Thanks... So when I get the new receiver, should I run an HDMI From the arc HDMI out on The receiver to the arc HDMI on the TV , or doesn't it matter

I'm going to be picking up a Sony dn840 receiver since my pioneer 819 is now 5 years old with no 3d pass thru, leaving me with just TV speakers for 3d movies...

Now I notice on the back of the TV there is an HDMI labeled arc. Is that the HDMI port I am supposed to connect my receiver too? Right now my receiver is connected to HDMI 2 on the TV... It says 'best'...

My old Sony A/V receiver won’t pass thru 3D, but rather than spend the money for now I’m connecting my 3D Blu-ray HDMI direct to the M701d HDMI 2 and connecting the Blu-ray coax digital audio out to the DVD digital audio in on the Sony. My TV speakers are off.

Yes. Use the dedicated arc hdmi port.

That is correct. Arc to Arc

Hi all.

Issue: all of a sudden a green vertical line started appearing on the right side of the image on my 65". Line extends top to bottom and is so thin it looks like it was drawn on with a green pen. Sometimes it is accompanied by a red vertical line half an inch from it. I unplug (and re-plug) the TV, turn it back on, and the line isn't there; all better. Until the next time I turn the TV on, when my odds are 50/50 it'll be okay without having to unplug it again.

I've isolated the problem to the TV (not the audio receiver, not the HDMI cable). And the input selected doesn't matter.

Question: other than yelling threats at my TV, is there anything I can do that doesn't involve me digging into the TV's innards? I didn't see a button or setting to "refresh" the image, etc. (And if I do have to open the inside chassis up, how difficult would the problem be for me to fix? Or just replace something? etc)

Thanks in advance. smile.gif

Anyone notice fairly significant crosstalk during 3D playback on the 60"? We just watched Monsters U and it was pretty evident.

I don't know of an option to refresh the image, but when I select "Game" mode, the screen goes black for a second almost like it's refreshing. Next time the line pops up try switching to "Game" mode and see if that does anything.

Sorry I cant help more than that.

I'd suggest some calibration disc like Disney's WOW, which has a pixel fixer option that may remedy this. Return it if you are still in your return window or call Vizio, as this is clearly manufacturer's defect and I'm pretty sure you are still covered by Vizio's warranty. Do not open the tv, unless you know what you are doing.

I have the 70", so things could be different. That said I was concerned that 3d wouldn't look nearly as good as on my Samsung plasma. I actually see less crosstalk... the floating lanterns in Tangled were much worse on the plasma (active). I have mixed feelings about 3d in general though. Mostly 3d is great on the Visio, with fantastic detail, but in some movies the 3d lacks depth vs the plasma. No issues with crosstalk though, at least for me. I use game mode with all advanced features off.

Just bought the M601d last night and it had a horrible amount of cross talk, so much so that it was barely watchable. Talking it back today for an exchange, not sure what I'll do off the second set has a similar issue. It seems like the polarized filter wasn't put on correctly because if I viewed it from above the bottom was fixed, but then the top had horrible cross talk and the bottom right always had some amount that I was never able to avoid seeing. My previous set was a Vizio 42 inch TV and I never had such issues...
post #5111 of 8762
@z0p and meatwad thanks for the input. I also have it in game mode with all advanced features off. I tried other picture modes, I tried 24p playback off and on. I think I've tried everything short of running the bd player directly into the TV (next step after work today).

I did not have this problem on my 55". Pretty frustrating.

I had a similar thing happen with my Vizio 65" M3D650SV after about a year of use.  The problem started just before it went out of warranty, but I didn't notice because it would go away after a couple of minutes.  Now it lingers for about an hour before it goes away.  I had purchased the Square Trade warranty when I bought the set, so after they took a look at the problem. they determined that either the parts were not available or the cost of fixing the T.V. was too high;  so they sent me an $1,800 Amazon gift card to replace the set.  Interestingly enough, I get to keep the old set - they don't want it.  The old set will now be going into my son's room and he can use it until it gives it up.  I will be replacing the old unit in a few weeks with an M701D in the family room.  Because the bezel is so much thinner, the 70" will take up about the same amount of wall real estate as the older 65" did.  I know, I digress.  The moral of the story:  The warranty paid for itself several times over.  I believe that your set is still under warranty so make sure to call Vizio so that you can document the issue and get it either fixed or replaced.  If you bought the set within the last 60 days, and you are a Costco member;  you can buy the Square Trade warranty for $99 even if you bought the set from a different reseller.  Food for thought.  The higher end Vizio's have great pictures and price/performance, but I am not sure about their long term reliability.  With some brands you might be able to skip the extra warranty, but I would never do that with a Vizio - and I am a Vizio fan - I have four of them.  Hope your issue gets resolved!

Ive been hearing reviews where others had this exact same green line either right out of the box or after a few days/weeks of use.  Seems to be pretty random and not affect all sets.  Return it for another!  I will be purchasing the M601D very soon and this green line issue doesn't bother me because if its there, ill just return it.

