re: specifically the wd65731, but in general any mits DLP


about the analog audio out jacks (red/white RCA jacks, not digital out) on the rear panel...

first, is regular stereo audio available when the HDMI and component inputs are selected?

second, is the volume level variable (i.e. controlled by the remote control's vol -/+ ),

or, is the volume level at these outputs fixed and thereby unaffected by the vol -/+ ?

third, are these outputs muted under control of the remote?

Yes, the audio is output thru the rca jacks with hdmi input, it is downgraded however to just stereo. And as far as I can tell the audio is fixed out, I can not find any way to change it to variable, the tv does have the ability to operate just about any piece of IR equipment via the NetCommand. With netcommand you can select what device you would like to have the sound from, either the tv or av receiver and it switches the inputs on the avr and mutes the tv speakers automatically, when you select avr for the sound the volume on the remote and the tv will control the avr volume.


The Netcommand is a nice feature, if it is set up properly, if not set up right it can be a headache.


Hope that helps.

I was hoping to get an answer that would confirm what the product specialist told me at

Mits. Instead, I got the exact opposite. Mits guy said that both mute and volume control

functions on the remote control the analog out jacks.


My first choice of TV is Samsung.

Unfortunately, they've booby trapped the analog audio

output so that it is fixed and non-muteable, which is makes those jacks

worthless.

Being able to control both mute and volume using only my Dish 622 remote are

requirements, especially since any properly designed TV would have this ability.

I know for sure that both Sony and JVC do not have this particular design blunder,

so I may be forced to go with those brands, unless it turns out that the Mits guy is

right and mute and volume do control the analog out jacks.


Anyhow, thanks for responding , maybe someone else will weigh in on this.

Just curious, but why do you need stereo analog out?

Why are the "fixed" outputs useless in your situation? The Mits ones are definately fixed.

Sony has selectable fixed or variable, JVC may as well.


The only thing that I can think of is you are hooking it directly to a sub or amplifier, if whatever you are hooking it to is remote controllable, the Mits NetCommand is the way to go.

I doubt many people use that feature.

Most people would use the AC3 output.

??? Looking at the user's manual, back panel, I see only one set of analog output jacks, the ones labeled 'monitor out'. Are you saying that there is another

"AC3' set of analog outputs?

Anyhow, I'm refering to the 'monitor out' jacks.

I'm hooking my TV to an audio amp that has no volume control, no mute,

no remote. When I was with comcast, no problem cause

the comcast DVR has both mute and volume built into the box.

Now I'm with Dish and there is no mute or volume built into their box.
