    ok well i got the Sony Wega 27"


    and i was wondering what everybody sets VM(velocity Modulation) to.

    ive done everything on the AVIA dvd but now noticed that this changes the sharpness alot.



    btw thanks for all the help w/ helping me choose a TV
    and also i got the 5 year $60 warranty plan through BB.

    Turn the SVM OFF!

    You may want to revisit the calibration in about a week or so after the TV has had time to "break-in." The sharpness should be less than what you were used to, but this will actually reveal more detail. Setting the sharpness too high introduces artifacts.

    Enjoy the new set!

    The easy answer is to set it the way you think it looks the best! If everything else is set through AVIA, trust your eye on the VM. I'd typically turn that off, though, or to the lowest setting available.

    Sounds like the plan. If you don't mind me asking, what was the exact model number?

    SVM off, off, off.

    But I think you can go ahead and recalibrate now. The "break-in" issue is thorny, but I don't see how it really applies to direct-view sets. RPTVs, however, are a different animal altogether.
