    I'm having my Tosh 40H80 calibrated next week and am on the fence about whether or not to spend the extra $150 to have the set Duvetyne lined.

    Any comments/suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Greetings

    I've done this many times for clients at their insistence ... but I cannot tell the difference. 50% of the people I have met who have done this tell me they cannot see a difference ...

    The other 50% say they can ...

    Regards

    Duvetyne is a material used to diminish reflections off internal surfaces of an RPTV, which in theory makes the picture better because there is no light interfering with the projected image.

    Its only a $30 tweak for me. I ordered the cloth, and did it myself. It has minimized but not totally eliminated those halos when bright lights onto dark scenes come in.

    Hmmmm......

    So some see a difference and some don't. For those of you who see a difference, was that difference significant?

    If I wanted to do this myself, is it considered an easy project?

    Thanks for the input!
