Sorry My Mistake. I have a quote for both the 50 & 61 Inch but the price
are reversed..... I missed that when I wrote the post
Correct model number is HD61lpw162

Thanks for pointing it out.

OK OK.... It is a 61 inch Rear projection LCD with DLP...?

I haven't seen it myself since it is so far a cathalog purchase. I am
looking for a Thompson/RCA showroom in the Toronto area to actually view it.
Any information would help

You are right

It is a DLP and the model number stated is for a 51" unit and not the 61" I
am interested in...

DLP and LCD are two different technologies. It is a DLP set. I assume
it's based on the HD2 DMD from TI. There are newer HD2+ and HD3 chipsets
reaching the market as I write this. If it uses the HD2, I would
recommend you look at any DLP sets using the HD3 chipset as that is more
affordable than the HD2+ (naming is confusing). Unless you are getting a
great deal, that is.

You are right David it is a DLP set... I thought DLP was some chip upgrade
to LCD Technlology. I did however update my understanding overnight...
thanks to the Internet.
As for the HD2+ or HD3 chipset.... Mmmm.... How to find out which one it
is?

I don't think it is either. Probably the older HD2 chipset. I would try
and download the manual from the RCA web site. If not, I would call RCA
and ask them directly.

It is an HD2+

Guy. Goggle the Model number - you'll get three his and answers to lots
of your questions. I've never seen the set, however it sure looks like
it has lots of whistles and bells.

"The HD61LPW163 is a Digital Cable Ready HDTV set that includes secure
digital connections utilizing the High Definition Multimedia Interface
(HDMI) with HDCP copy protection offering the ability to connect to a
set-top device and receive digital and audio signals on one small cable.
The HD61LPW163 also includes dual two-way DTVLink (1394) secure digital
interfaces for recording compressed digital signals with a
high-definition recording device. The RCA HD61LPW163 also features the
innovative "floating picture" design and includes an optical digital
audio surround sound system with audio from the built-in digital
tuner/decoder. " It goes on.

Just a question: I checked the manual and the web pages on the RCA site
and didn't see mention of the HD2+ chipset. Can you point me to the page
where you saw this mentioned.

Thanks.

David,

From that Google:

http://www.video-direct.com/rca/dlptv/rca-hd61lpw163.ht...

and

http://www.amroyal.com/sections/product.asp?PID=1552&Br...

And now I must apologize. I searched on the wrong model. (The last
digit being a 3 rather than the OP's 2)

For the OP's correct Model Number,


http://www.videodirect.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Scree...
http://tinyurl.com/3nxmw

This link says the 162 is also HD2+ Seems about a $200 difference
between the two models - not sure of the differences in hardware.

I can not find any reference at the RCA site.

Ok. Thanks.

I'm surprised RCA doesn't mention it anywhere.

I've had mine for three months. And have had no problems. Beautiful
Picture.....Allot of settings...allot of connections. Right now I have a
Bravo DVD connected to DVI . Cable HDTV connected with Component (also tried
iLink and DVI, both good), Xbox connected with Component. And am using the
Tuner for OTA Digital. I am very pleased. Also connected to the Internet and
using the remote keyboard...this is functional but not great....uses Windows
CE. Cannot stream video / mp3 and it is a bit difficult to pull images from
a local server. I also have a 2 yr deal on the bulb. It does not look
difficult to replace. There is a high and lower bulb intensity setting
.....There is a subtle difference in brightness between the two settings, but
the lower setting should increase the bulb life. I've got mine on high
now.......Hopefully it will blow during the warranty...wink wink nudge
nudge.
