    I last tweaked the TV when it was new around July/August 2005 with the help of a Home Theater DVD. How frequently should this be done for optimum performance. I have a Toshiba 57H83.

    Well, if you did it in Aug. 05, then you are already ahead of schedule [​IMG] Once I adjust, I don't usually check it again for about a year.

    Cliff, picture settings should remain the same. What you need to check is the set's convergence. (The CRTs will require periodic convergence.)

    Oh ya, convergence is a big thing. I do mine very often. The auto convergence on my tv hitachi 51F500 is crap. It really needs to be done manually. I ususally do it every couple of weeks, or just before I have people over to watch a movie. [​IMG] quick question, is is just CRT tvs that need convergence? is it a non-problem with DLP or LCD?

    Not a problem with either DLP or LCD -- the technologies are different.
