What codec and formats does the B6000 and B7000 LED LCD's support? Do they both support MKV?

Looks good, thanks. I'll probably get a B7000.

Does anyone know if I can turn off the decroative light in the bottom part of the bezel? I think its annoying.

In reply to: thanks

kenw232,

Yes, it can be turned off. It's called the Light Effect, and can be found in the Setup Menu. There are four ways to toggle this effect:

Off: LED is always Off.
In Standby: LED is On when TV is turned off.
Watching TV: LED is On when watching TV.
Always: LED is always On, regardless of TV settings.

I hope that helps.

"Full" DLNA Support?
by arrrghhh / May 4, 2009 12:21 AM PDT

I have a PS3 - or should I say had, long story - and it can play some files thru DLNA (MP4, AVI, MPG) - but doesn't have native support for much and I have to re-encode video on the fly which can be painful. Now this TV looked promising - I got it home, hooked it up - none, NONE of the files on my server worked normally or transcoded. Now I have two UPNP media servers (mediatomb & ps3media) and obviously the second is geared towards the PS3, but I thought DLNA was DLNA, so long as the client has the codec - am I wrong? Is there something I'm missing?
