    I'm looking forward to the day when I can buy a widescreen TV, but when that happens I'll probably need to have my main speakers close to the set. Are rear projection sets affected by magnetic interference?

    Hi Chris,
    Probably best to have shielded speakers. You don't want to have to design your hometheater around the speakers. [​IMG]

    Thanks... but I already have the speakers, which I am not giving up. Are you saying that ALL TV types are affected by magnetic fields?

    TVs that don't use CRTs, like plasma, D-ILA and DLP won't be affected by magnets.
    Rear projection sets are affected, but not permanently like a direct-view set is. Ideally, what you want to do is adjust the geometry/convergence when the TV is in it's usual environment (with the speakers next to it).
    I should note that due to the placement of the CRTs within a projection TVs cabinet (in the middle), it's pretty unusual for the speakers to be a problem.

    Hi Chris,
    Hopefully, your speakers won't impact the image enough that you'd have to do service mode adjustments. [​IMG]
    If so, you can do that or do a degauss.
    You can also try fp since the crts will be on the ceiling and away from the speakers.
    Thanks,
    Errol
