    My Toshiba RPTV was delivered yesterday! My first big screen television! I tried my best to follow the primer and get everything setup for the initial warm-up of the CRTs. The factory contrast was set to 100 (ack!), so I lowered to down to a more conservative 30. Wow, what a difference from my little 27" RCA TV. The quality is like night and day!

    I purchased a progressive scan DVD player to add to the experience, and set up the following:
    -Output to 16:9
    -Dolby 5.1 out to receiver
    -DTS out to receiver
    -SVM off for the TV
    -3:2 pulldown enabled via Film in the TV

    The only question I was for pic size:
    Pic size is set to FULL for my attempt at correct anamorphic WS display (I thought it would be NATURAL, but that produced side bars even on Widescreen content). The description for FULL says, however, that the "picture is non-uniformly enlarged" which kind of worries me. Am I doing this correctly?

    Thanks for the info, Chris! I'll check out your links to make sure I'm doing everything right.

    To answer your question, I picked up the Sony DVP-NS715P for $149 at Best Buy. Cheaper than some, but great reviews.
