    hi,
    my toshiba 40h80 is being delivered on tuesday and i am absolutely confused about the set-up. could someone please tell me what the best setting is for the following:
    -cable tv (i would like to fill the whole screen)
    -progressive scan dvd (black bars ok but i want the absolute best picture quality)
    oh, are there different settings required depending on the aspect ratio of the dvd or if it is anamorphic to get the absolute best possible pic?
    thanks!

    The 40H80 has different stretching algorithms to fill the screen. I almost always use the FULL mode to watch cable, although others may prefer to use TW1, TW2, or TW3.
    As for anamorphic DVD, use FULL. For non-anomorphic, I sometimes use TW2.
    To get the best picture quality, you'll first need to make sure that you do the 64 point convergence (actually less points, but you know what I mean). There are also a whole bunch of other tweaks that you can do to get better quality. e.g. Mechanical/Electrical Focus, The H-TLV manuever, if your brave, and finally grayscale calibration.

    First off, as soon as you turn the set on, lower all the settings to below 50. Contrast,brightness,sharpness,etc. I wouldn't fool around with anything else until it burns in. 100 hours would be a good burn in time.

    Don't you mean break-in, William? Break-in = Good. Burn-in = Bad, very bad. [​IMG]
