Just bought a HK DVD 22 and it is hooked up directly via component to Sony 34XBR 800 tv. The HK apparently does not send the proper signal to tell the TV which screen mode to be in. If the HK plays a "enhanced wide screen" dvd, I have to manually set the TV to "full". Usually this is done automatically. Is this normal to the HK, or is this a problem?
I have a 34xbr800 set in the pro mode, factory default settings, for Direct TV, but only bump the brightness to ~35 in the pro mode when watching DVD's in progressive scan. I also neutralized the red push and that helped a great deal. Happy tweaking [ This message was edited by: renibats on 2003-05-28 22:06 ]
Again, thanks for the reply. No, the geometry is not messed up, actually, it is very good after the software tweaks. As for the color purity issue, I am going to think this out a great deal before I start adjusting the yolk. I'm still on the fence on how much the color purity issue bothers me, but opening up the set and adusting the magnets may be too daunting. Again thanks for the reply.

Thanks for the reply, but I already downloaded the service manual and cleaned up some of the geometrical problems, but the remaining geometrical problems cannot be addressed by simple service menu tweaks like the slight inward bend on a vertical line at the right edge toward the top and the slight horizontal bow at the bottom edge. Also I know there is a category name called "D_CONV" for the convergence tweaks but I need the know the EXACT procedure before attempting that. As for color purity, I am totally in the dark! Sony service techs make warranty visits only if ..
I have a 34xbr800 that has a slight convergence problem in the upper left corner. Also a slight inward bending of a vertical line in the upper right corner and a slight inward bow of a horizontal line on the lower border of the screen (news crawls transverse a slight mound . Finally can anything be done with color impurities in the corners. Any input would be greatly appreciated. [ This message was edited by: renibats on 2003-05-25 16:43 ]
In the TV Mode, brightness is at 55% (subjective) Component DVD progressive input, 70% brightness. (THX) S-Video DVD interlaced input, same as TV at 55%. (THX) DVD player is a new Sony NS725P. As the figures indicate, I have to push the brightness only through the component input. THX from the Star Wars DVD. I should say that to be truly accurate, I should put the settings back at the factory values and do a A/B comparision. But I don't like to be in the service mode too often.

I have a 34 XBR800 and made the exact modifications: I changed: RYR from 8 to 15. (red) RYB from 9 to 15. (red) GYR from 9 to 11. GYB from 6 to 10. and I noticed the picture brightness is not at the same level. Consequently, I have to push the brightness in the TV mode and especially when watching a DVD in the progressive mode. Has anybody had a similar situation?
I think I have a problem. I am using a Pioneer DV 09 DVD player hooked up to the component input on my 34XBR800. When I'm watching "Stars Wars I, (The Phantom Menace) dvd, the space scenes are midnight blue instead of black. The S-Video out on the DV09 to the S-Video in on the Sony produced black space scenes like one would expect. Does the TV need servicing or tweaking or is it DV09 the culprit?
