    I have done the red push and green push in the service menu and I have use the avia disc to configure the rest of the settings but I don't know what to configure the DRC to or what test to use. I use standard setting, SMV off, Cinemotion, and used the avia settings I came up with. Any help would be appreciated. Thanx.

    There are no set configuration settings for the adjustable DRC on your monitor.

    Understand that before you could adjust the DRC, it was always "ON" with respect to older Sony models. This cause a little bit of a problem for those people who where having reception problems because the DRC had a tendency to magnify any artifacts, basically making the picture worse.

    Now, with the adjustable DRC, you can tone down the line doubling for those situations where your signal reception is not the greatest.

    Basically. For example, I have an older model XBR where I have the following choices: Interlace, Progressive, and Cinemotion.

    For normal cable viewing, my DRC is set to Interlace mode, which is equivalent to (960i).

    When I'm viewing my DVD's, my DRC on my monitor is not operational, becuase my player is doing the 3:2 pulldown (480p).

    If I had just an interlace DVD player, then I would set the DRC to "Cinemotion" mode (480p) and let the monitor do the 3:2 pullddown.

    The only times that I can think of using just the "Progressive" mode (480p) is when I'm viewing JPEG pictures via the DVD player.

    You have the added benefit of reducing the amount of DRC processing, depending on the quality of your Sat/Cable/OTA signal.

    Just out of curiousity, have you ever heard the term C.E., as it applies to Field Service ?
