Should I be returning this back to Best Buy for an exchange?
I personally think people make too much of this auto iris thing.
You just said it worked when you turned it off and restarted it.
I believe that it is similar to when you get the HDMI handshake issue on some components.
Plan and simple, the startup just had a hiccup, went out of sequence of order of startup, as long as it doesn't happen during the viewing of the movie or show, I wouldn't worry.
Maybe I am wrong, but every time I hear someone complain about this auto iris issue is at startup, which further supports my "handshake"/sequence theory.
