    To book a calibration go to www.lionav.com and use the "book a calibration form", then use the paypal link to send the required $50 travel fee. If you are in most parts of New England the travel fee will be deducted from the cost of the calibration.

    My home # is 207 778 5417. My cell # is 201 232 3380. Feel free to call to discuss any calibration related issues.

    I am leaving on a 3 week tour tomorrow so I will have limited email availability.

    Regards

    Hello Gregg,

    I'm interested (New Jersey) as well but unfortunately I'm waiting for a Sony Authorized Repair Tech to fix my flicker problem on my KP-57WV700. He's coming tomorrow, so I have to wait and see what the outcome is (i.e.: parts on backorder, butcher job requiring a replacement set or parts replaced but left with poor geometry and convergence, etc..).

    Perhaps I'm being too pesimistic but from what I've read, it's rare to get a good tech that will not only replace the parts but tweak it back to at least it's day 1 condition.

    If I can't book you for your March leg of the tour then perhaps sometime in July.

    Greg,

    I am moving on March 15 to a new house and I assume I'll have to re-calibrate everything after moving my Toshiba 52 inch RPTV. Two questions:

    Before I have the movers move it, any adjustments I need to do to it? Any precautions, other than making sure the movers are insured. lol

    and 2, I most likely can't have you do my ISF in March (short of funds) but I want it done eventually. When do you think you might be getting back around to the Southern States (I'm in Myrtle Beach, SC)?

    Thanks,

    Joe

    Greg, sorry I didn't call you a month or so ago... time flies...

    I'm still interested--are you going through NC at all? I can't drum up any business here in Wilmington, so I'm willing to pay an extra trip charge--unless you enjoy it too much here in our beautiful port city... [​IMG]

    I'll try to give you a call anyway...

    Thanks

    hi guys, finally back in Maine!!

    Joe, figure early fall to be safe.

    Marc, I just had another booking in Wilmington. If you want to book please do so ASAP as I am already over booked for my southern trip.

    regards

    Gregg, quick question: Is it worth calibrating a 4:3 set? I have a Toshiba 53H71 and have been wondering whether to do it or not.

    I also have the opportunity to sell it to someone for $1500 and then buy a 57H82 from OneCall for like $1900 shipped but I watch a lot of cable tv and don't know if I'll like the stretch modes.

    Ed, that is purely your call. The question is what is it worth to you to watch a color corrected image?

    Then the additional question of 4x3 vs 16x9.

    Best of luck, (I know its a delemma).
