    Grids for most Toshiba's can be ordered from the following print shop (as recommended on the boards over at hometheaterspot.com):
    AEC Print Shop
    201 Center Park Drive
    Suite 1150
    Knoxville, TN 37922
    Phone: 865-966-9600
    Fax: 865-966-7216

    Ask for Lisa when you call. I recently got the 50H81 grid for $48 and it worked out very well for me.

    One of the problems w/using a grid w/line spacing as derived from the service manual is that your stuck w/5% overscan even though you can do better.

    Does this print shop make grids to custom specs?

    That is where I got my convergence grid for my 50HX81,but I am sure that they can do custom grids, but you must give them a print out of what you want or something like that. Just ask Lisa what program they use for there print shop and I am sure they would be more than happy to assist you.

    This might be a dumb question, but are there different grids for the different stretch modes? That is, would you actually have to create one grid for Full, and one each for TW1, TW2, and TW3?

    Yeah, I have the earlier model, the 56H80, so I guess I would fall into this category for having to do each mode (and so having to have a separate grid for each of them [​IMG]).
    By the way, what are these grids made out of?

    "The grids are created on Mylar material using an HP 5000 plotter that is accurate to 0.2% over the total plot area." - straight from the sheet that came with my grid!
