My Refurbished WS-73740 arrived today.
My 3D glasses won't arrive until Monday.
The unit looks brand new except there is a scratch on the screen. It is about 2 inches long. The box was in very good condition and I don't think there is any way something inside the box scratched it... but I wiped the scratch off with my t-shirt and most of the white residue came off, meaning it was "fresh". So I don't think it had anything to do with it being refurbished, I think it was probably scratched when they were putting it in the box.
Anyway, I fired up the set, and the scratch is not visible once the screen is illuminated, so I'm not going to complain about it to the manufacture or retailer. But I do want to try to buff it out a bit more, so does anyone have suggestions on what to use? You can feel the scratch, but it's not very deep.
I have only had about 5 minutes to mess with the TV before the kids took it over LOL, but the picture is very sharp and vivid right out of the box. Probably a little "too" bright. My only calibration disc is Avia on DVD, so I need to update, what's the best calibration Blu-Ray for DLP? At least Avia will get the colors right (it has the film strips in the box).
Next on my list is to get the Harmony going... I just searched the thread for "discreet" and only got one hit talking about the iOS remote app. Does anyone know if the WS-73740 profile on Harmony's site has discreet codes, and if not if there is a slightly different model that has better codes? I remember on my Samsung I had to use an alternate model # to get the discreet on/off and input codes.
Sorry, my post got long, so I bolded my questions for those skimming. LOL
