Took delivery of LG 50PA6500 last Thursday and had as many as 4 people getting in the way and helping at one time. 36" Panasonic CRT finally gone to recycle people. Never had a problem in close to 13 years but time to move up. Bedroom Sharp LED also looks good but I had decided on an LG plasma for the family room.
I will be contacting provider tomorrow to get DVR set top box and channel packages but have been playing around for a few days plugged directly into cable outlet. The remote is less than impressive. Needs to be pointed directly at set, I mean directly
. Button "feel" leaves much to be desired also. Set top box will likely be a Pace 777D (yeuch) so it's remote will push the LG remote out the door.
I have tried two different setups as outlined in previous posts here but still need to tweak them when proper HDTV is up and running.
Ah, the good ol' days. Plug the CRT in, turn it on, adjust the horizontal hold, vertical hold, brightness, contrast and maybe turn the rotor on the roof top antenna and you're good to go. Uh, no. Later.
