    I have two red-push attenuators available (one is by Yerringto, not sure about the other anymore). I recently got an ISF calibration done by Gregg Loewen of Lion Audio-Video Consultants (fantastic job, by the way), and don't need them for my Mits WS-65819 anymore. I'd be glad to send them to someone who does need them. No charge, of course. Private mail me if you want one or both.

    Are these only for use on the mitsu?

    Not necessarily, but I know the Mits (including mine, before Gregg's excellent calibration) have the red push problem. I really don't know if other brands have the same issue or if the attenuators are "manufactured" with a Mits set in mind. They just plug into the component jack, between the tv and the source.

    I had a red push with my Panasonic TV, and have since bought a Sony, I do not notice a distinct red push, however some Sony models have a rep for exaggerated color.

    Are these equivalent to the Radio Shack pots that can be installed on the Red component cable, or are these something more sophisticated?

    I have those on both component inputs to my Pioneer 533, and they work well to address the slight red push that I have on the set (not-ISF'd at this point).
