2011 Mitsubishi 3D DLP Owners Thread (740/840 series) - Page 15

post #421 of 3948
Do you think this is big enough to hold the 92".. its 23" H x 66" W x 20.38" , there will an over hang of 7.95" on each side of the stand.. does that really matter since the base is only about 43" wide? My current tv over hangs the stand 6.5" on each side.

Thanks

Becasue none of the new features are required, HDMI LLC requires the spec sheet to specifically list the features that are supported, not just state the HDMI version number.

What the receiver states is:

"HDMI V1.4a repeater , 7in (1 front) / 1out -
Support for 3D Video and Audio Return Channel"


It lists 3D video and audio as being supported. I am assuming it supports the 3D.

Aesthetically no it won't look good, I'd rather have a stand too wide and that seems too high for the 92". The base on the 92" is slightly deeper than that stand. Will it hold 195 lbs?
post #425 of 3948
The Pinnacle stand is great, I use with my 92" Mitsu. The depth and wideth are perfect. My only complaint is that it should be 15" high instead of 17". The 92" is so freakin' big that it does sit up a bit high. Not a huge deal but I think 14" or 15" would have been perfect.

It looks great. Nice, black, and very clean and modern looking. $400 too.

It all comes down to how much you are willing to spend $$$. If throwing another $400 on a stand is not a big deal, then go for it. If $400 sets you back, then live with the smaller stand you currently have.

I'm the same way, I want everything to be and look "perfect" but in life, money gets in the way of our wants.

8" of overhang on each side is not that bad. The main thing is that the current stand can hold the weight of the unit? I have about 4" of overhang on each side with my stand but I am not going to spend $400 on a new stand. Unless I win the lottery. With the economy the way it is, I am leaving good at good enough.

A small TV on a big stand looks weird as it makes the TV look "too small". A big TV on a smaller stand makes the TV look even bigger. Ideally the same sized stand as the TV's width is the "goal" but again, is $400 chump change to you? If so, then go for it. If not, then save your money and ENJOY YOUR TV! Trust me, you are not going to be staring at the stand, it's the DLP you need to be staring at!

@rustolemite What stand is that?
post #428 of 3948
Thanks for the info really like the look of that one. Seeing that is 82 wide safe to guess that the inside shelves are at least 37" wide each? Like the height of that one, its what started me searching for a new stand my current 82" Mits sits on a stand that's 28" H and was worried that its just way to high for the 92" that I would be looking at the bottom of the screen from my recliner instead of the middle.

Thanks

Can afford about $500 at the most, but my biggest problem is the shelf space underneath I need alot, with a HTPC, Directv, Xbox, Panamax, 400 Disc BluRay that is huge. So its not just the Height or the Width for my needs.

One other thing with these stands is AIRFLOW. Some are completely closed off in the back and even front, this makes your A/V gear get really hot and possibly fail.

It looks nice and neat to have everything hidden but leaving a receiver or amplifier cooking in a cabinet with no airflow is a recipe for failure.

I like to have airflow and even installed a small fan in the back to keep cool air always coming in and hot air going out.

Gruson would be the person to ask

Has anyone found where the 3D movies are located within the Vudu apps? I searched a bit this weekend and couldn't find them...

That's where a stand wider than the set would suit your needs. I would agree that a small TV on a very huge stand may look awkward but looks even more awkward vice versa. 8" wider on both sides of a stand with a 92" sitting on it won't look awkward especially if it's filled with components.

Visually the stand should always be as wide or wider than the set.

The Boxee Box Vudu app is the only one I've seen with 3D in the 3D Collection. I have Vudu on my HDTV, several Blu-ray players and PS3 and they all have nothing listed in the 3D Collection or within searches for 3D.

I can maybe understand it on my Sony Blu-ray players and PS3 as Sony provides 3D via its own Qriocity service. But on my Panasonic I don't know why 3D isn't there on Vudu. The weirdest part is that 3D is not in the Vudu app on my Mitsubishi 3D HDTV.

I like the Pinnacle stands but there is no place for center channel, so I keep searching

Not true at all--Blu-Ray only allows for 1080p24 or 1080i60 source on the disk. Most players do 1080p24, 1080p60 and 1080i60 out.

Although I can not help with your exact question I will state that Directv has 4 -- 3D channels playing content 24 hours a day ! Three channels are free and one is pay.

Not true at all? As in nothing stated was true?

How is that untrue?

Now, that is an untrue statement, as the Blu-ray spec also allows for 1080i50 on the disc.

Finally got my 73740, its sweet. Are the 'ideal' calibration settings on one of the pages of this thread? Thanks!

Touché! I stand corrected.

also according the to the screen it should auto update the firmware if its left OFF while plugged into the internet, after 30min. Left if like this for 3hours, but still showing version 13.0

According to Mitsu site 13.03 is out. Does this auto update not work or am I missing something? Thanks

Did you set up your Internet on the TV?
My 92" downloaded the 13.03 without any problems.

This is interesting... I left if off for about 6 hours while I slept. Its now on version 13.01 (as opposed to 13.0 which it was at and 13.03 which is the newest). Perhaps this is a very slow process lol. Anyhow to answer you question, yes.


When I go to Network I get the following:
DHCP
IP: 192.168.0.17
Gateway: 192.168.0.1
etc etc

Also I was logged into the VUDU and Facebook apps on the 'Internet' area
post #448 of 3948
I just picked up my 92840 on Sunday, it came with version 13.03.
post #449 of 3948
Thanks for that. I thought I saw 13.03 on my 92840 but doubted it when I read about the firmware update here. I believe I saw 13.03 on it back in the middle of August when I got mine. Also already on the website.
post #450 of 3948
Just picked up my 73640 yesterday and have a question. (not sure why there is a separate 640 thread but most activity is here)

My previous set was the 65837 which was ISF calibrated and we loved it for two years. Incredible picture, never a problem. But after setting it up for 3d, I wanted more screen real estate, as the wife and I would scoot our chairs up while watching a 3d movie to get more impact. And I also wanted to get rid of the d-link haze.

Since I had a WD box, Roku, and new Panny 310 for 3d, I had umpteen connections to the internet and didn't need any more. And the (advertised) specs on the 640 video-wise were the same as the 740, so I tried to save some bucks.

The new 640 out of the box had an excellent picture, and with a little tweaking got rid of essentially all bowing at edges. But there was one fly in the ointment that reared it's multifaceted head.

Rainbows. Rainbows. And more rainbows.

Anytime there is a white object, letters, etc. on the screen, and I move my eyes I see the rainbows. Constantly.

At first I thought maybe it was just the show I was watching since on the old 837 I never, ever saw a rainbow, even trying every once in a while, bouncing my eyeballs around while looking at white credits on black background. Actually I've never seen rainbows on any tv at stores, etc. But unfortunately it wasn't the show, everything so far I have watched has rainbows, non-stop.

Is there something they've done to the new 40's to make the rainbow effect more prevalent? Or some hardware that the 640 is lacking that the higher end models might have that isn't advertised? Or maybe it's broken somehow? Otherwise I just can't believe my eyes became sensitive to rainbows in one day.

I'm praying there is a setting, or something, that I can adjust, though I know that's really pushing the miracle cure wishfulness. But maybe, just maybe........

Any thoughts, or better yet hopes, are appreciated! This has really put a damper on my new electronics wafting joy.
