Hello all and thanks in advance for any help you can offer. I bought the new Panny 53wx42 this Sunday and brought it home with the help of a friend. Did the convergence 1 and 2 and tweaked all the other adjustments to my eye. I turned the SVM off. Anyway, here are my questions: 1. It is pretty much unwatchable with the brightness turned below 38 or so, very dark.......Why? Is this a big problem? If I turn it and contrast down then I have too dark a picture as well as any shadows are pitch black. 2. I have the color down to 12 or so, very low I would think?? 3. It looks incredible with a DVD (after adjustments mentioned under 1 and 2 above). I have cable (non-digital). I have to adjust tint with every channel change it seems and some channels just look cruddy overall, others i can get it looking really good. I never noticed any of this with my 27"...well, other than some had a crisper appearence than others. Is this the TV or cable feed? Would digital cable fix it? 4. Would the AVia disc fix some of this?
