738 would ( it was the Omnimount Echo 63)! At least that was the plan, apparently there was some kind of problem getting the order to the manufacturer So I opted for there cancelation offer at no cost to me. So the back on line I went to get a new stand as my set should arrive on Teusday It's already been 2 months of watching my 32 inch Sharp LCD and PC No luck in getting a stand here on time, unless with 2 day or 1 day shipping as this would kill my budget! So I decided to go out to look at my options and the last place the wife and I stopped was a local Conn's ( never would have thought) I was going to pass it up but the wife said try it! Walked in there my problem was solved at 199.00 a 62 wide 19 3/4 high and 19 inch deep stand in stock While there they had an 82738 on display on the 62x19 inch stand with an additional 8 inch riser and still looked fantastic! This made me Happy about the additional two inches over the Echo 63 which I got to see at another store while out and would have really been to low( Seeing this stuff in person in the real world can be shocking it was tiny and glad things worked out the way they did) and the lookes at me and said I thought I told you to get the 82 inch had to LOL. For those looking for stands check there website there is a nice selection I haven't seen anywhere else and I looked at almost every stand online

So I finally decided to give this 3D thing a try. So I purchased these glasses (Ultimate3DHeaven Ultra-Clear DLP Link compatible 3D Glasses). I was impressed with how everything worked and fairly simple.

So I put TRON Legacy on and man the picture is nice but did notice some issues with fast panning (up/down/left/right) and fast movement on the screen. Being my first 3D experience I'm not even sure how to articulate the problem.

If a character moved quickly from left to right, especially since TRON has the lighted suits, I clearly see the remnant/delayed images follow from left to right. Like when you turn on mouse trails in Windows and you move the mouse quickly and then the trail images follow it. Also similar to the horizontal panning issues that faster Hz are supported minimize but even worse than that and very noticeable and very annoying. I basically could not watch a movie like this as it would give me a headache.

I hope I'm making sense. Other than that, I was amazed at the quality. I'm viewing this on a WD-65838 and my source is the Oppo BDP-93. I have HDMI 1 going directly to the TV since I don't have an AVR that supports 3D.

AYColumbia, I would love to know if a different brand of DLP Link glasses solves the issue you are seeing with the UltraClears. Since your bluray player and TV are top notch, I'd try the glasses first. I saw Tron in theaters in 3D IMAX and don't remember seeing the artifact you are describing.

If a different pair of glasses fixes it, that certainly would be great information for me to know.

Peace,

I'm not willing to shell out more $$ for something I was reluctant to do in the first place to be honest. Although what you suggest already occured to me which is why I posted here. I figured others that already have these glasses may be able to respond regarding their experience and settings.

The glasses got high reviews from Amazon.com so I figured if it was this bad someone would have had a more negative review. I'm going to contact the glasses mfr and describe the issue and see what they say.

If your player is outputting checkerboard format, then you do not need HDMI 1.4 for 3D, a HDMI 1.3 receiver will work just fine for checkerboard 3D format. I use the Xpand X102 DLP link glasses and they work fine with my 65837 DLP set from my Panasonic 300 player.

Walmart has Vizio 3D glasses on sale for only $25 for a pair.

Will these work with the 60738?

Just checked and they are out of stock.
They should work, but you need the ir emitter.

I don't think they work with Mitsubishi televisions actually, only Samsungs do.

The weight of the 82" is almost 150LBS vs. the 73" which is 95LBS. Why the huge difference in weight because of a mere 9"?

I believe it has a more substantial frame around the screen to keep from warping.

The other question would be is if the extra $650 & 55 LBS. is worth the extra 9" of the 82" vs. the 73"?

I am undecided between the two and I don't know how much of a difference that extra 9" of screen area would make.

The other issue that comes into play is whether my TV stand can hold the 150 LBS. I know it can hold the 95LBS but 150LBS is pushing the limits. I would then have to buy another TV stand $$

Depends on your wallet. I'd say it's worth it, if you can afford it.

However I think at this point, all of this has been laid to rest and these dlp tvs are considered an excellent value.
Here are my questions for my 65738 which will arrive on Wed
1. Will all 3D Bluray players work?
2. How do I connect to Vudu?
3.How can I connect to Netflix?
4.Can I use the hdmi out on my computer to the set?
5. Do I need a wireless adapter?
I have ordered a pair of dlp link glasses-I believe this is all needed?
Thanks

I don't know about all, but it works with my Panasonic BDT350.

2. How do I connect to Vudu?

Connect an Ethernet cable from your router or modem and then use the "Internet" button on remote to go to Vudu and enter your account information.

3.How can I connect to Netflix?

See number 2. above

4.Can I use the hdmi out on my computer to the set?

Don't know haven't tried it but it should work since I've tried it on my 73833 DLP

5. Do I need a wireless adapter?

Don't know since I have it connected via ethernet cable.

I have ordered a pair of dlp link glasses-I believe this is all needed?

Yes, this is all besides the 3D player and content.

Thanks

See comments above

As long as you have the latest firmware on the TV, any 3D Bluray player should work fine with the player.

Yes, but you may want to create a custom resolution so you can see the entire Windows desktop due to the way the TV overscans the image. This has been discussed earlier in this thread.

If you want to use a wireless network, you either need a compatible USB wireless adapter OR a wireless ethernet bridge which would connect to the network port on the TV and then the bridge would connect to your wireless network. The USB adapter is most likely a lot less expensive, but a bridge can work with multiple devices which might be handy if you have multiple things near the TV that all need to connect to the wireless network.

I do not claim that my recommended settings are necessarily the ideal settings for all of the sets.

I received my 82738 today...impressed so far, but I havent been able to get the 3D working with Directv. I have tried setting 3D to auto, side by side, and reversing the L-R.

I have Ultra CLear DLP Link glasses. Nothing seems to work.

Any suggestions?

Which dvr/receiver do you have?
I believe that the HR-20 is not 3D capable. If that is your problem, D* will replace it with another model.

I do have a receiver that is capable of 3D. The picture shows up blurry (like it would without glasses) I turn the glasses on, they blink, and then nothing happens.

I talked with Mitsubishi, and they do not have an answer, they said a specialist will call be back on the 2nd business day.

I'm curious if it is the Ultra Clear DLP Link glasses, I have tried 2 pairs though.
