    i sent you an email but i think it was the wrong one.

    i finally have my set replaced from tweeter.

    i'll try to call you this week to find out when you will be able to be in my area.

    mits 73713.

    hd material looks fine but even after some dve work the dvd image looks very soft.
    i think there is a svm issue that is causing extreme EE on this set.

    tony.

    hi tony

    fricken A! that is a beautiful set. I just tricked out a WS-73711 yesterday (3 scan rates, duvetyne lining, glare screen removal, lense stripping). The client was extremely impressed.

    looking forward to doing yours,

    gregg

    Hmmm. Carolinas in March. Guess I'd better get things moving [​IMG] . I want to replace my 57" Pioneer WS analog set with something digital in the 61" - 65" range. I'm thinking I'll go (relatively) low end CRT for now until DLP gets bigger and cheaper. Suggestions appreciated.

    The Pioneer looked so good with just VE tweaking that I never worried about ISF help, but I don't expect to be that lucky again. So, if I get the replacement done before you are in this area, I'll likely be contacting you. Task one is to sell the analog set. My ad will start running Tuesday.

    dang...I'm in LA (San Pedro) and I'd have you do my set (Panny 47wx53) but it's less than a month old and has nowhere near enough hours on it.

    I will almost certainly reserve a spot on your April/May tour, however. [​IMG]

    I assume prices are as listed on the website, correct?

    Also, would the Duvetyne lining void/affect/invalidate my Circuity City ESP in any way?

    Hi guys

    My LA trip is now full, but Ill be back in the April - May time frame.

    Steve, you would have to ask CC whether or not my work would effect their warranty.

    Regards

    Not if you don't tell them about it... [​IMG]

    Seriously, chances are the guys won't know what it is, or think it's part of the set. They must see hundreds if not thousands of different TV types.

    Finally got that TV I mentioned I was thinking of getting in your computer trouble thread Gregg. A Mits 55313. It's not going to have enough hours for your Florida tour in February, but maybe the August tour or in early 2005 if you do a tour then (which one depnds on money in the bank).

    Hi Joe

    Congrats!!

    Your set only needs 100 hours on it (which is 4 days of viewing...yes Im good at math). Ill not be in Florida until Feb 22nd ish, so we are looking at another month. Lots of time??

    Feel free to call to discuss (207 778 5417)

    Regards

    Gregg
