I agree. No offense to you retrace144, and we're certainly not trying to be rude, but 5 hours is not much time to reach a decision. There are many different adjustments you can use to battle glare and sunlight coming from the window, and since you have the 837 you also have Day/Night settings available for calibration. Have you already returned the set?

The PS3 is hooked up to a Yamaha RX-V663 receiver. I don't know if this is the receiver causing this as I have not tried connecting the PS3 directly to the TV.
Also, this may be normal because I haven't noticed it on smaller TVs, but I notice the black bars seem to have "teeth" along the edges like this:
Again, it's only noticeable when you go up close to it. I'm wondering if this is just normal to see this on larger TVs.
Your help is much appreciated.
When watching movies there is definitely some 'light', and faint images that ocassionaly get displayed in the upper letterbox bar. I previously described it as "leakage" too, but was informed it's actually just reflections from the mirror(s) inside the cabinet. It's not unique to these new models; it's been happening for years. Some folks have even opened their cabinets and lined them with material to block it from happening. But it doesn't happen all the time, and usually it's minor enough that it's not distracting (unless you're looking for it
However, I'm not sure if this is what you're seeing. The things I'm talking about are not constant. They are not always there. They only happen on ocassion, usually scenes when a bright spot (sun, spotlight, etc.) is near the edge of the viewing area, and giving the impression of spilling-over into the black bar. Is your green thing always there?
About the teeth on the edge of the bars... I've never noticed it, but that doesn't mean it isn't there. With a screen this size, everything is more noticeable, good AND bad. I will check my bars for teeth when I get home tonight.
