Quote:I just raised the contrast and brightness up a little bit and it looks much better! Also putting on a little motion smoother helped with the picture quality as well, got rid of a lot of cross talk and blur I was seeing in 3d.
Quote:Why not just have them deliver it for free? Then you do not need to worry. They will also un-box it and set it up for you. I know it is not instant gratification and you might need to wait few days, but they few days might be the difference between watching a TV for years to come or ended up with a $1000 paper weight.
Sure it can be done, lots of things can be done that shouldn't be. Doesn't mean it is good decision thought. Also, as others have said, not turning it on would be related to cold weather and letting the TV come down to room temperature if that was the case. Having it on it's side or not has absolutely no effect on waiting to turn the TV on.
