No lol , when watching reviews they have mentioned if anything is in the way between the remote and the sensor it won’t work as the remote needs to be lined up. When using the LG remote you can have it resting on the sofa arm and it works.I really don’t understand this, are you trying to change the channels in a different room?
For example your in the Kitchen and the TV is in the living room?
If I had anything between the remote and the TV, I wouldn't be able to see the TV.No lol , when watching reviews they have mentioned if anything is in the way between the remote and the sensor it won’t work as the remote needs to be lined up.

That’s mad as here the hz1500 is more by a fair bit. Wish it was that cheap in the uk as would buy that. That’s the only reason I’ve not got a Panasonic due to price and smart tv features.
I am using only netflix and Prime natively on the TV and since I have a receiver I was thinking of getting all in one device control system. A lot of manufacturers are all trying to cut costs on either materials, remotes etc. And even not adapting an Operating system which could evolve and include all of the popular apps. They are not conscientiously listening to us. Some reviewers think they listen to them but I am doubtful. I think it is dependant mainly on Economics and their tech road map. For instance Panasonic seems to be the leader and the main distro for the HDM! 2.1 chipset which is being clocked at 40Gbps on most systems. Panasonic is the slowest company to announce their full ranges too They are not in a rush on 2.1 or 8K. They could fool the consumer and market it and include it in their products now but I am thankful they did not as I am not using 8K media and do not expect to be interested maybe in a few years. I am totally content with 4K as I was with 1080 since last year. Everyone diving into the new stuff is kind of premature when even our fastest internet speeds are not up to par with the media stream. It has to be compressed and that takes away from the best experience. Blu-ray has survived and I think Samsung and LG are looking to kill it with fast adaption on new tech even in the premature stages of new stuff and failing the consumer. They dont care. Just looking to turnover product quick and paly catchup on bugs and fixes later. Even the amps have suffered their releases in relation to the consoles. Software always lagging behind software and hardware jumping ahead at blazing speeds which is craziness. Now is a good time to buy tech since we are stuck at home but I would not look for the one box solution as it will fail to please. It is worth buying a Panasonic now and like I mentioned earlier you can work around it and that is how I like to play it. Moving on with the chipset shortages and now the Audio chipset factory catching fire and adds to other delays, I suggest buy what you can, even last year tech and be patient and reap the rewards of a good picture or great sound. Especially in this climate.
Maybe the audio enthusiasts are their target with HZ1000, the sound bars and AMPS etc.Panasonic’s sales policy and (non-existent) marketing are crazy here. Logically, the HZ1000 should be cheaper than the HZ1500.
But then the HZ1500 is a dealer-exlclusive model, which is only offered by some dealers here, while the HZ1000 appears to be the mass market model (which in return wasn’t available for quite a while anywhere here). Panasonic also decided to throw out several HZ1500 models under different names (HZX1509, HZF1507, HZT1506, HZN1508) and no model called HZ1500. They are all the same but sold by different dealers and are not reviewed by anyone. So most people don’t even know they exist, (they are not even listet at Panasonic’s website). So the confusion is perfect.
Can anyone confirm they see the same on Netflix Suits S5 E15 approx 15:00. The pixelated lines. It’s throughout the whole episode, but less visible. I’m pretty sure I seen it on the previous episode too. I get it on ATV and the TVs Netflix app. Not sure if it’s a bitrate starved content issue.

Yeah agreed after seeing that.
In the Sonos app there is lip sync slider you can use to try and reduce lip sync issues. I can't remember if it delays or accelerates the sound outputted.Received my Sonos Arc yesterday. I watch all my stuff from Apple TV 4K.
Discovered that I have a slightly lip sync issue with Plex when watching movies with 23.976 fps.
(And no Atmos with EAC 5.1, but that's a Plex issue on the Apple TV 4K)
Netflix and Apple TV+ are working great.
Have I missed any settings on the HZ1000 itself?
Everything is on auto, not on Bitstream or PCM.
I will try that and see if that helps. Thanks!In the Sonos app there is lip sync slider you can use to try and reduce lip sync issues. I can't remember if it delays or accelerates the sound outputted.
Its located on the Arc set up page if I remember rightly.
I have Apple 4k Tv on my HX2000 but prefer the inbuilt apps for Netflix & Prime.
Does anyone know if the 55HZ980 is easy enough to use a wall mount/third party pedestal using the vesa holes? looking at pictures of the rear it looks like the top holes are hidden?
Thats great thanks. So these standoffs are definitely included with the tv? just making sure because there is no mention of them being included in the instructions on the panny website. TIA.The top holes are set back. But they come with some screw standoffs which you screw in first. Which then makes them flush with the back.
I mounted my 65 to a 3rd party stand and to the IKEA Uppleva stand with no problems
