First, I'd like to thank all of you on HTF for all the help you've given me thusfar the past months in the decision-making process (and WHAT decisions that were made!) in building my hometheater. I've ended up with: Onkyo TX-SR600 Receiver JBL NSP1 JBL PB12 Subwoofer Panasonic RP56 DVD Player and - just delivered Fri. morning--> Toshiba 50H81 Widescreen Television. Now comes the follow-up questions While piecing all this together (6 mo. in the making), I was able to get a copy of Video Essentials that Suncoast Video had. I'm reasonably happy w/the calibration of the speakers, but I have some issues with the Toshiba. I understand about the break-in period, but I attempted to calibrate the set and here is what I show .. Contrast 30 Bright 48 Color 38 Tint 0 Sharpness 10 Does this sound reasonable? I know that every set is different, but get me in the ballpark please The picture is good, but just not as sharp(?)as I'm used to w/my 27"Sony. I did notice one thing. I'm currently watching T2:UE, and while the image looks fairly decent while watching from 9' away directly in front of it, when sitting in my recliner to the left of the sofa at about a 30 deg. angle, it looks FANTASTIC--FILM-LIKE! What needs to happen? I do need to say that there is plenty of glare while directly in front of the set that comes from a window behind the sofa. My wife will have to get new, darker curtains to cut the glare from that screen One more thing for now-could someone tell me for sure when to do the 56 pt. convergence on the set? Post a link showing how? I'm a little scared to do it, but I'll work up the courage:b Sorry for the length of this post and so many questions, but now the fun begins!! Many thanks in advance.
