    My fiance & I are moving in together and thru some good luck (her ex worked at Circuit City) she actually owns a 57" Hitachi Widescreen set.

    Other than what I read in the manual, I am basically clueless about this set. I have a couple general questions.

    First off, it has virtual HD which I believe means everything is displayed in either 540p or 1080i. Frankly, I'm not sure I like this - doesn't this mean my 480p DVD player is being upconverted? I don't think the pic is as good on dvd as my Sony 61HS10. Is there any way I can get the set just to display 480p with no upconversion?

    Also, can this set support a heavy center channel speaker? It seems very well supported, but I want to make sure my center won't cause the TV to sag in the middle.

    Thanks for any information, or links to sites with tips on this set!

    The Hitachi upconverts everything to 540P ... there is no way to show anything native ...
