Hey everyone, long time lurker, first time poster, and I just want to say thanks in advance!
I've been shopping for TVs, and the 60EX645 is one of the top options I'm seriously considering. However, I have a few questions:
1. The simple question first - I've read in the EX640 thread that quite a few people had uniformity issues (i.e. flashlighting, clouding, etc). For those who own the set, can you speak to whether you have been experiencing such issues?
2. This question is a bit more complex - I'm considering building a HTPC which would play Blu-Ray discs. I've downloaded the manual from the Sony site and have studied it carefully, and whenever it speaks about a PC connection, it only mentions a vertical refresh rate of 60hz (it even mentions this regarding HDMI). My question is, on a computer connected to this TV, will the options for a refresh rate of 23hz or 24hz be available (assuming the computer's video card can support this)? Can an owner, who has a computer connected to this TV, try it out and let me know what they find?
In summary, I'm worried that when a video card "handshakes" with this TV, the TV tells the video card it only supports an input refresh rate of 60hz, which would cause 3:2 pulldown of 24p movies (which is not
ideal). However, I would think that a 1080/24p (hz) signal sent over HDMI from a PC would work because that would be similar to a standalone Blu-Ray player (someone correct me if I'm wrong). The manual is vague about this
And to be clear, I am not getting mixed up with the TV's screen refresh rate of 120hz. I'm strictly speaking about the refresh rate of input signals the TV can accept from a PC via HDMI.
Thanks for any insight you all can provide!
