    I just bought the TV and don't feel like I get the best out off it yet.

    Yeah, I got mine this morning, and tried to figure it out alone.

    These guys love to read what we say, but they rarely help anyone with less than a hundred posts.

    If you find out a good selection, let me know.


    I don't want to void my warranty, so I'm gonna give Sony a call tomorrow, and have them optimize my set.


    The components for my Gamecube really kick ass!


     


    Good luck.

    4eyes- Welcome to Agoraquest.

    4eyes/drone8888- Having a professional optimize you set is a little expensive-but I have heard that it's worth it. I'm happy with my picture after the calibration DVD. Why don't you guys first try a calibration DVD such as Video Essentials, AVIA, or the one I have Sound & Vision-I got it from bestbuy.com for $15.86 including tax, and free shipping. Also, DVDs like Finding Nemo and The Lion King have THX optimizers on them, and work pretty well. If you are unsatisfied with the picture, I bet this would make a difference for you.

    Good thing I have the Lion King!!

    Anyways, I ordered the Digital Video Essentials, yesterday, as a matter of fact.

    I'm just so hyped, though.

    I want to get it pretty, real soon.

    I just watched What Dreams May Come, and The Blue Planet-Coral Seas,......without the progressive scan turned on, on my player.

    Now I'm really excited. To think that these movies looked so awesome without the PS.

    Thanks for all of your support, since I've began here.

    I appreciate it.

    drone8888- IMO the DVD's look better with the player set to 'interlaced' rather than 'progressive'. As you probably know, if set to 'progressive' the DVD player has to then convert the signal from digital to analog to allow it to pass through the component  connection. Then the KF-50WE610 converts the signal to the panel's native resolution of 788p. This IMO this might explain why the 'interlaced' picture looks better-at least to me. I have my satellite receiver set to output all signals in 720p, using the DVI, IMO the picture looks smoother than 1080i.

    Yeah, I just tried the Animatrix, with progressive on.

    WOW! Thats what comes too mind.

    It looked so amazing.

    My only concern is, using VIVID.

    I feel it may burn out a pixel, or strain the bulb. It is ridiculously, VIVID.

    How do you feel using VIVID??

    Have you messed with the geometry, on your set yet??

    If so, has it enhanced the quality of your inputs??

    Let me know.

    Thanks Toli, you're awesome!

    drone8888- I don't use the 'VIVID' setting-just use the 'STANDARD' setting-I adjusted the 'STANDARD' setting with the Sound & Vision calibration DVD. I like the way it looks now. I know people have done it successfully, but I have read posts from many people that have went into the service menu, and then were back on here looking for help because thier picture was screwed up. Some might disagree with this-but unless I was trained as a tech, I would stay out of the service menu-unless the TV was seriously out of adjustment and it was out of warranty.

    Also, this is my opinion, but I think you'll find setting the DVD player to interlaced will give you the better picture.

    BTW-If you didn't know-when you make adjustments on the video modes i.e. 'STANDARD', the hold for all the inputs as well.
