    I am expecting deliver of my 57h81 early next week, and of course i'll want to do some convergence tweaking of my own before i get it ISF'd. Supposedely, the set has "digital convergence".
    My question is this - on my old Toshiba 40" 16:9 tv, i did my tweaking by using the service menu to access the "grid" of white lines, then moving the cursor around to all 64 points (or whatever) and making sure the blue/green/red lines "converged".
    Will i converge my new set the same way, or is Digital Convergence something different?
    Thanks!

    Digital convergence refers to a new automatic convergence system. Using optical sensors behind the screen, the set can now adjust convergence on its own.
    From what I understand, the service mode convergence is still available, if you find the set does not do a good job.

    Steve,
    I checked out the 50H81 at BB. In addition to the auto-convergence it has single and 9 point convergence in the user menu. I have seen posts here stating the 64 point is still available in the service menu.

    I prefer not to push the subwoofers until they're properly run in.