Not sure where the tv is in relation to your seating but you need to be facing the tv head on at eye level with passive 3d. If you are seated above or below the center line of the screen you will see crosstalk or image doubling. You'd need to tilt the set slightly up or down to correct this. Not sure if this applies but something to keep in mind.

Yeah, the one I had was not aligned right or something, I had to stand above the TV looking down for the bottom right to not have crosstalk...

Just picked up a new set and everything is working great so far, no cross talk this time!

That's 100% true. How is your tv mounted? On a stand or on a wall?
post #5117 of 8762
My TV is on a stand. I'm at work right now, but I'd have to guess we sit about six - eight inches below the center of the screen.

I'm going to do some perspective tests when I get home, but I honestly think the amount of crosstalk I'm getting is excessive when considering our viewing angle.

All my pics removed, sorry for the intrusion. I'll limit my posts to Tech q's so as not to interfere with your urgent issues/topics. Best regards
post #5119 of 8762
I don't have a problem with posting pics, but yours were literally just the same two of your TV over and over asking the same question about R2D2. I didn't mean to come off like a jerk or anything.

Thanks, it's actually 10' wide and 8' tall...seating is about 14' away. Works very well and 7.1 will break glass if I go over 75 lol

Thanks for the reply. No problem, text/email/posts can sometimes come across less than friendly, because if a person can take something said in a negative manner that is usually how it comes across.

I was sharing my excitement for my new 70" and the built-ins while using the same pics also in the 80" forum as I was considering one ...with the same commentary....my bad.

This is a tech forum and I'll restrict my chit-chat over on my FB site to not clutter up the urgent stuff needing attention here. Best regards and happy viewing to all.

Just got my 4th led replacement from vizio! Please tell me this is normal because this set finally looks good! I am so shocked with the shoddy manufacturing of these sets...you be the judge.

It's normal. I went through 3 LG's and a Samsung before settling on my Vizio. I think the QA departments at a lot of these manufacturers leave a lot to be desired. Either they don't really test them aside from "does it turn on" or they have really low quality standards. Either way, it definitely shouldn't be this hard to purchase a good TV in this day and age.

Anyone notice any lag while streaming mp4 through the DLNA server?
post #5125 of 8762
This is what I meant to post earlier. I called Vizio about this and they said their is some give in the screen and it is normal too keep it from breaking and if this was damaged I feel their might be a crack or something. Is this normal...I can see these lights basically around the whole left side and the bottom, obviously cant get a view of the top. Anyone else have this with an LED? Can only been seen at the angles I took the pictures...
post #5126 of 8762
Thanks for all the replies. Some good stuff to try there.
(And I bought the Vizio on eBay, probably not from an authorized seller....)

I had the same problem with our LG 55lw5300 when we bought it last year. Had in on a stand and we sat about six inches below the center. Crosstalk was crazy. Did some research and found out that we were just too low. So I got a tilting wall mount and that took care of the problem 100%. Crosstalk was totally gone. So I did the same for our 70" and there is no crosstalk at all.

Play a 3D movie and either boost yourself with some additional pillows or stand behind your seats (if possible) and you should notice the difference.
post #5128 of 8762
@cash70 I tried finding the sweet spot last night with no luck. I know different sizes make comparison difficult, but our 55" M was far more forgiving on crosstalk; there virtually wasn't any!

A strange side note: I played Star Wars Pinball in 3D from the PS3 and could not discern any crosstalk. Is it possible the TV is recognizing video content and kicking some processing element into overdrive and thereby creating horrid crosstalk?
post #5129 of 8762
New to the forum and want to thank everyone who has posted - been extremely helpful in my research. My Lg 52LG70 has started the dreaded clicking on/off and with several tries I have not been able to find a fix. So, after doing some research I had come across the Panasonic VIERA TC-P60ST60 and the Vizio M series. Stopped by Costco to take a look at the Vizio today and, overall, really liked the tv (though the picture wasn't the best, but I blame that to lack of calibration and position). As much good as I have heard on the Panny, I have heard quite a bit on the Vizio M as well, and will most likely be stopping by Costco tomorrow to pick one up (and the square trade warranty). Anyone else look at the Panny compared to the Vizio M?

My only dilemma is which size to buy - 55" vs 60". They both had the same screen (no where near as glossy as the 65"). Trying to compare them back and forth, just wanting to make sure that I am not missing a difference between the two (other than the $300 price difference and size difference). Looking forward to getting this setup and trying out the 3d, though this is temporarily putting off my subwoofer replacement.

Thanks for any thoughts!

Anyone know what mp4 format I should use to help with lag free streaming via DLNA? I've been capping a lot of videos in Battlefield 4 using Nvidia Shadowplay, but the TV stutters every few seconds when streaming wirelessly. It's captured at 60 FPS, 1080p, about 43k bitrate.
