I purchased the Dynex 32" from Best Buy back in late December 2008 and so far so good. I have noticed a couple issues mentioned in this thread though that I am experiencing too. Number 1: One day I turned on the TV and saw it was on channel 65535 (or was it 65536?). There was no picture or anything and I couldn't change channels. A channel re-scan solved that problem. Number 2: I have digital cable connected directly to the TV (no cable box) and there are times when the remote does not respond. After it does start responding again (usually 20-30 seconds) I notice new channels but I cannot view them. I suspect there are encrypted QAM channels, hence the reason i cannot see them. Also if I have channels re-labeled it will erase that information.. very annoying. Since a few of those episodes I have given up on re-labeling my channels. Oh... 1 other "annoyance"... about 2-3 days after doing a channel scan I will notice 1 or 2 of the QAM channels will default to channel 1.1, hence I will have 2 or 3 channels labelled "1.1". Someone mention that this is a good TV if you hook it up directly to a cable box or go OTA with an antenna; I have to agree with that statement.
The backlight: I lowered mine to 75 via the remote using
<2><5><8><0>, then scrolled to "Other Settings" then "Backlight". Also I set the "Dynamic" picture settings to Contrast 70, Brightness 70, Color 60, Tint 0, Sharpness 60, and Cool color. That seems to work well for sports (golf, hockey, football). Hope this helps someone... Take care and God bless.. Bill
