    My Ideal 2012 TV

    My ideal TV for 2012 would be:

    1. Full LED, Backlit with Local Dimming.
    2. Over 150 LEDs
    3. Non reflective screen.
    4. Passive 3D.
    5. Independent speakers ON/OFF when headphones are plugged in.
    6. Not an over-thin TV which sacrifices picture quality for design.

    My ideal 2012 TV has:

    a) Size > 46"
    b) Ambilight
    c) Local dimming with > 320 zones
    d) Compensation for the edges of bright-lit zones (so as not to see variations when a bright object moves in front of a solid colour)
    e) A full CMS (including colour) so that it can be calibrated.
    f) DD/DTS support
    g) Proper DVB-T EPG support
    h) Dedicated back-light control
    i) Mkv support with subtitles in utf-8 str format
    j) At least the picture quality of 9705
    k) Dual DVB-T2 tunner
    l) Slot for inserting a sata 2 2.5" disk for recordings
    m) Auto-calibration like the toshiba TVs

    Hi,

    I would add

    - all tuners should be dual tuners
    - USB recording independent from net connection (via DVB-EPG, manual: channel + start/end time)
    - integrated HMP device

    On the dual tuner: why not modular? Give users the option to select between DVB-T, S or C
    - PiP (Picture in Picture, also as side by side) ideally with dual tuner or at least between different inputs
    - faster menu
    - ambilight and 3D modus on dedicated remote buttons (like implemented in remote app - at least provide codes for logitech remotes)
    - picture settings on remote buttons
    - keep the none reflective display (AWESOME!!!), but at least also on a 50"/52" model

    A really minor thing that I'm sure could be added via firmware update would be the ability to rename the picture presets. I end up with a setting for 3D games (minimal processing to reduce lag), 3D films, games, bluray, SD TV, HD TV, and sports. It would be really nice to be able to rename these presets accordingly rather than having to remember that I use Standard for sports, Vivid for 3D games etc.

    A button on the remote control to flick bewteen these presets quickly would also be fantastic.

    My ideal 2012 TV has:

    - Only a few bugs
    - Less bugs than 2011
    - Good SW quality
    - Stability
    - Bug free

    But now serious, oh no, I already was serious ;-)
    - Good user interface (2011 model 9606 has a GUI I can only laugh or weep about)
    - POWER, POWER, POWER. Never should any menu or keypress have a slow response
    - Ability to fully control each feature over IP
    - Ability to customize remotes, menu's, etc
    - Extensive CODEC support (for DNLA)
