    Hi,
    While Progressive scan DVD is simply stunning on this set, I am somewhat disappointed by the quality of Bell ExpressVu satellite (Canadian) quality. Some stations look OK while others are frankly lousy. Are there some user adjustments that can address this shortfall, or do I need a technician to mechanically adjust the set? Could the ghosting be a result of SVM or is it something else. I realize this problem has been mentioned before, but what has been done to rectify it. I certainly expect more from a $5,000.00 (CDN) television.

    Ken,
    Ghosting can be caused by SVM. On your Toshiba, SVM is off when you put the set in Movie mode. Also try turning sharpness down.

    I prefer not to push the subwoofers until they're properly run in.

    Also, try and get ur cable company to put in an amplifier to boost ur signal. Its free..but I think u gotta show them it looks lousy for them to install one.
