    Whats's up with my Bettercables Silver Seroent Component Video Cable?!

    Thanks guys, But when I say grain, I actually mean seing deeper into the film (not animated DVD's like toy story)Perhaps grain is not the word I should have used. Both cables are in perfect working order. What I am trying to say is that I actually think the Monster has MORE detail and color...

    Whats's up with my Bettercables Silver Seroent Component Video Cable?!

    Hi Bob, My equipment is pretty modest. I am using a Sony DVP-ns755v as my source, and a kv32fv300 Wega. I can't run a progressive signal b/c the TV does not accept progressive. But for an analog set, it sure has a beautiful picture. Yes, youre analogy is quite correct with the tube amps. It...

    Whats's up with my Bettercables Silver Seroent Component Video Cable?!

    Just replaced a monster video 3. For the last 3 hours I have tried to justify this purchase. I just bought a new bettercables digital cable silver serpent and audio silver serpents for my outboard amps for the HT. The audio and digital were huge improvements right out of the bag. The component...

    Pinnacle Subs?

    Hi, I have a digital sub 150. it's the entry level 12 incher. I have had it for about 3 years and I am very impressed with it. Very flat respnse, does not roll of sharply in the low octaves, which is great considering the price I paid for it. I can just imagine what the 600 sounds like. If...

    bass management and denon avr-3300

    Quick Question. When selecting all speakers as "large", and selecting subwoofer "no" the .1 channel (LFE) is simply redirected(not lost) to the front large channels correct? I do have 2 subs and I am running one sub for the front and one for the rear channels. so i want to set the subwoofers...

    having a problem with my wega AGAIN!

    I would suggest you adjust for overscan, sounds like it is underscanning. OR- look at the horizontal postion, maybe your picture is merely off center

    Overscan settings: Can this be done?

    Oh by the way, the term window box You used, it would lead me to believe that i should have 2 lines on the side if they are indeed supposed to be borders correct? Then why do I only have a black border on the left side and a small one on the top, My HPOS on the wega, according to the avia disc...

    Overscan settings: Can this be done?

    So basically what your telling me is that because my Wega actually does not have some enormous amount of overscan(5%), like many cheaper tv's (with overscan of about 7-10%) like a teenagers old handme down tv per say a playstation would be in theory hooked up to, therefore, I am seeing (no pun...

    Overscan settings: Can this be done?

    Is it possible to set overscan independantly per input on a wega kv32fv300? If I set overscan with avia using video 4 on the set, it affects all inputs. I would like to set overscan independantly for video 2 for a PS2 that is causing underscan. Somebody please tell me this can be done and how to...

    having a problem with my wega AGAIN!

    Thank you John. It's a bit relieving to hear that I am not the only one with this problem, but nevertheless, I am still quite annoyed. I expected to have a full screen of gaming and not have these black underscan anamolies. WTF! I does not seem to affect many, b/c I searched all over to find...

    having a problem with my wega AGAIN!

    Thank you gregg for you prompt response. I looked at the menu options and there are non that correct my problem. These bars that I am seeing are on the sides and look exactly like symptoms of underscan. The amount of underscan varies with the game. This is very very strange.

    having a problem with my wega AGAIN!

    Hello all, My girldfriend bought me a play station 2 for Christmas and just hooked it up, using the weird supplied cable that is specifically made for the PS2. It has a composite video cable and two rca audio cables, (haven't purchased a S-Video cable for it yet)Anyway, after selecting an...

    Need help with Denon AVR-3300 Receiver

    Hey everyone, I took the advice from Polk Audio's web page on it's non-orthodox subwoofer setup for those of us who don't have an LFE bypass on their subs. I have two outboard stereo amps running the fronts and rears. The Denon receiver only powers the center channel. Now, in the receiver's...

    Can somebody please explain to me what BNR (Block Noise reduction) is?

    I would like to find out what this feature is on my 755V Dvd player. I don't seem to notice any difference with it on or off. If I don't see a difference, would it be best to shut it off? Thanks

    Jack Briggs and others, About my Wega.

    Well guys.... I am finaly satisfied with the picture of my Wega. I finaly found the YDC adjustment in the service menu, and the picture is excellent in ALL levels!!! My brightness is now at 44%, and those nasty gray bars when viewing som anamorphic material when using the sqeeze mode no blend...

    The "service technician" just came to see my wega and...

    yeah. its too late. But I realy dont think that this is a defective unit. It just seems not to be able to hold black level. I adjusted the SBRT in the service menu to 20, and now the user level brightness is less than half. It is the black level hold that is stumping me. Dark scenes, and ! You...

    The "service technician" just came to see my wega and...

    Jack, My contrast is set in the middle. My brightness is set to about 73% (47 out of 64 bars)And yes, I have calibrated the tv at night in total darkness. I used the black bars/half gray pattern, and followed the directions exactly. Right bar to be seen, left bar to be barely seen. By the way...

    Thank you Jack and others, You are all very kind. 1. Shadow Detail- I would like some. Everything is BLACK BLACK BLACK. I want to adjust the DC restoration to 0, But I don't have such a parameter, unless it is marked as something else. My brightness is @73% using Avia as my reference. 2...

    The "service technician" just came to see my wega and...

    Thanks guys. The second service technician came today, with a generator and he saw it too, but he really, honeslty thought that there was nothing to do about it, and that it really was not worth it to open up the set. Fine.... I will live with it. This purchase is supposed to bring me joy, not...

    Well, I'm not satisfied. Although I asid I wasnt going to call for service regarding my KV-32FV300's uneven brightness problem, I broke down and did. Anyway, the loud obnoxious service "technician" after fiddling with my black level, white level and all that through the user menu, as well as...

    The Classic Wega Uneven Brightness and SBRT "bandaid fix"

    Hey Guys, I did the SBRT (sub-brightness)adjustment in the service menu to try to fix the damn dark vertical stripes in dark scenes. Originaly the value was 14 and I reduced it to 9. This seemed to help. I recalibrated with avia to get my brightness back to proper level, and low and behold, it...

    Vega Uneven Brightness

    I have the same exact problem with my new KV32FV300. I have 2 wide dark strips when then display is all black. I also did the SBRT "fix" and agree 100% with Andy. There has got to be another way. I really don't want some idiot "tech" with minimal knowledge to come and violate my set. :angry:

    Avia and "Color Decoder Check"

    Hi everyone, Just ran the AVIA again after changing the contrast and brightness settings. I used the color decoder check on the disc and this is what I got. Red +5% Green -5% Blue 0% perfect. To correct this, I am assuming that I will have to adjust the drives and cuts of the guns. I have...

    Hello All. I'm new here, and I have a problem with my new wega's auto 16:9

    As far as I can recall, I have not played a DVD without having the TV glitch at least once with the auto squeeze feature. Can it be light dust on the disc? To shed some light on this issue, I called SONY, They gave me the number to a local service center. As I spoke to one of them we had a very...
