Just got the 52" out of the box and before even powering up, I have 2 quick questions, keeping in mind that I will use this only as a monitor to watch DVDs from my old 480p Sony DVD player. I will hook up the component video from the DVD player to the 52" monitor and the audio will go via optical to my Rotel preamp and 5.1 surround sytem. Eventually, with the new 981 Oppo I will do HDMI from DVD to TV but will still route audio thru' the Rotel preamp. So:
1. How do I disable the Sharp's speakers? Will never use these.
2. If the DVD picture feed goes directly to the Sharp (via component or HDMI) and the DVD audio feed goes thru' the Rotel preamp, will there be a picture/audio lag problem? How do I fix this?
1. you can disable the sharps speakers --
in the menu navigate right to options
in options nav down to output select
on audio output settings, choose "variable", this disables the speakers
2. i have video from cable box and dvd going to sharp via hdmi and audio for both direct to a bose -- no sound lag at all
