So here's my setup:
Samsung HL-S6187W 1080p HDTV
Denon 3806 A/V receiver
Denon 3910 Upconverting DVD Player
7.1 Klipsch Speaker configuration (1xSC-3, 2x SF-3, 4xSS-3, 1xKSW-12)
Japanese Playstation 2
American Playstation 2
Pelican System Selector Pro (All gaming consoles are routed through this)
I am NOT using the TV as a passthrough for audio, my DVD-player is connected directly to the receiver via optical and DenonLink (Currently using optical).
No Lip Sync issues, as far as I can tell. Actually, lip sync is much better than my HLP - I have been using Game Mode while gaming, and it really improves the processing speed of the TV, and I don't notice a delay at all. However, this degrades the image quality slightly, and as such, cannot be used except with consoles where that degradation is acceptable.
teddertots, I did not get the matching stand. Instead, I opted for the BDI Vector 9527
) since I got a great deal on it. It actually looks fantastic, it was one of the few stands that caught my eye at Magnolia while I was looking at stands/TVs. (And the width is PERFECT for my TV!)
For those confused, the TV definitely outputs a 1080p resolution, and accepts 1080p on both HDMI inputs. Samsung's brochures and PDFs are full of typos, but they're all we really have at the moment, official information-wise.
- cablecard: No
- TV Guide: Unsure, don't have cable/DirecTV
- Picture-in-Picture: Nothing mentioned in the manual about this
- Glossy black finish: yes, and I think it looks good, personally. The bezel is thin enough where anything reflected is not really noticable.
- PC Connectivity w/HDMI: The manual specifically says this is not possible, and does not support hooking up via an HDMI-DVI adapter.
