Please do, we (all six AV nerds reading this) will be ohh so grateful!
The set weights 240 pounds. That's right---it takes a few people to move it.
Sweet Jesus, and I thought my 747i (your 65" HDTV's predecessor) was heavy at 135 pounds!
Does the front of the TV have a heavy glass protecting the screen? That's what accounted for the bulk of the extra weight (compared to similar-sized HDTV's) on my 747i. Also, how do the built-in speakers sound compared to the built-in speakers of the Sony XBR? I know it can't compare to a proper surround sound set-up but but the 747i had pretty rockin' built-in speakers (50W output). I'd be curious to see how the new 65" Olevia stacks-up audiowise.
One more other thing, the TV is actually lacking some of the settings it talks about in the manual. I.e. there are no sub-menus for choosing the PIP source or for moving it around. Maybe a firmware update will fix this. For now, I simply cannot find them. Don't like the menu system in general especially the fact that I cannot TURN OFF certain inputs (ala the Sony) which makes it a hassle to cycle through...
Wow, that's odd. Are you sure you're just thrown off by Olevia's unintuitive wheel interface? Because the PIP options for moving around/input are in the sub-menu after you press 'Screen.'
