Surely one must exist?
HI Mitch, I live about 3.5 hours from you. May I be of assistance??
Let me know
That would be amazing. Here I was thinking that I'd be lucky if I even found an ISF-tech-in-training-with-lots-of-photocopied-manuals to work on the set. I never thought I'd be able to secure a virtual ISF superstar!

BTW, the problems I've had that have thus far been insolvable are:
- The sporadic appearance of a thin blue line at the very bottom of the screen (I haven't played with the overscan so it isn't that). It is most noticeable on Black & White material, but you can also see a tiny blue glow around certain harsh white objects in color material every now and then.
- A slight-but-noticeable white bleed/bloom effect, particular annoying on certain types of titles. No amount of tinkering with settings makes it go away, and sharpness is set to zero.
- A subtle ghosting/shimmering effect at the side of certain types of images.
- An overwhelming sense that the image is a bit less sharp than it could be (although it is impressively sharp just the same).
Also, another issue relates to VHS playback. I never expected it to look fantastic being magnified to such extremes, but it really looks horrible on this set - farrrr worse than anything on cable. I'm not kidding when I say that even a pristine pre-record looks like an EP dupe of an EP dupe, complete with intense up-conversion artifacting. I've tried connecting it both through normal RCAs and S-Video, but nothing improves. I've read others post that they found VHS playback on the 533 to be surprisingly good. I can definitely say this about cable, but VHS is literally unwatchable. Am I doing something wrong here (hopefully)?
There are other minor issues, but the above is the heavy stuff, so to speak. Overall though, I have to say the 533 is an astonishingly great set!
