Official Sharp 2011 LC-70LE732U Owner's Thread [NO PRICE TALK] - Page 125

post #3721 of 3822
I just purchased the Sharp LC-70LE732U and was wondering if you knew if this beast could be mounted and if so what type of wall mount to buy.

Thanks

Thank you for the quick response. I was actually hoping for a more specific answer. I have used 'search' and find mixed answers on the subject. So I ask again 1) can it be mounted? and 2) if so what is the recommeded bracket?

Thanks

Can anyone tell me how to manually change the TV screen/channel resolution from 480p? We have a direct HDMI line from our DirecTV box but mode keeps showing 480p.

Thanks

I think you more than likely have your DirecTV box set only to output at 480. The TV should auto detect the resolution especially over HDMI.

What model of DirecTV receiver do you have? Are you tuning to an HD channel? SD channels will show as 480 unless you have your DirecTV box set to up convert.

Allow me to do the work for you.
My box says MLB-14T BLK
Now back to football...

Of course it can be mounted. There are dozens of mounts available, there is no single "recommended" mount. Do not buy over priced big box store mounts. Try Amazon, you will find plenty to choose from. First decide what you need the mount to do. Does it need to pull out form the wall or swivel? Those will cost more. I got a very basic Digicom Universal Flat/Tilt Mount for Flat Panel TVs, does everything I need for less than $30.

Monoprice model #4174 gets very high customer reviews & mine works great. Under $30
post #3729 of 3822
I got this onehttp://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000WL6YY8/ref=oh_details_o04_s00_i00 I'm happy with it, more than $30.00!

Hello everyone... Hoping someone might be able to help me out with a small issue...

I just bought this TV and have it setup with a Denon AVR-1910 receiver. Everything connects to the Denon (WMC, PS3 and XB360) with a single HDMI cable from receiver to TV (Input 1).

This is the exact setup I had with the previous TV, a 52" Sony XBR.

Under the old setup, the Denon was set to pass HDMI signal through to the TV even in Standby (receiver could be "off" and I could still view and hear TV using TV speakers.

I swapped out the TV's and am now having an issue with the Sharp not behaving the same.

I've experimented with the Aquos Link being enabled or disabled. With it enabled, the Denon always turns itself on - a behavior I do not wish and sound comes out the speakers connected to the receiver. With Aquos Link DISabled, the receiver stays off and the video signal is passed through to the TV - but no sound. Nothing I can do is changing this...

Does anyone have a Denon receiver with HDMI standby enabled and this TV in which video and audio is enabled?

I know this isn't the answer you are looking for - you paid a lot for your home theater system and spent a lot of time settng it up. Why do you now want to defeat it for TV programs, many of which are in 5.1 or another surround format.
post #3732 of 3822
Fair point. Mainly for ease of use for the wife... If it's just TV and WMC it's pretty easy.

I have never heard the built in speakers of my Sharp. Going on 2 years.

Sorry but I accidentally posted this in a new thread and I think it belongs here since I have a LC-70LE732U.

Amazon Instant Video

I just signed up for Amazon Prime that includes free instant videos - movies, & TV shows. How can I add Amazon to the list of content providers on my television?

I think you will need an external box such as a Roku.

Well, you could purchase a Blu-ray player or other streaming device that offers the Amazon service. But the TV itself doesn't offer it.
post #3737 of 3822
Thanks for the replies so far. I do have a Sony BR player and I can access Amazon via that. It just seems that the TV should provide some means of adding that either manually or via a firmware upgrade.

I have stated in prior posts, my feelings on watching movies & shows via the TV internal speakers. Why would you? An external device sounds best when run through an AVR or other soundprocessing. Even bookshelf speakers will sound better than the TV.

It sure would be nice if all of the manufacturers could get together and develop a universal "app store" for TVs and other devices, but unfortunately I don't see that happening any time soon (I.e. never). As it is, each device manufacturer signs separate agreements with the content providers, and there is a large difference in offerings and functionality between different manufacturers and even sets. With the fast-paced CE market in particular, there is very little motivation for manufacturers to go back and retrofit older electronics with current providers' offerings simply because they'd rather give you reason to "upgrade" to something that adds to their cash flow.

In other words, if you want something new, you've got to BUY something new.

I have a a 70LE745 and use a Harmony 880 remote to handle all the switching.
The wife can pick up the remote, push the button that says "watch TV" and everything happens for her.

Could anyone please verify that the the TV mounting holes are centered vertically? Have the mount TV arriving tomorrow would like to put up the mount tonight.

Thank you
post #3742 of 3822
I don't recall them being center vertically, they were a little higher then center. maybe about six inches below the top of the TV if I remember correctly
post #3743 of 3822
Hrmm ok thanks for the info.

If anyone has this TV that could verify the inches from the top mount to the top of the tv, would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

This is from the owners manual, looks pretty centered to me.

Please let me know if there's a better place to post this question. I'm working on a Sharp LC-60LE633U, but I don't see an owners thread for that model and it looked like this one has a lot of traffic and I'm hoping the wifi functionality is similar...

I can't get this TV to connect to a wifi network unless the network is unsecured. I can go through the steps of entering a wifi key for a secured network, but it always says "failed to connect", as if I had entered the wrong password (or as if there were some other problem with the network).

I had tried it on two different WiFi devices, a ZTE WiMax modem/router, and a Ruckus wireless access point, and in both cases it will connect when the network is unsecured but not when there is security and a key in place. While typing this I realized there was one more device I could try - my jailbroken iPhone can act as a WiFi hotspot, so I activated that (secured) and entered the key on the Sharp TV, and ... it connected successfully. So I really don't know what's going on.

I've tried various changes, like switching the security/encryption protocols. I haven't looked into upgrading the firmware on the TV.

Thanks for any advice you can provide (even if it's "this is the wrong place to post this ... put it in X forum/thread instead")


EDIT

Weird development one day later: Because I could connect the TV to my iPhone's WiFi, on a lark I tried changing the Wireless-N to WPA2-PSK security and used the exact same password I use on my iPhone's WiFi hotspot ... and it worked.

So now it seems like the Sharp TV is picky about what kind of password it uses??? The passwords that have not worked have been "3407774649" and "crospn156", and the password that has worked is "Beam5Kuge" (changed slightly out of completely irrational paranoia about publishing any password on the internet). So all-numerical, all-lower-case-and-numerical, and a mix of upper&lower plus one digit being the only successful one.

Unfortunately right now I don't have access to the Ruckus WiFi, so I can't change the first two passwords, but I've messed with a few different combinations on the ZTE router to convince myself that it is in fact the format of the password that makes the difference in the Sharp TV's ability to connect over WiFi.

Does that sound even remotely reasonable/plausible/etc? Is it likely that a firmware upgrade would fix it? Very weird.


Separate question (that I can research elsewhere): For streaming NetFlix over WiFi, will it matter whether I use Wireless-N or Wireless-G (with a clear 25' line of sight between TV and router)? Or is Wireless-G plenty fast enough to handle Netflix?

When I got my Sharp it would not connect to my old Belkin Pre-N router with any security either. I used it for awhile with the security turned off. I did not try changing my password. Then I got a WNDR4500 router with the pushbutton WPS security and everything synched up just fine on it's own.

Has anyone had any problems with white patches or fuzziness on this tv? Can only be seen usually when dark or black background? Otherwise it's fine?

Thanks,
post #3750 of 3822
Clouding can be an issue with this TV. I suggest you search the thread for the messages that discuss clouding here. Several have pictures in them that you can compare your set to to decide if you have a defective set.
