Thanks for the info, for a minute i thought you got a good one.
That`s a real shame , the TV sound like a realy nice set. It could be that you just ended up with a bad batch. I would def, try again.
Like I said , I`m looking at this set , but also wait to see the XS 30" as that would be a better size where it`s going. I think the only dif. between the two is PIP (pop) and Ch. indexing and freeze. It realy is bad for Sony , all yours came from CC right ?
They just came out with it maybe there is a "first batch" glich (lets hope).
Anyway , best of luck , and let us know how you make out , thanks.
