Hi Guy. I've used Avia on a number of TVs over the years with good results, but I noticed something odd with my new Sony 32FV27. On the Needle Pulse with Steps display I can't get either the black lines to bend, or make the white bars disappear (indicating White Clipping). It seems even with the Picture control max'ed out I can't even really tell if there is blooming on the white box in the step pattern. I made sure VSM is set to OFF before starting. Is it possible that Sony got smart and now max'ing out Picture does not cause blooming? It got to where I kept the control up toward the max for several seconds, trying in vain to find one indication that I needed to back down. In theory, would I have seen the White Bars disappear before seeing blooming in the top box? Which happens first? I wound up setting it to about 70% on the scale, only because I have it ingrained in my head that it's a bad thing to have it set to 100%.
