jasonmichaelh, I am investigating an issue common to all 2011 WD-73640 DLP (tested so far), and possibly common to all 2011 DLPs, and possibly common to all 2011 Lasevue's. The following test will tell us.
Since you have a PC connected to your TV, will you please run this simple test:
0. Turn off all sharpening on the TV.
1. Bring up an image I provide.
2. Change it's colors using your graphics card's color correction controls.
3. Observe facial features go sharp when green, blue, or purple, but blurred when normal skin tone.
With more detail:
0. Turn off all sharpening on the TV. (No other TV setting matters.)
1. Bring up the image I provide at this avsforums post: (be sure to download the full size, 1800x1000 pixel image)http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...3#post21503863
2. Using your PC's Hue control, rotate the colors around, so that faces turn to green, blue, purple and back to skin tone. Detailed instructions for an NVIDA card are demonstrated in the video here. I can also help with an ATI card.http://www.showmeamemory.com/Other/B...1060333_FDk7tz
3. Watch for blurring / gross change in sharpness as color output to the TV change. Watch also for horrendous artifacts in the image wherever reds are nears white and blacks, such as the pajamas, the brick wall, and the youtube logo.
For everyone, the above video shows this.
For anyone who wants to test themselves, without having to rotate colors themselves, simply play the 2nd video in that gallery, "Full HD" size, full screen. Other sizes will also demonstrate the defect.
Remember, the defects observed are not in the source.
There is plenty to read about it in the linked video gallery, but questions are welcome by all.
Thank you immensely.

It does look very good when used as a pc display which I do frequently. Of course I've been using dlp for this function since 2008 and might be conditioned to it.
