Hopefull, our house will have enough room :-)
Oh, just one other thing, are a lot of you guys using this TV for regualr viewing, I was going to use it as a dedicated HT display and keep our old 58inch Sammy for normal TV.
1st off that is the 632 80" Sharp EU version .....
For my set-up ,I use a New Onkyo TX-NR1009 that I set to up-process SD & 1080I to 1080P , I set the Onkyo to 1080P output in the HDMI out setting , then set the display to "dot to dot" & the display will select the box size for the SD without stretching the SD image , this seems to work really well , the New Onkyo's have the HQV chipset & the new Marvel chipset that do compression , up processing , clean-up chores . Very Sharp images are the outcome without the over processed look . They even clean up 1080P compression as well & I get as close to a Blu-Ray image as I've ever seen with both 1080I ,1080P on a compressed DirecTV feed . The Onkyo seems to not touch a Blu-Ray feed off my Sony Br player & I can not tell any difference with a true Blu-Ray feed with the Onkyo in 1080P out-put.
Yes the Onkyo will not render a true Blu-Ray image with any DirecTV feed but it is near to one as I have ever seen .
SD is not anywhere near Up-processed to a Blu-Ray PQ not by a long shot & is not a true 1080P image PQ as well , but it does make the SD watchable with marked improvements in PQ.
I am coming from using a Onkyo TX-NR5008 that had the Reon chipset , the newer chipsets are a vast improvement in the cleaning up of satellite compression . it's such a improvement I am selling the 5008 .
