In order to get the best picture quality from this tv you have to purchase the hdmi cables and also have high definition programming. For the captions you should be able to adjust them on the menu settings. Hope this helps.

If you have an HDTV, you need an HDMI cable to receive a high definition picture. Should you pick an antenna, Digital Cable or Satellite to pick up HDTV signals? Only the antenna is free of monthly charges, but you will only be able to receive the "broadcast" channels. You will also have to perform antenna gymnastics to receive different channels. While being the free option, if you can afford an HDTV then you can afford cable or satellite.

Whether you pick Digital Cable or Satellite depends on cost and amount of HDTV programming. If you want to go with satellite then you should see if you could get line of sight to the satellite. You don't want to spend hundreds of dollars on a dish, only to find out that your neighbor's gigantic oak tree is blocking your beam. In some areas digital cable may win over satellite, but in other areas the opposite may be true. Don't trust the companies to tell you the whole truth, but go visit your neighbors and ask to watch their HDTV.

To receive a high definition signal, you must have:
1) a device that outputs high definition such as a Blu-Ray, HD satellite, or HD cable box, with an HDMI cable, or
2) one of the devices above connected with a Component Video (Red/Blue/Green) cable, or
3) an antenna receiving a high definition signal over the air.

This model, and most TVs today, do not have headphone jacks.

The easiest solution for you would be using wireless headphones with the TV. The headphones have a transmitter that attaches to the audio outputs on the TV, which then sends the signal wirelessly to your headphones.

I chose DYNAMIC in Picture Mode and in Picture Settings I picked THEATRE1... The Theatre2 and 3 seemed to cut off the top of heads but the preferences I picked it completely covers the screen without cutting off heads and it's color is perfect. I am not tech saavy so this was very helpful that they had one setting that was perfect.

This model has the Stable Sound feature which limits high volume levels and prevents the extreme changes in volume that can occur when channels are changed or a program switches to a commercial.

Hopefully, you should never have to use it. Beginning December 13, 2012 the Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation (CALM) Act went into effect. The CALM act regulates the volume of commercials.

If you're interested in the details, you can find them at the address below.

It depends on your personal preferences and which model you own. Each manufacturer has recommended settings, however, so you may want to refer to your owner's manual documentation for more information if you haven't already done so. Best Buy also offers calibration services for customers looking to get the most out of their TV, so you may want to consider speaking with a home theater specialist at your local store for additional details.

No timer or sound leveler, does not swivel in it's base, although it is not difficult to turn the tv, but would need a different mount if you were going to constantly change the direction it faces.

answer 2
The TV has a Sleep Timer, but not a wake timer.

It doesn't have a sound lever, but it should no longer be needed. In December, the Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation Act, which limits the volume of TV commercials, went into effect. The federal law, known as CALM, requires broadcasters to ensure that TV commercials maintain the same volume as the entertainment programming in which the ads are contained.

The base doesn't swivel, but at 16.5 pounds the TV is easy to turn.

I don't know why you're having that problem. I looked at the antenna you listed, and it has the correct connector. You should push it onto the RF connector, which is the connector with screw threads on it.
