H = horizontal speakers, V = vertical speakers.
Thank you muchly for the info, BroChaos (as well as for all the other knowledge you've brought to this thread). I can't believe I didn't realize V=vertical...
Okay, after checking out that very helpful user manual link, here's a nitpicky question:
The manual for the ATI models doesn't explicitly state in the text what Xilleon chip is in it. There is a graphic, though, at the bottom of page 6, for the "Set-Top Wonder Xilleon 220."
Is that graphic accurate?
Do these brand new TVs really use the Xilleon 220? I mean, I understand these aren't the flagship Olevias, but still...
ATI doesn't even list the 220 on their Xilleon page anymore. It's buried in the discontinued products directory, superceded by the Xilleon 226, which itself is getting rather long in the tooth...
Of course, I don't really know what I'm talking about. =) Does it even matter which is used? I could see it being crucial on a 1080p set, but are all these chips pretty much interchangeable at 768p? Or is the MediaTek MDDi in the 37" and 42" sets significantly better? From what I've been googling, it seems like ATI and MediaTek are just licensing older chipsets from Silicon Image...
