I hope that it is ok to post a question here rather than creating a new thread.
I just bought ST60, 50 inch and I am impressed. Since I haven't had TV in the last 5 years, I am actually amazed at the picture. I don't have cable tv and only plan to stream and watch my own video files.
I found an open box item that had 175 hours and everything seems to work perfectly, however I noticed one issue. When I connected Roku 3 to HDMI 2 (this is the one with audio return) sound would break when watching netflix or anything else. The sound would go out for a second or two every minute or so. I thought t was a connection issue even though I have a very high speed internet. Next, I connected Roku to HDMI 1 and viola, the problem has gone away.
Is this "problem" normal for HDMI 2 port and if so, what is this port used for? I'm planning on getting a sound system and am now concerned that I will encounter issues. I can still return this item to best buy, but there aren't any in the stores.
