I used a Samsung SIR-T165 with DVI out with XBR910 for 6 mos and found that the Sony was not really set up well for DVI. Component looked better on that set from the Samsung. Black levels were all wrong and I had no adjustability for gamma on the Samsung. I tried to set up HTPC on the Sony but it had >6% overscan and this cut off a significant part of the desktop (half the start menu, desktop icons, etc) and I could never find settings for PowerStrip that would let me see the whole desktop. The scan rates on the Sony are pretty picky so you don't have much flexibility in PowerStrip. I was never brave enough to go into the Sony service menu and adjust the overscan to solve the problem, but I think this might be the only way to make it work as HTPC monitor.
