    Someone once emailed me how to go into the service menu so that I may do the Anamorphic squeeze on my JVC 32D201 TV. I use a Panasonic DVD CV51 interlaced player on my TV and I'd like to improve the image a bit. I notice the down-conversion artifacts like stair-stepping etc and getting rid of that would clean things up a bit.
    I think I can find the info on how to do the anamorphic squeeze by squeezing the vertical (AFTER setting the DVD output to 16:9). As I have been very seriously arned to do, I will remember to scroll through and record EVERYTHING before I bother to do any adjustments.
    I also watch NTSC cable, Laserdisc and VHS tapes on this TV. When I do this service menu thing, do I have to keep going into the serivce menu to do and undo the "anamorphic squeeze" each time??
    thanks for any info [​IMG]

    Yes, you have to enter the service menu each time to do and undo the squeeze. Only takes like 30 seconds to do once you get the hang of it. IMO, I would not leave in the "squeeze" mode since it would likely cause screen burn-in if left for a long time. How long is long? I don't know, but it's something that I don't want to find out.

    Great TV!

    Do a search of this form for my name (Michael_V) or JVC D-series to find detailed instructions regarding the service menu and squeeze trick.

    Enjoy!

    Cool. Thanks. Dang it. I'm going to really want an HDTV pretty soon now that I have to do that every time I watch a DVD!
