Thanks, lamborghini!

I did order a H40K311 (Full HD Smart) from Flipkart on Thursday night after our TV refused to stay on for more than 10 seconds, and the ladies in the house started getting antsy

I had the confidence to order it based on your feedback; thank you!!

Didn't care about Smart, but this model seemed to have everything I wanted and had good ratings, so took the plunge. It comes standard with 3 year warranty. Due to receive it today, with installation also scheduled for today. Some on FK have got broken / problematic Vus, keeping my fingers crossed for a good experience.

Prices at brick and mortar stores are not too far off right now, with new year / Pongal discounts and all as compared to Flipkart etc. If online price is lower and we show it to them, then they match the price at Reliance Digital or Chroma. This is the experience of my friends.

Installed and working Saturday at 12:30 pm! Since the pic looked crummy with the composite video feed from the Tata Sky SD set top box, called Tata Sky, and presto, within an hour a guy showed up with an HD set top box and an HDMI cable (he was already in my flat complex for some other issue, and I guess they always have a couple of extra STBs with them)!

Janta at home is very happy, and so am I with the speed at which things happened. PQ is quite good for us, since we upshifted from an SD TV. I was afraid the sound would be too weak, but it's definitely loud enough. Down the road may think of getting a decent soundbar to improve AQ.

If anybody has suggestions on the soundbar, please let me know. LG LH70B (5k street) and Philips HTL2163B/12 (10k street) seem to be good. Don't want to spend more. Thanks.

After checking out the threads and research I have zeroed in on a Sony X85D 4K HDR with Android TV. The price quoted after negotiation is 1.5L with nothing extra and standard 1 year warranty. Any opinions?

Anyone has any idea about how to install Amazon Prime Video on Samsung Curved Smart TV?

Any other way to stream it to TV if the app is not available on Samsung Store? Currently use an iPhone 6.

You yourself have answerd the question. If it is there on Samsung store, then you can install it.
Else, you need to use a device like chromecast or similar to attach to the tv. I hope amazon video is compatible with chromecast.

It's available on the Samsung App Store. Now only if Hotstar joined the bandwagon, then we're set!

Default Re: The TV Thread - LCD, LED etc.

Currently have a stone age Sony 21" CRT that turns 10 this November. Am looking to semi-retire as the primary TV as its a hassle with my current requirements.

My primary requirements:
- Plex streaming over wifi/Ethernet. This is mandatory. 95% of my usage is here. Using Chromecast, Apple TV streaming is getting to be a pain. So native Plex app is welcome.
- A HD STB for occasional usage.
- Would need to use with 2 bluetooth speakers. I think this can be workaround by plugging in a A2D converter and bluetooth audio transmitter to the TV.
- Occasional Youtube usage.

I had cursory look at the Sony Android TV 43", at 70K am not sure it is worth paying that much for the usage am looking. Moreover I'd also shell some amount on a NAS drive to make my content not requiring my computer on all the time.

Any suggestions?

Also, is it possible to hookup Chromecast, Apple TV with an old TV?

Default Re: The TV Thread - LCD, LED etc.

I've bought a Micromax 43" LED TV for my mums room. It's a "non-smart" full HD TV for which I've ordered for a Chromecast 2 from Flipkart since her primary usage will be watching YouTube.

Now I'm looking for better alternatives than Chromecast, so I can also download & play movies (so it should have a little internal storage).

I'm considering buying MiBox 3 Pro 3S from Ali Express. It costs just 2.5k more, but has a decent number of features. But, I don't want to / can't play 4K videos. Any alternatives ?

I'm looking for suggestions, please help I've become a n00b at this!

Roku 3 player / Roku streaming stick 3600 is a good alternative to Chromecast 2. Although it does not cast everything from mobile / tablets. The streaming content itself offers a wide variety and is much better than Chromecast.

Mateen.

A cousin bought a Sanyo LED TV. On the carton box one of the salient features written is "Bright Panel". Is there something definitely positive and latest tech about a bright panel? I for one do not like very bright screen but maybe I am missing something here.
