DOCTORA?

Swap out the TV instead of the stand? All microdisplays have sweet spots so have you measured the sweet spot before assuming and doing another swap? Sort of like the carpenter addage - "measure twice cut once".

Good Luck!

I'm with you, the stand goes, after you settle on a TV as your first choice, a stand is not the deal breaker. If it's an heirloom, put it in another room and enjoy its beauty all by itself!

How do you find the sweet spot based on measurements of the tv and tv stand alone? It seems that would be difficult without sitting in front of the tv with the right stand and seeing it. Is there a rule of thumb for the "sweet spot"?

Hopefully the sweet spot is when your eyes are in the same plane as the center of the screen both up and down and side to side.

From your normal seating position measure the distance from your eyes to the floor. The height of the stand plus the distance from the bottom of the TV to the center of the screen should be as close as possible to the distance measured for the height of your eyes.

The distance you can vary from the "perfect" viewing location is much greater horizontally that it is vertically.

I have a strong feeling that I'm misunderstanding the question.

Thank you. That answers the question. Neither Best buy or Circuit city have any stand that would meet these requirements for the mits. The official mitsu stand is 18 inches high and mine was 22 so that made a big difference. Why is it that mitsu puts a built in stand on the tv, instead of flat on the bottom?

To sell stands?

Does Mitsubishi use proprietary video processing chips or do they use off-the-shelf chips such as Silicon Optix or Faroudja?

Are the chips different in the different levels of sets? For example, I assume the 833 uses a more advanced chip than the 733 to achieve 120 Hz refresh rates.

I'm thinking of getting the new Onkyo TX-SR875 receiver with the Silicon Optix Reon processor but I wonder if the processor in the WD-65833 would be just as capable when viewing source material that is less than 1080p.

Anybody know?

just bought a 65733 and I am noticing a really annoying buzzing/whining sound coming from back of the tv by the fan else anyone notice this? I have already exchanged it for another one and it has the same problem, so I asume this must be how the tv sounds
post #159 of 486
I just bought a 65733 today also, and I got the Whining sound also. its driving me crazy.. I guess this is the Colorwheel . the tv has about 3hr of use now.... Are all DLP this noisy?

No.

It can also be the power supply, but then you would hear it when the set is in standby mode.

At this point color wheels should be almost silent unless you have unusual hearing.
post #161 of 486
Hmm.. then These new models most have some bad bearings or something.. do mits run on Air Bearings? the set is quiet in standby mode
post #162 of 486
well, The wife hears it also.. so There something wrong ..

I did compare the mits to the tohsiba 65". The colors were much better. The picture seemed to pop out compared to the toshiba which seemed duller. The screen also looked bigger on the mits. But that illusion may be due to the small stand the tv is built on. The only thing my wife did not like is the at the tv is not flush with the tv stand like the toshiba is because of that small stand. The color of the tv is not shiny black like the toshiba. To her the mits therefore looks more old fashioned. But I care more about the picture. I am excited to try blu-ray movies/games with the PS3
Were you able to compare 65733 with the 65734?


Yea, after browsing online for a few day I realized that I could not find a 734 for less than 2700 before shipping and warranty. I actually had to check my sales reciept to make sure it said WD65734 and it does.....it said $2737.90 and thats including the tv, 5 year warranty, delivery, and taxes. I was not able to compare the 733 with this one but I think I made a good decision and picked toe right time and place to finally get a HDTV since I have been looking and researching them for the past year.

Now I need to find a way replace my Onkyo 595 with the 605 without the wife finding out. I guess I could say I had to send it off for repairs and they sent me a brand new one.

I just ordered some HDMI cables from monoprice and still don't have a stand yet but we are looking. I'm going to take the DVD player over to my brother house and show him what he is missing. He has a LG Plasma with no HD feed....he has ben watching SD channels and DVDs for the last 6 months.

The TV has fans also. Of course you should be able to 'hear' those from your TV. That is completely normal.
If you can hear it over TV volume that is set to a normal listening setting (such as 20+) then I would agree there is a problem.

