All very interesting as I had rt3 as my top pick as the sound bar for my bedroom 65" lg tv.
But resisted buying as the reviews were mixed.
The room is just 12 x 12 and the major requirement is voice clarity.
Sitting 8' from the tv , the dialogues are not very clear with the lg having a bass heavy output , even in clear voice setting.
Sitting 4' away , the dialogue is clear.
Presently use a small bluetooth speaker for the dialogues but this is a stop gap .

So where did chulbulee finally end up ?

Persisting with the rt3 with all its shortcomings or shifted to a surround sound ?

How are people with similar TV's in their bedrooms managing ?

Two times it got repaired. Just serves the purpose if Blue Ray movies are played. With ott platform only some movies play the satelite speakers and mostly the center speaker(sound bar) plays it. With blue ray content, I would say it is value for money as even without the clearvoice+ the two speakers outside of the soundbar turns in and it is clearly better than a 2.1 channel soundbar. The other alternatives are priced at Rs.30000 (Yamaha 1820 htib) atleast or about 90000 (elac cinema 5.1 speakers set plus a Denon 250BT avr). So I don't know what to say about HTRT3. Initially it was really great but my ears now want more.

Persisting with RT3, as its a new purchase and my limit too.

Problem is the one with everything electronic. Like PC not detecting printer on USB or bluetooth not identifying nearby speaker ...

My LG sometimes detects the HDMI and otherwise not. While using bluetooth, the 5.1 effect is gone, power output is around 10-15% only. LG says our TV is giving output, Sony says our system is OK. Don't know whom to blame. Decade old technology yet connectivity is a prolem

Did u try optical (toslink) - that is quite stable than hdmi. And that's enough for HTRT3 standards. You won't miss hdmi. For me the optical provided the solution for 6 months almost after which my wife while cleaning broke the pin by mistake and I have been using hdmi ever since which now works!!
