I would also like to get in on this (albeit late), but it somewhat depends on the price. Can I get a PM from someone with the PB price of the 61"?

I also understand that I will need to wait while Jason handles everybody else's existing PB before mine...
Thaks!

The terms of the powerbuy are that you cannot share the price either through a post or PM.

If you want in on the powerbuy, you are not committed until after you understand the total price (PRO, shipping, and tax if needed) and agree to it.

You need to PM jwv651 with your contact information.

Name
email address
Address to ship the set to
phone number

Then joe (jwv651) forwards it on to Jason who will call you.

Edited thanks to jvogt!

Thanks so much for this info Bob.

Thanks Bob,
Having never participated in a PB, I didn't know the rules. Since I am on the verge of deciding on a TV, I was just hoping to get a line on the price sooner rather than later. If it was too high, then I would make a decision to buy a different model...

Jason will also want your email address

Anyone have or know where to find the Serial Protocol documentation for communicating with the HD-xxR1U displays through the RS232C port?

Is there any news on if the 61" sets have been received and shipped by AVS?

I missed my first call for 61." While I am waiting for the call, it would be nice to get a PM/e-mail from Jason as to the price+shipping. I will get to check-out a displayed 61R1U tomorrow at a retailer in Culver City, CA. Hope, their feed & set-up will be better than at Fry's in Canoga-Park that has a 61FH96 on display. Fry's display could scare almost all potential buyers.
Thanks,

Whew, I had a little scare there, when AVS called and said my credit card was declined.
I was ready to cry. I guess the story was the credit card company thought the dollar amount was outside the scope of my usual spending habits and put some kind of security flag on my account. It was realtively easy to straighten out, but needless to say, I was worried at first.
The bottomline of this story is that my credit card has in fact been charged.
Meaning the purchase is complete, and the set is on it's way.
Although I've still not gotten an email with a firm delivery date...
I expect to have that email before the day is over, and I expect my delivery date will be the 23rd.

Everyone who is waiting on Jason to contact them - please try to be patient. If you sent him your information he will call you back.

He probably has 4 pages of names and addresses of people that are interested and he has to organize the shipment for those who have already ordered.

It is worth the wait.

While we cannot give you any information on the price, I think we can say you will be very pleased once you receive the price from Jason. It is worth waiting for.

I used my Platinum Visa card to purchace the JVC Pro and was able to get an additional 6 months of warranty coverage through Visa (I believe American Express and MasterCard also offer this benefit.) Visa will give up to one additional year of warranty coverage (extending a manufacture's warranty up to a maximum of 2 years) when using a Visa card with this benefit. Since the JVC Pro has an 18 month warranty, Visa covers an additional 6 months to give the maximum of 2 years of warranty coverage.

Does anybody know at which point the third party warranty will start the additional coverage? and

Can you add additional warranty coverage anytime prior to the warranty expiring or does the third party warranty have to be purchased within a certain period after purchase?

My credit card has also been charged, but I have not received a e-mail confirmation about shipping. Do you know if the 23rd is a confirmed date for receiving this shipment if it in fact leaves by tomorrow (Tuesday.)

la916, i dont know when the extended warranty would kick in, but i'd assume after the 18 months... so your visa warranty would not really make a difference for that 6 months. But I think you can go buy the extended warranty at any point before the factory warranty is up, or before a few years, something like that. I'm pretty sure you dont have to buy it when you buy the TV.

If I can purchase it anytime, then it might be beneficial to wait just before the warranty expires. If these third party warranty company go out of business before the end of the original manufacture's warranty, then they would have my money up front and I would have nothing to show for it in the end.

It's pretty easy to do a search and find the information before just taking a wild guess. 3rd party warranties must be purchased within 30 days of purchasing the TV. A bulb warranty must be purchased on the same receipt as the TV (meaning you can not get a bulb warranty except from the place you buy the TV). 3rd party extended warranties start after the "shortest" period of your manufacturer's warranty expires. This means that if parts are covered for 2 years but labor is covered for only a year by the manufacturer, the 3rd party warranty kicks in after a year. If both are covered for 2 years, the extended warranty kicks in after 2 years.

There are some things you just don't buy extended warranties for - like major kitchen appliances/washers & dryers/reliable autos. There are things I purchase extended warranties for - those tiny microdrive mp3 players (headphone jacks and microdrives go bad - much better than self-insurance) and things my kids are likely to break. I almost never buy extended warranties for big items but I'm on the fence about getting one for the JVC given the reports of problems on their 720P sets and on the Sony SXRD along with Consumer Reports recommending one.

Thanks for the information about the extended warranty. I am going to have to look into this a little further.

I talked to Jason about purchasing an extra bulb and he did not have any TS-CL110U bulb replacement kits yet, nor did he recommend buying one now. He said if I find the bulb is bad 12 months later when I actually use it to replace the original, JVC will not replace it after being sold and in the consumer's possession for that long of a period.

I got a call from Jason yesterday and placed my order. He said the 61" is in stock in NY (Rochester warehouse) and should ship this week and he even said I may get it before Christmas. It was quite interesting that Jason said he felt extended warranties were useless and they don't offer them. Usually stores love to sell those and I guess speaks volumes as to the quality of TVA.

It hasn't been posted on their site that usually contains such information yet. It usually takes them a while. They haven't posted any of the previous RPTVs because they weren't professional models.

I got a call from my CC company today with the same thing. I'm actually very glad they do that, identity theft and all.

On another note, I was at a Costco in Vegas this last weekend and they had a 70" JVC LCOS on display, the '05 model I'm sure. It looked absolutely fantastic, even with all the bright florescent lights they have in their entry. Some kind of a HD loop they were running. Hard to say where the picture settings were on any of the displays, but the LCOS looked smoother and better in a lot of ways than any of the LCDs and DLPs. It was by no means a true and valid way to judge one technology over the other(i.e., please no flames ), it was just nice to see what I've always loved about LCOS, a very smooth, artifact free(in comparison) image.

Just look at the number of posts asking about extended warranties and people that bought them when they got their TVs from CCor BB or some other store. People want to avoid self insuring on big ticket electronic items. It's not wrong for a store to fulfill customer demand for a product - extended warranty. What could be construed as taking advantage of consumer fears is the variability of prices for warranties. $190 one place and $390 for the exact same warranty another place. The story is the same for the TV itself. Some places charge MSRP while others discount heavily. There is huge profitability in extended warranties - which is why they are pushed so heavily.

If I ran a retail store, I would definitely offer the product because the demand seems huge. Why lose a sale because the customer wanted an extended warranty with the product? That doesn't speak to the "quality" of the retailer. Now if he's charging a lot for the warranty, that speaks to the greed of the retailer but they could still deliver excellent customer service and satisfaction which speaks more about the quality of the dealer versus just greediness (or as some would say "capitalism").

I'll need to spend some time and get familair with it. I'm watching Monday Night Football on it right now and it's AWESOME!

One problem I've had is I couldn't get HDMI to work on my SA8300HD cable box. It works fine with my Sony DVD. I'll have to do some research on how or if that will work.

Amex provides up to an additional 1 year (if you believe the people on the phone)

Plenty of posts on the SA8300 not working with hdmi. Just do a search of the forum on SA8300 hdmi.
