Hi guys- just had to say hi. I feel so 'normal' here.
I'm a proud owner of the 62hm95 ; someone was asking about the experience (can't find the post, or else I'd directly quote reply).
I'm very happy with it. I have no cable or dish, just Over The Air HD($130 antenna). I'm no TV guru ; but I have to say I love it.
It is connected to my HT media center computer. Gigs of videos, pictures and music and of course record any decent tv shows. I don't miss cable. In fact, I think I'd watch more of the OTA HD than regular cable. It's so pretty.
pc rig specs :
3.0ghz p4 (socket478) ,512mb ram 433mhz (not paired
), ATI HDTV pci card, ATI 550 theater for SD & FM tuner, 500gb drive space (2x250gb striped), envy 24 sound card.
note : using the NVIDIA pure video decoding software made a VERY noticeable difference. (dvd's especially). Like software upscaling if you will. The Nvidia software also support digital passthrough. It's pretty awesome to experience. My yamaha htr-5280 recieve does all the audio decoding... true 5.1 seperation.
Audiophiles may not think too much of it; but it's great to see all the technology going to very good use.
that's enough out of me.
It's been fun reading the last 10 pages of this thread (I figured I should start in october?).
