    well, I fixed geometry quite well on 36hs420, but when viewing hd channels, geometry is all messed up. I did crosshatch pattern from sound and vision to check 4:3 geometry and everything is about perfect, but when I switch the idsw to 1080i v comp, geometry is way off creating a type of funhouse mirror effect when the camera scrolls up and down. So, how can I fix geometry for two different settings, dvd and hd if geometry settings are to be global?

    Do you have the 2170D service-data charts for your TV? Or just the Excel spreadsheet/list?

    yes, I do, but inputing the default service settings from the service manual further messes up my geometry by a lot.

    Service manual values are just generic starting points to get a semi-usable picture. EVERY TV is different. Simply moving your TV could require geometry/convergence adjustments. Once at those basic settings, you need to use geometry patterns to set up your particular TV at it's current location.
