    This will be my first post so bear with me here. Tomorrow I

    am having delivered a 36" SONY XBR450 and just got a SONY

    NS700P DVD player. I was sent a PANNY CT-36HX41 in error.

    Nice tv, picture a bit soft.In anticipation, how does the

    SONY compare w/DVD, satellite, and of course,the XBOX? Should I upgrade the NS700P also? Thanks for being patient

    and actually reading this. Please give me any opinions.

    Welcome to the HTF, Lance. The XBR is a very nice set and you should be very happy with it. You will notice less artifacts when watching satellite compared to the Panny because of its better line doubling circuitry--not a huge difference, but a difference none the less.

    The 700p is a good player in its price range and has garnered some good reviews. Since Sony has dropped the price, it is even a better value.

    Enjoy your set-up and your time here on the HTF.

    Hi Lance.

    Keep in mind that many TV's have the brightness and contrast set artifically high so the unit will "stand out" on a showroom floor. This is usually too bright/artifical for your home. You can adjust this manually, or purchase one of: Video Essential, Avia DVD's. These disks take you through interactive adjustment of brightness, contrast, sharpness, focus, etc., and contain many test patterns. A lot of people swear by the Avia disk. Many video stores also rent these if you dont want to pony up the ~$30.

    Have fun.
