My LC-LE847U was delivered last Friday. Originally I wanted to pick it up myself but changed it to delivery after reading this thread and decided that it would be smarter to put the responsibility on the delivery people
. I wanted to see the TV on the truck before they took it out, but these guys were too fast. When I came out of the house the TV was already on the guy's shoulder. I asked if it stood up or if it was flt, he said it was up. The box was perfect.
Anyway, they had to bring it in through the bulkhead door to the basement. Everything went perfectly fine until the guy holding the back (most of the TV was already inside) dropped his side of the box from about 1 ft. above the floor. The carrying handle, cut into the box, simply gave way. They opened the box and everything looked good..no damage at all. The foreman offered to plug it in and test it but I wasn't ready to do that at the time. He was fine with it and assured me that I have 30 days to call if there is any issue and they'll come and replace it.
I did plug the TV later that night and it looked perfect, couldn't see anything that might have happened because of this drop.
Anyways, I didn't have much time at all since Friday to play with it. I didn't even open the manual yet
. I plugged it in to my DirecTV HD DVR with a USB and pretty much enjoyed the hour or so of TV that I watched.
Then last evening I spend hours on plugging my new receiver. I run the DVR through the receiver (Pioneer VSX-1022). Granted, I didn't even see the manual for the receiver yet.
In any event, the reason I am posting here before even reading the manual or changing anything
in the setup of either device, is that if you saw few pages back, I had some concerns from reading the entire thread about clouding and other issues.
I didn't notice any clouding until yesterday, when my DVR was connected directly to HDMI1. Of course, I didn't even watch a BR movie yet.
The thing that changed yesterday was that for some reason, when I change channels in my DVR now (goes through the not-yet-set-up receiver), it sometimes takes forever for the new channel to come up and occasionally the new channel doesn't come up at all
...so when that happens, the screen darkens and that's when I saw for the first time the infamous blue clouding
I also noticed some a/v sync issues, with and without the receiver. All the reports that I read referred to Verizon's Fios box, I did not see anything about DirecTV receivers.
Hopefully I will have some time during the weekend to extensively play with settings.
Thanks for listening.
