Got the TV set up tonight but did not have a lot of time to play with it and probably wont for a couple of weeks because working lots of overtimethat will pay for the TV I guess
I was able to check it with a magnifying glass and did not see a chevron pattern as was expected. I only played around with the preset modes and overall thought the picture was pretty good, especially since at the moment I only have Dish SD programming. I'm working on the Dish HD upgrade soon, trying to get a better deal from them since I've been a Dish customer forever.
I did not think the off angle viewing was that bad, sure there was some difference, but even at 45 plus degree angle the picture was still pretty decent. The colors were not a good as they are on my smaller 32" LG. I only quickly compared them watching the same program, a cartoon at that, but I think you lose a little with the bigger panel and also like I said I haven't played with the adjustments yet. My 4yo thought it was great that Buddy the Dinosaur was almost as big as he is.
If you really want to see this new TV shine and can get just a few local channels via the antenna input you would be surprised at the quality. Even though Dish and DirecTV have HD they often compress and overprocess channels especially, especially feed through local channels. What inouts are you using?
For DVD or Blu-ray use the HDMI Expert 1 and/or 2 setting in posts #306 and #314, along with the
