Maybe the manager will knock off $100-$200 to keep you satisfied...
Hey, it's worth a try!
BTW, thanks to everyone for the valuable input on this TV. I just saw them at BB over the weekend and was quite impressed w/ the picture. I see they have them on sale this week for $1999, same as HP website. Might be worth picking one up and give it a test-drive with my new Toshiba HD-DVD player!!
Ok guys, I've got to get to the bottom of this PIP. I call HPShopping and went ballistic about the salesman telling me the 5060 had PIP. Threatened to get a Return Authorization right then and there or demand deep discount.
Well the rep checked the rep of the rep (get it?) who sold me the TV and said he was one of thier most experienced and best. Two people got on the phone with me while they poured over some log of specs that they have available. Their information indictaes tha the 5060 has what HP calls "Dual Picture Display", while not technically a picture in a picture, this feature allows 2 different pictures to be displayed at once. Someone's post mentioined this had happened, but as an abberation.
My 5060 to be delivered Wednesday...but let me know if anyone has determined how to use the feature, since it must not be intuative, or explained in the manual.
