Olevia 337H Official Thread - Page 14

Yup, doesn't everyone.

There is supposed to be a cable that plugs into the back of your Olevia TV and to your receiver, and you can then control all of the TV's functions straight from the receivers remote. I'm researching more information about it this week

What are the VESA measurements for a wallmount for this tv

My Onkyo receiver has a learning remote, you can always teach a learning remote the commands the long way. Or get a Harmony. I haven't reprogrammed my Harmony yet as my hardware is still in flux and I don't want to have to mess with it again in a few weeks. When my new receiver comes in I'll sit and reprogram my various remotes.

I just got this set and hooked it up to my Xbox 360 via the VGA port, it looks fantastic! Only problem last night I picked up Guitar Hero 2 and for some reason the game does not fill the screen I am losing about 1/4 all the way around. I have it set to display at 1360x768 1:1 mode, the weird thing is it's not all games. I tried fooling around with the settings and other display modes, but could never get it to fill the screen with GH2. Is there something wrong with my set or is it Guitar Hero 2 ?
post #396 of 507
Sounds like it's GH2.
post #397 of 507
There is a setting for widescreen and lcd I think in the GH2 menu.

There is something in the menus but that is only for calibrating the lag time on LCD.
I am starting to think it maybe my set I see no one else that has the problem.

I dont have this problem when playing GHII on my 360 with this set through VGA. Im not sure through VGA if you still have select widescreen on the 360? take a look.

The option is not available to me, it's faded I can't click on it. What setting do you have your tv set to ? Is it 1360x768

Just noticed I have a little distortion in the right speaker of my 332H. Only happens with certain sounds, usually someone speaking in a specific, rare tone. Just makes a little honking type sound. I'll probably just ignore it and get a cheap home theater system.

Do you have IDEA turned on?
post #403 of 507
What is IDEA? I searched the manual and found nothing for the 337h.

I'm sorry that was a misprint. It should have read iDiva

It's under your audio menu.
post #405 of 507
No iDiva option on my TV, a 332H.

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner but, I do have the same thing happen to my set when playing GHII after taking a closer look. It seeems that is the games max resoulution and therefore, that is why it doesnt fit the screen all the way. My set is set to 1360x768 aswell. I beleive this also happens with COD3 too. sorry for the incorect post above. thanks

I think it's a combination of the game and the tv. I tried every setting I could to fix it, but nothing worked. I also see this problem with Burnout Revenge, other games like Dead Rising & Test Drive fill the screen. It's under scanning the picture for some reason. Thanks for your feedback.

Should I let my 332H do the "progressive scanning" for DVDs, or use my $60 DVD player? Which devices typically have the better processing at this price level (dirt cheap )? Do the Olevia TVs have a special mode for 3:2 pulldown compensation, or is it done automatically?

Uhm, try both, and see which looks better to you. But it might benefit you to buy an upscaling DVD player to output 720p. Oppo Digital makes some good well priced ones ($150-$230).

Right, I guess my real question was about the 3:2 pulldown compensation in modern fixed-pixel displays. Do they do it automatically, or is there a special mode? I noticed a "progressive DVD" mode in my menu, but I'm not sure if that actually changes the processing or just enhances the image a certain way.

No DVD upgrade for me; I'll be building a HTPC and using that if anything!

Nope, that is just for settings, it changes brightness, sharpness, etc. to predetermined values. You definately want to adjust those independently with a test dvd if possible (if not just do it by eye while watching fav. movie). The TV will automatically display whatever resolution the source sends. If other than 720p, it will scale the resolution to native. To check input resoluton push the display button, twice i believe, and it will show you what resolution the source is playing. Hope this helps.

Anyone have trouble using HDMI audio with this display? I just moved to a new setup and ran a long hdmi cable to the LCD instead of component cables. I was hoping to get audio out of the TV for my satellite receiver for the daytime.

I get no audio via HDMI. I thought it was an issue with my receiver or the HDMI splitter I use, but I swapped cables and did a straight cable run from my Toshiba HD-A2 - no sound, and I get no sound from my VIP622 HD-DVR.

I tested the speakers by hooking up a PSone to the composite input, they work and I get sound fine. But nothing via HDMI.

I get audio no probs through HDMI from LG-418 dvd player.

I've had the 337H for a few months now, and only recently I've been using HDMI on a philips DVD player I've baught, and the screen is about and inch lower than where it should be on all of the screen settings (full screen, 1:1, aspect) and when I try to use the Screen Adjustment in the OSD the options dont move at all. The H position is 100% and V position is 0 and I cannot adjust it at all.
post #415 of 507
I was happy with this tv for about a week. Now all inputs have a scrolling picture including the Olevia logo when I first turn it on. The composite worked the longest but now it's signal is jumping vertically also. I have contacted support and they told me I had to ship the TV to California and that I had to pay the shipping. I asked about what happens if the same issue arrives and they told me that I should have bought an extended warranty to protect myself. This stinks, $550 is a great price but not for 1 week of viewing.

also with directv connected to the tv, the lowest volume setting can still be too loud when the ball and chain is trying to sleep beside you.

You can adjust the position in the service menu. Press Menu and then Source, Volume Down, Channel Down simultaneously on your tv a new menu should popup on your screen called factory.

Most cable or sat boxes have their own volume control setting, you just have to reset the volume lock setting on the remote, to reduce how much it's putting out to your TV. Or you could just do what I did, and buy yourself a cheap HTIB and use it's seperate volume controls.
I've had no issue with this set at all, other than the screen adjustment via HDMI (which I will try later tonight).

I tried lastnight to get to that Service Menu, but I don't know if I'm doing something wrong. First I tried pushing menu, then source, then simultaneously pressing the volume and channel down. Then I tried holding down all 4, I tried pressing the menu and source button at the same time, then the channle and volume buttons at the same time. No matter the combination, none of them seem to be pulling up a menu.

The firmware version I got is 332-B11 V0133_L. The minimum volume is very quiet (or completely silent at the lowest position) so maybe that is fixed now. Input switching seems fast enough for me -- running through the inputs takes a split second, then it takes about a half second for the new input to come up. Not sure if that's what people were seeing with the "slow input switching" or not.

When you say, "This TV" do you mean the 332 not the 337 referenced in the thread title? As far as I know the current firmware for the 337 is 337-B11 V0130_L and it does not fix the minimum volume problem. Did you use the firmware 332_B11 V0133_L on a 337 or a 332?

The correct combination is You first press Menu, and then you press Source + Volume Down + Channel Down simultaneously.
