    Got my new 43 inch Sony T90 yesterday. I turned it on and afte 1/2 hour started calabrating and tuning it up. Look pretty darn good.

    Then last night after it had been on for 5 or 6 hours I noticed that it looked WAY WAY better then it did the previous 4 or 5 hours.

    My question is - is it me or did it actually need a warm up time to get all the pixels excited (or whatever).

    The picture looks "almost" as good as the movie I played. The night basketball games took much smoother then the early games when the set was still . . . .cold.

    Not sure but I experienced the same phenomenom with my new HDTV driect view. Just like you explained, it seemed better to me after a while (not just from night viewing either). Must be psycoligical?

    That is very normal with new RPTV's...You should let the set warm up at least a half hour before even doing any type of convergence....
