Last month I bought a Toshiba 57H82 and a Panasonic SC-HT800V. Everthing is hooked up and DVD's look great with the Component video connection. I have yet to get cable so I can't testify to the HD picture but I am sure that will be great too. The TV has about 120 hours on it and I have done the 9-point convergance. Well now and my question is this..... Should I have it calibrated professionally? And, what tips can you give a guy on justifying the cash to the wife.....hahahaaa!
