I use Bright and Low temp as well. I found the reds in Natural to be a little too washed out for my taste, and the whites a little too yellow. But at Bright I did knock the reds and greens back a few notches in Perfect Color. 28, I think (I don't use the TV remote much and it is waaaay over there right now). Mits suggests Natural/Low as closest to the D65 standard, but at least one guy with a colorimeter on another thread reported Natural/Low as 5800k (I think I remember that was what he reported) instead of 6500k, and Bright/Low as closer (but somewhat high) on an absolute basis to D65.

Make sure that when you changed to Bright you didn't also change the color temp from Low to High. All the settings are stored by Picture Mode (Brilliant/Bright/Natural), so when you change Picture Mode you're liable to change other stuff too and possibly not notice it immediately.

I got my WD 65737 and standard def looks like poop. Bad pixelization, jaggies, halos, you name it. I found some good user settings here and used those but it still doesn't look very good. I watched a DVD and still it looked lousy. I have a Denon DVD 1600 progressive scan DVD player running it through my HK AVR 254 with 1080P upconverting. Anyone have any ideas? I'll have to borrow a friends blu-ray to check out how 1080P looks. My DVD's looked 10X better on my old CRT, what gives?

How long have you had the TV? It took mine 2 weeks for the bulb to burn in enough to get colors and darks looking better.

So, you're saying there's a chance?

The colors are fine. It's the detail that sucks. My CRT looked 10X better than this.

okay, the question still stands. How long have you had the TV? Football, golf, SD, HD, everything started looking better at about the 10-14 day mark on mine. And I upgraded from a 53" CRT to the 73" mitsu and the mitsu looks GREAT now.

So, you're saying there's a chance?

It's brand new. Is it common to look this way out of the box? I just thought the lamp dimming over time was the only real difference you'd see.

I asked this before but will ask it again. I thought I saw a thread for these sets specific for calibration settings, but now I can't find it. Does anyone know where the thread is?

If the impedance has a high mismatch you may need to turn up the volume on your PC pretty high to overcome the resistance.

The lamp has a burn-in period, generally people say around the 300 hours mark, where it 'warms up' and the PQ improves.

Later on in the bulb life it will start to dim or fade until it goes out completely.

So, you're saying there's a chance?

I doubt it's the length. You've got me scratching my head now. I don't know what the problem could be.

Not a specific thread. But scattered throughout this thread there are settings a lot of these guys put on their sets. You just have to dig for them.

Your CRT? What, 32" 4:3? That's like 1/4 the size in sq inches of screen real estate for the same resolution. If watching SD is what you primarily want to do, stay with that 32".

No, I want to watch high def. But you would think standard def would at least look ok. That is one of the main reasons I chose DLP is because so many people said that standard def looked pretty good on this set. Most of the content out there is still standard def, as well as the re-runs so I just want it to look good along with the HD programming.

Why do you need an IR blaster for the TV? Aren't you sitting in front of it when you operate it? If you are using an R/F remote system or something they usually have a blaster than can be set across the room instead of the little stick on units. That may be an option for you.

I need a blaster because of the AV stuff that gets turned on and off. My girlfriend is not good with this kind of stuff this option works perfect on the old TV. I can't put it on the other side of the room

I guess you could take the screen off and carefully run the wire inside. Or try putting the emitter on one of the corners of the screen where it may not be to obstructive.

I think its slightly to the right of the middle at the bottom near the Mitsu logo. I tried to put my center channel there and it wouldn't take any remote commands. You could also try shining a flashlight on the front, you might be able to find it that way.

I'm hitting Menu, 2 4 7 0 on my 73737 to see the total hours of use. Except, it just says total hours of use: 0. Am I doing this wrong or something? How do I figure out the time on the lamp? Do I have to hit initialize?

Also: If I hit Menu 3 5 6 4 to see the error codes listing, which also show time of use: it says - '0'

Is the because I haven't gotten 50 hours on the set yet?

Hi all. I'm still working my way through this thread....made it to August so far!

Thanks to all the posters here, I decided I will be purchasing either the 73C9 or the 73737 sometime in the nest couple of days. Tiger Direct seems to have a good price on the 73C9. Does anyone have any experience good or bad with Tiger? Rumors welcome and appreciated

What wind across these embers softly breathes.
