What is the problem with the picture quality? Have you tried to ajust it with the TV's menu? I have the KV-32FV16 with the dish networks 4900 receiver and the picture is wonderful. I also have the receiver connected to the TV with S-video cable, and the DVD connected with componet video. The sound on the FV series TV is very good, but if you are going to get a DVD player invest into a surround sound system. Look at Cambridge Sound Works (www.hifi.com) great prouducts and great prices. Also Sears for a great price on a DD,DTS Sony Reciever they match any internet price except e-bay.

There are some forum topics here that talks about VE vs Aiva. I personally like VE. But those forums go more into detail. Also, in the coming week, I will be posting some awesome PDF documents regarding VE vs Aiva and television calibration. Also, from what I have read and done, "Movie" mode is the best option.

I would suggest to always use movie mode. This is the only mode that will allow the full video bandwith through, and by default in the service menu has the best picture setttings to start with. When you calibrate the set make sure you are setting the brightness with the normal amount of viewing light. The other settings should be done when the room is pretty dark to get more accurate results. I have owned that tv before and could probably help on specific questions but the things you mention do not coincide with any experience i have had. You should be able to get the brightness of the dark bar to disapear on the high apl setting, while still being just BARELY visible on the low ( i mean even when you kno where to look its hard) to get a usable amount of picture during the day.
