    Not sure this is the right forum for this, but since it pertains to my new display... After having a Vizio M50-D0 for about 10 days and deciding I couldn't stand the judder of 60hz and realizing I wasn't yet ready for 4K (it made DVDs literally look like VHS), I traded it in for a 1080P LED set. I got a Sony KDL60W630B/2 that RTNGS spoke fairly high of. Everything looks fine, except when playing the new restored blu-ray of Frankenstein I noticed blue fringing sometimes around dark objects in fast movement. It almost looks like an old style blue screen matte line, where the matted in object didn't quite line up in the optical printer. Kinda distracting. Does anybody know any way to deal with this, i.e. eliminate it? This certainly isn't a top-of-the line TV, but coming from a 36" HD flat screen CRT, it's a step up for me.

    Oh, I've just done a basic calibration using this page: http://www.tweaktv.com/tweak-my-tv/calibration-guide/sony-kdl48w600b-copy.html Hope to go more in depth the next couple days.
