I noticed this, too. I simply left the model pulldown at "2 series" and then filled in my SN when registering online. Seems like it went through, though I didn't get an e-mail verification (dunno if I was supposed to). I imagine I should call and see if I'm actually registered.

I e-mailed customer support and they told me to register the 237T as a 237V model, so you should be OK.

Thanks for the info. With all the price matching and what store to buy it at talk, it sounded like the info had been leaked. I was set to buy tonight but guess I can wait until Sunday.

Well, if this says anything about the picture, I had HD Discovery on. A ground hog was running around the screen, and one of our cats hissed and then freaked out

You can set up a PIP window through the 237T menu and then initiate another PIP with the Comcast remote, giving you 3 on screen windows. Fun stuff!

That's good to know.

Now to figure out how to set it up - evidently mine isn't turned on........

LOL!! How's that for realism. Discovery HD looks spectacular on this set. "Mojo", National Geographic and MTVHD are other standouts.

Here's a question: that staticy line at the top of the screen. Not always there. I've read it's SD broadcasting over HD and being upscaled. Any good ways to get rid of it other than moving your screen up or down? I ask because SD over HD channels, according to my cable box is 720p. Nonetheless, it is usually clear, whereas many of the SD channels are "fuzzY" (comparitively speaking) for the same broadcast. So I'd rather watch the HD channel.

I thought that was caused from closed captioning?

i finally got the 237T hooked up tonite. i'm very impressed! pic quality out of the box is very good. dont need any adjustments. no dead or stuck pixels and no buzzing sound from the back. it all looks perfect! one question though, my cd rom will not play on my computer. i put it in and get nothing. i've put in other ones and they work fine so i know its not a problem with the computer. any help would be
appreciated.


edit: just wanted to give everybody a heads up on the tv. one word: FANTASTIC!!
i was tired last night so i couldnt really go into alot of detail. the tv is perfect. no stuck or dead pixels. picture was great out of the box. auto scan found 76 analog and 75 digital channels including a boat load of music channels as everyone else has reported. turn on time about 7-10 sec. channel switching about 2-3 sec. no big deal. i got all four of my local network hi def feeds ( CBS,ABC,NBC,&FOX) without using a antenna and 2 of them are 100 miles away! i'm using basic cable right out of the wall. analog channels are perfect and just as good as the tube tv i was using. sound is very good with no noises that i can tell. OSD is not difficult at all. after going thru it 2-3 times its really very simple. no problems. overall, i'm very pleased! anybody debating this tv i can say you will not be dissappointed.

The source was right. Target has this for $11 less than Office Depot did. Sigh, I'll return mine today (I really want the 90 day return policy). I wonder if Target's comes with an HDMI cable?

I think all the newer manufactured ones do. It should also have the latest firmware

yep, its great! i cant stop watching it. i cant wait to get a HT system hooked up! still cant figure out why the CDROM wont play on my computer. oh well, i got everything started up with the quick start guide. it was fairly easy.

I just snagged a Olevia 237T at the Target for $688.

Firmware Version: 237-T11-061218A

It is having the same problems as the display model did. I cannot get auto channel search or most other menu options to work. The other day I hooked up a crappy antenna to the display so I could pick up some local HD channels. When I tried to start the Auto Channel Search nothing happened. When I used the same button presses on the 26, 32, and 42 inch versions the Auto Channel Search started up fine. Now my TV is exhibiting the same problems. I can get to the option in the menu but I can't select it. For the first few minutes my TV was plugged in it was working fine. I fooled with the aspect ratio settings while watching Happy Feet off my PS3. Then I switched to s-video for the SNES. It was in nasty stretched mode and I pressed the aspect ratio button, the screen blinked, and it stayed on what it said was full screen. At some point during my playing with the menus I did hit restore factory defaults.

Has anyone been having similar problems with thier 237T?

I checked Olevia's website and the 237T doesn't have any firmware upgrades available.

I hope I don't have to return this thing cause it was a great deal.
Its so much bigger then my 26" Magnavox LCD HDTV.

EDIT: What really sucks is that I don't have internet access at my new place yet and I'm posting at my parents house.

Have you tried resetting the TV? Have you tried bypassing the remote and using the controls on the TV?

Are you talking about the owners manual?

no sound or picture. (

If it's the owners manual then it won't have sound. Have you tried right clicking on it to check it's files?

Smileyscout if you decide to reset your TV just make sure you follow the directions in the 537H thread. It's more involved than just unplugging the set. If you can't find the directions then just ask and I'll repost them here for you

Sounds like you are in "showroom" mode. Go to menu > picture > mode > power up then select home. At least thats how the menu on the 537h works I woul;d imagine its the same for the 237t
post #52 of 1473
It was showroom mode. I figured that out when I went home and played with it some more. Wow am I slow.

Now that I know how to use my TV right its awesome. Blu-ray via the PS3 look awesome. Upscaled anime via PS3 looks very good too. I'll have to snag a reference DVD or something to calibrate it but I'm pretty happy with it. The Wii looks pretty bad but thats just because its only 480p. My SNES looks pretty good over S-Video in the right aspect ratio. Now I just have to sell my 26" Magnavox so I can pay off some of the 237T.

As soon as the fiance' gets back I'll hook up the Target TV. Hopefully it'll be as good as the Office Depot buy with NO stuck or dead pixels

She was slightly annoyed when I told her I was swapping. The Target box doesn't have the easy release pop tabs on the bottom that the Office Depot box did

Does anyone have any opinion(s) on the "Idea" settings?
post #54 of 1473
I just bought one from target also. I noticed at target it advertised two hdmi inputs but the box says one? It is going in my bedroom so it might not matter.

Does anything come up at all?

If you get to the menu and click on the manual, do you have Adobe installed?

Is everything else the same? HDMI cable? On-site warranty?

If all else fails, you can download the 237V manual. It's virtually identical for settings and connections.
