Hi all, been lurking in this thread for 2 months (and avs off and on over the years.) Info here has been very helpful, so thanks in advance.
I got my unit with SN 49 a little less than a month ago. I really want to like this unit, but its getting closer to going back to Costco. Bang for the buck, feature set and style can't be beat, but I'm losing patience with the quirks. I'm not even sure what I'd get instead, debated for a month between this set and the Samsung UN55ES6150F.
For the picture, I've got the settings pretty well dialed in based on what is on page 54 here, but I also have a lightleak on the left side and flashlighting in each of the left and right lower corners (left being the worst offender at about 2 feet x 1 foot). It's most noticeable on boot, but some of it is there with some dark scene transitions. Some of you have it here, and some don't -- and the link to the C-net article was helpful in explaining it. Was still deciding if I could live with it but.....
The audio though is where most of my distraction lies. I got the 1.1.5 update the day I got it, but I'm still seeing sync issues and I just can't seem to get it right. I'm going to try this weekend to isolate if the problem is with my Onkyo ht-rc430 receiver, or with the unit itself -- but would love some advice. Here is how I have it setup and what I'm seeing:
- Onkyo reciever to Vizio via HDMI 1 port.
- Xbox 360, Sylvania BR player (i know, due for replacement), and ATT Uverse DVR into Onkyo thru HDMI
- BR player - 120 ms delay enabled on receiver (sometimes OK, sometimes not, DVD seems better with 110 ms)
- Xbox 360 - 110 ms delay enabled on receiver (did not need this the first 2 weeks, all of a sudden did)
- ATT uverse -- passthru set on receiver no delay set on port, receiver not used often
The ATT Uverse is what bothers me the most. It seems like SD programing from the DVR (or live) has a delay in audio whereas HD is less likely to. Yesterday it was the worst I've seen... turning the DVR off and on helped bring it back some but misssync was still present. I plan to run the DVR thru HDMI direct to TV over weekend and see if that helps (and loop back to receiver via Toslink)... but I don't recall issues with ATT mentioned in this thread. Anyone else see this?
Just can't decide what is at fault here, tv, receiver, hdmi, or ATT.
For reference, this is a whole new setup for me. I'm coming from a 14 year old Technics 5.1 receiver and 10 year old Sony 36" HD CRT (heavy bastard)... so I've not done anything new in a while, not used to these tweaking adjustments. Back then it was plug and play.
Any comments will be helpful... Thanks again!
