It'll add Dark Detailer, DeepField Imager, PerfectTint, ShareEdge, Multi-Format Memory Card Reader and Net Command with IR learning which is supposed to give you one-button control of all your AV equipment. And best of all, to me, is the crystal black finish which really makes the TV look awesome!
The Y65 does have Net Command with IR learning. The TV comes with two IR outputs that you string along to your other devices to control them. Then, during setup, you teach your TV which IR commands to send by running through common commands and pressing the appropriate buttons on the old remote. Even if the old remote has some funky button, you can associate that button with one of the F1 - F4 buttons on the new remote.
Circuit City did have the dark detailer listed in the specs earlier, but it's since been removed. The manual doesn't say one way or another, just that the Y65 doesn't have the DeepField Imager (but seems to imply when the DF Imager is off the contrast of the full scene is adjusted).
I suspect that these sets are somehow between the 731s and 732s, but the Net Command is the only difference I'm positive of. As I said, the manual is also for the 732 models. Am I correct in assuming that the manual supplied with the 731 does not also cover the 732s?
One more thing, not all the CC models are in the "Y-series", their 52" set is a 52631.
