    Just wanted to post a note of thanks to everyone for your help. I bought mine based on several reviews but most notably from Phil I and Marks. Thanks guys. I'll let you know how it goes.

    Oh, I almost forgot.
    I was able to make a decision because of the great advice on this list.
    I would have surely spent alot more, bought a 16:9 that would've been too small, in short, Thanks to everyone.
    My report comming soon.

    It came around 12 noon. Of course I was anxious about it arriving and looking out the window every 30 minutes to see if the delivery truck was pulling in the driveway. Anyway the guys got it in the house and hooked up the tv antenna to do the 9 point convergence. It looks very good out of the box. I was worried about it looking terrible at first but I have no more worries. I turned down the contrast and brightness and put in Toy Story 2. Nothing came up except the off-the-air station that was currently on. "Doh" Finally figured out that I had to press the Video button on the remote to give me different options for the input. In this case for Colorstream HD1. Anyway the picture looked great! I felt like I could reach out and touch Buzz. My wife loved the picture but we had to move the couch back to about 9 feet away. My sister came over and saw it and decided that her and her husband are going to have to get one.
    I am going to buy either the Avia disc or Video Essentials. And I plan on doing the 56 point convergence later down the road. But anyway I love it! Can't wait to get off work tonight and watch some more movies.

    Thank you Phil for the numbers....I'll try those settings and see what happens. Are your settings done with your lights on or off or what?
