    I just purchased a SONY KP-51HW40 yesterday at goodguys and I also got a monster video 3 component ($89.99) and a monster optical toslink ref ($99.99) total $2069 plus tax.

    They didn't have it in stock and they'll deli this Saturday. This's my 1st BIG tv ever, and I've read some threads about TV in this forum. I'm wondering what's AVIA??? AVIA calibrate??? where can I get it from????

    I'm so new to this, I don't know what to do 1st when I get it. Do I need to do AVIA stuffs or something else first before I enjoy it????

    Thanks for your answers

    Binh, to follow-up on what Doug said: The Sonys have several picture modes - Vivid, Movie, Pro (there is one other I can't remember now). You should ALWAYS use Pro mode. This mode has the SVM (artificial "sharpening" circuitry) turned off. It also has the Brightness, Contrast, etc. set at 50%, which is a good starting point, although you'll probably want to turn them down even more. After using AVIA I have Brightness & Contrast at about 30%.
