* I've got the picture dialed in to my liking: Movie Mode, Backlighting around 7 and some more. Really, this is so much a matter of preference that its sort of incumbent on each user to find their own settings. (regardless of the expensive "calibration", IMO).
* Last night's Denver game was quite stunning, except for one horrible problem: lots of jerking, interruption (sound too), etc. It was like the cable connection was being momentarily interrupted. Very bad. However, it was only on ESPN. All other stations functioned normally. Very weird.
* This morning, I dove into Voice Recognition. Its actually quite good if you use the Smart Remote as a walkie-talkie. I was able to navigate to and from Smart Hub, select Netflix, Amazon Instant Video and a few other things. Even Mute the sound. Pretty neat. Unfortunately I was only able to change the channel one time, and that was it.
