According to the information we have received, there is a feature (AC3) that has been deactivated from the HDMI ports, by the factory, due to lip synchronization issues caused by some peripheral device manufacturers. A service center can turn it back on using the AC3 EDID procedure, which can be explained to the technician by our Technical Support staff, if needed. A simpler option, if possible, may be to simply connect the audio from each device directly to the receiver system. If this is done, then the Dolby Digital signals should pass through. DTS likely will not.

I apologize, but no; this television does not have any means available by which it might buffer additional data. It is recommended to check the network traffic, and/or the available bandwidth to the TV that might be restricting the data transfer. This television has already been designed to be able to buffer a 1080p resolution video smoothly. It is more likely that some other aspect is causing the lag in the video performance.

Question

Netflix aspect ratio

When running Netflix through the tv, the aspect ratio does not change to match a 4:3 aspect ratio. For some reason it always stretches the picture. Is there a way to change this setting for Netflix? It does work correctly when watching regular television. It is also not an issue when running Netflix through the attached PS3.

I don't run netflix, but I do use Amazon Prime to watch videos/movies.
You should be able to set the aspect ratio. When you are showing the input that you have Netflix, go to your video set-up and change to show "Native Resolution". That should keep the same format and eliminate it trying to stretch or adjust in some other way to force the picture to fit the screen and causing the picture to distort.
Good luck and hope this helps.

We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this television. When viewing your Netflix video, access the Q.MENU feature. See if an ASPECT RATIO is available there. If not, then there will not be a way to change the ratio.

The show you are watching is sent to you in 720p. Most cable companies have not made it to 1080p yet and will broadcast 1080i at best. Just... avoid 1080i and wait until cable companies sort out the delivery of 1080p. As I posted in another answer upscaling to 1080i causes disgusting visual artifacts worthy of 1996 content.

Until them... meh; 720p isn't that bad at all.

We appreciate your interest in this television. The native resolution of this unit is 1080p already. As such, all signals received by this television will be processed to fit the full resolution of the screen. If you are seeing a resolution listed differently on the screen, this is telling you of the resolution being received. The TV has no control over the signal it receives.

We appreciate your interest in this television. It is uncertain to what “pairing number” you are referring. The only device designed for pairing with this TV is the Magic Motion Remote Control, and it does not utilize a “pairing number”. Pairing is performed by registering the controller to the TV by pressing the ENTER button on the remote, while aiming it at the set.

The Cinema Zoom is not designed to perfectly match a 16:9 screen, such as you have. The Cinema Zoom formats an image to the CinemaScope ratio of 2.35:1, rather than the 1.78:1 format of the screen.

When viewing television signals from the external antenna, the television will be able to provide the Closed Captions. When viewing the VIDEO1 setting, for the VCR, the VCR remote control will need to activate the captions in the VCR menu. When viewing the Cable Box, the cable remote will be needed to activate the captions in the Cable Box system. When attempting to use the captions feature, you will have to consider which device’s tuner is in use. The TV can only control those captions generated by its tuner, and the TV tuner is only operable through the ANTENNA mode. If you have additional questions about this situation, please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000.