I have been to several peoples homes who were complaining about a similar issue (not just Mits BTW), only in 1 case did I actually find a defect.

You need to consider this is electronic equipment and it requires cooling and there will be some noise from it.
post #165 of 486
I understand, I have a Sony 50" 1080 SXRD and its doesnt make any noise, If this is how DLP are I am going to have to REturn this tv and get a Another Sony,

It has to be the colorwheel because I hear it spin up when I turn on the TV..

How are the Samsung DLP with LED?
post #166 of 486
I had a Sammy RPTV years back that was silent, and I REALLY wanted to keep this Mitsu because the picture was sooooo sweat but the noise coming from the fan is WAY to annoying its not really a blowing fan noise as its more of a buzzing whining sound coming from the fan area, I even tried turning the volume way up but it still doesn't mask the sound very well..... It really kills me to take back this set but after getting two exhanged I don't know what else to do
post #167 of 486
There's something wrong if it's that loud. We can make PCs that are virtually silent, so I find it hard to believe that these TVs are making that much noise. I find it even harder to believe that the engineers and designers of the display would have overlooked loud noise coming from the fan/color wheel. My guess is that the assembly plant has a batch of bad parts and QC in Japan has not connected with assembly in Mexico.
post #168 of 486
this is not good i have 3g's of sears monopoly money burning a hole in my pocket for a replacement 65" set. I hope this isn't widespread.

My selections are limited as sears couldn't fix my WS65311...



hmm
post #169 of 486
I am also getting the loud whining noise. Sounds to be coming from the back right side. It is damn annoying. I am returning my set for other reasons but this is definitely another reason for return. I just hope I don't hear this from another DLP (Toshiba) I ordered for exchange.
post #170 of 486
not sounding good.
post #171 of 486
My Local BestBuy doesnt have another 733 instock, I dont know what to do, the toshiba 65 is out of stock also.. I am getting the sound from the back right also.

BB should be getting more 733 in stock since it is brand new. The toshiba 65hm167 is being discontinued according to best buy. But they can still order it from the manufacturer. It will take about 2 weeks to order. My BB called around several stores to locate one for me. I will get the Toshiba this Saturday then I can compare the 733 and 65hm167.
What stand are you using for the 733. From BB also?
post #173 of 486
I am using a new stand they got in its wood color with Doors on front $399.99

I ended up taking mine back too, I tried listing to the one in the store but its so noisey in there you can't here anything...I just can't see this being a problem with ALL dlp's because my old one sounded fine, but I don't want to go through any more exhanges again so smaller plasma it is I guess
post #175 of 486
I am torn on what to do.. a 1080p Plasma is big bucks.. I think this 1st batch of 733 has some bad fans or something
post #176 of 486

The specs confirm no split scren
..anyway...who really uses it anyway
post #178 of 486
i use split screen on my 65 crt currently to annoy the wife with the htpc on the other screen. Its very useless in my opinion. If your not a sports fanatic.

Its also very difficult to connect since most of us route stuff through the reciever for video switching. I always got a dirty look from the wife when i told her i had to make some adjustments to the htpc and was going to "give" her the left half of the screen.

Perhaps they took a survey and realized that there were angry wives accross the country disaproving of this feature.

I didn't notice until you mentioned it, then I went back and checked the spec sheets for the 734 and the 732. You're right!

I saw the feature on the 732 at Best Buy and really liked it. I just assumed it would be on the 734. Why wouldn't they put it on? I'm sure it doesn't add any components that would raise the cost to manufacture the set.

Dumb, Mitsubishi. Really dumb.

You are very much the exception. I would be surprised if more than a few percent of owners ever used it. Some of the earliest Mits CRT sets with PIP had a problem with leaky caps on the PIP module that ate up the traces on the board and caused the sets to lose vertical sync and luma. Early on we found that it was easy to bypass the PIP circuit with a couple of caps. We would give clients the choice of repairing or replacing the PIP module or jsut bypassing it. Most had never even turned the PIP on. Same these days. Most consumers could care less.
