    I have found several sources by searching this board and hometheaterspot. I went to http://www.nbtelectronics.com/files/...a_overlays.htm and all they state for my 50HX81 is 50 widescreen..is this in TW1, Full, Normal, etc???
    Also, I can order the grid overlays from http://www.pacparts.com and use part number
    For 50" systems,
    PSOL5001 : 50" PJTV OVERLAY
    Anyone have any experience with these grids?
    Getting anxious to do the 56 point convergence because I have some slight bowing on top but I want it to dead accurate..

    Greg, you only have to converge one mode this year! Any mode will do.
    PSOL5001 is for a 50" 4:3 analog set. You definitely don't want that one!

    I'm also desparately looking for the grid overlay. If anyone knows where to get one please let me know. I would like to buy the official Toshiba grid or buy one from someone who makes it themselves if someone is doing that now. Thanks for the info JohnnyG, glad to see you posting at the HTF as I used to read your comments at that "other" spot [​IMG]

    I think you can just take the .pdf file to Kinko's and print it out.
    I don't know what it costs to do this, but I guess I'll find out when I try to do it soon! [​IMG]

    Cameron,
    Don't count on it. My local Kinko's only had the capability to print overheads in notepad size. I ended up making one myself by hand.
    I also contacted a local print shop that could do it to film for $78.
