Still in burn-in period, but Discovery HD is just stunning, sometimes I just leave it on there all day to burn-in and just drool at the picture.
I'm pretty sure there are some other new owners coming on board, so hopefully we can get some more version for Home Gallery and build dates.
Wohoo, I was getting lonley.
Mines mounted on a Salamander triple cabinet using their flat panel mounting kit. A very sturdy arrangement that keeps the cabling nice and tidy.
The cable company is coming Friday to install the CableCard so I can get access to Discovery HD, etc.
For the time being I leave it on the PBS HD feed quite a bit for break in purposes. But I mix it up. Spent last evening on the CBS HD feed to see what that was like. Watched a lot of the HD sports feeds on Sunday. Absolutely no hints of any IR showing up even with the Sunday dose of prolonged graphics, tickers, etc.
DVD's are super through the HDMI cable. I'm feeding it a 1080i signal but haven't experimented with the resolution settings on the DVD player too much. 1080i looked the best of the various resolutions I could feed it on a quick test.
I'm still in awe of the HD picture quality. The SD is good, but HD spoils a person.
I haven't had a chance to play with the Home Media yet. I have to run a cable from my router to the panel, which will take some work. Fortunately the two rooms are side by side.
So far, nothing but solid performance from the 1140. No, glitches, hitches or picture problems like macro blocking, pixelation, freezing, etc. It seems to handle fast motion very well and while there's some degree of jaggies on some material, there's nothing that's been really objectionable.
I haven't deeply explored the settings for NR and such to see what effect those would have.
