    My Two week old SXRD is hooked to my cable company dvr which is hoe I get the HD video. Here's my problem. Two days ago the TV started to blink. The picture would go black for about a tenth of a second than the picture would come back for a few seconds and than "blink". I checked to make sure all cabels were tight. I was set for cabel repair to check out the dvr box today but the blinking stopped. I cxled the repair service, but was wondering if anyone has had this problem.

    By the way thsi is the best tv I have ever seen. I am 1000% happy I purchased this set. I would just like to have an ides what caused this "blinking"
    AS usual thanks in advance for any help or info.

    Another thing could be that maybe the Lamp on the T.V. isn't properly installed.During shipping alot of times they are rough and sometimes things go bad.You have to be very careful with those lamps as they are very sensative.

    crt tube do show over 720p... and crt tube are the best possible tv quality.... regardless of plasma or what ever everyone says ... *(plasmas with time wil be best choice and they be called sed)*

    and i saw the sxrd and i must say these are far the best plasma i'v seen

    anoter tip . try to get things only from costco :p .... they have LIFETIME FULL CASH RETURN POLICY. on everything.. say you buy a crt tube ( if you find any ) you pay 1200 and you get bored of it in 3 years... return it no questions asked and you get your cash back . not store credit or exchange... cash ... its a warranty from them on their entire store . doesnt matter if you get bored of it or it breaks or w/e.... thats whre i got my 360 ... hehehe

    KD-34XBR960 here is some specs

    The good: Highest resolution of any consumer direct-view HDTV; independent memory per input; excellent color decoding.

    The bad: Bulky tube form factor.

    The bottom line: This is the reference standard for picture quality among direct-view HDTVs and happens to be a great value.

    Direct view CRT's may be a good choice if you don't want anything larger than 36 - 38 inches diagonal.

    Otherwise the SONY SXRD totally blows away everything so far. You can't go wrong with either the 50 or 60 inch model.

    i know i know its based on silicon thats why it looks good compared to regular plasma... i say plasma because they are slim....

    yep your right this is the next gen which is like the sed tech... its tech looks like crt tube tech but not crt tube just next level...

    Its noe exclusinve to sony. The SXRD tech is based on LCoS technology. They just added two more panels and got rid of the color wheel. JVC's HD-ila is the same thing.

    SED is the next big thing in TV!

    If SXRD is not exclusive to Sony then how come I don't see any SXRD sets from Samsung, Toshiba, Panasonic etc? You bet that if someone else came out with an SXRD set then SONY will be on top of them with a copyright lawsuit. That is unless they license the technology to other manufacturers.

    Thats not what I ment. Of course the SXRD is exclusive to Sony since it is a tradmark. What I ment was, SXRD is just a label. The technology it is based on is called LCoS (3-Chip LCoS). JVC is the only other manufacture of 3-Chip LCoS based technology to my knowlege. JVC calls their tech HD-ila, but again that is just another label.

    What is LCoS?

    I don't want to hijack this thread but I wanted to start a KDF/KDS SXRD thread, possibly an owners thread, and this was pretty close and not used for a while. This would be the place for all of us to discuss all things related to the above mentioned sets. Hey Creaky, if you think this would be better served by starting a new thread let me know. I invite all to share what you've got...what's hooked up and how, any problems or questions, etc. Thanks in advance.

    Sony KDS 60A2000
    Motorola/Comcast HDCable box
    Onkyo HTS790
    Phillips DVP 5960 upconverting DVD player
    PS2/Gamecube
    2 VCR's (My girlfriend won't go for the DVR!)

    BTW I found the screen to be too big for certain games, causing me to get motion sick which I am sensitive to, damn it! They (the games) do look good though!

    SXRD owners, can yall state where you purchased your sets for prospective buyers like myself.

    NE Problems with XBR2 models?
    Where did you purchase your sets?
    What the warranty cost are.
    Which stand is good for what model (besides the stock sony)

    And other stuff you may want to mention as a owner for us buyers to ask and look out for. Thanks in advance to all you guys for your input. *BJ*

    thats too bad that you didnt buy a warranty ALWAYS but warranty whenever you spent someting that cost more then warranty either that or costco

    but i found a nice set ( that used to cost 3,500 dolalrs at cc for 1,800!!! woot

    its a Sony 50" SXRD™ LCD Projection HDTV here is the link man what a savings for 50''+ fans that want the best in quality and for those that want perfect viewing angles then go for the sony 46'' kdl-46v2500 lcd that i just mentioned 2 post behind

    In a recent consumer reports article they state that rear projection units have problems with only approximately 10% of the sets. LCD and plasma have a better track record, albeit shorter. They say that they would not recommend extended warranties for LCD and plasma flat panels, and might cautiously recommend an extended warranty for a rear projection set depending on price, duration, and coverage.
