    Joe,
    I've had an HW40 for over a month now and love it. I hope you enjoy your new set.
    Be sure to let us know how you like it.

    Steve,
    Yes I'm looking forward to playing with it. Today I bought the avia test disc. But before i use it I think I should proably bring all my settings way down. Any recomendations on where I should have the settings?

    Joe,
    The Sony has 4 picture modes-- Vivid, Standard, Movie, and Pro. All picture parameters can be changed and saved for each mode. SVM is preset and not adjustable, and has 3 levels-highest in Vivid, medium in Standard, low in Movie, and off in Pro. It can be turned off for all modes in the service menu, no need to cut any wires.
    For starters, just put it in Pro mode--factory default contrast and brightness are pretty reasonable in Pro, and it's safe to leave it there until you get around to calibrating with AVIA.
    I stored fairly low (about 30%) contrast level for PRO, for watching dvd and HD in a dimly lit room, and progressively brighter settings under other modes for use in increasingly bright lighting. None of my contrast settings is over 50%, however.
