This will help some people at least. I had no idea there...

I didn't see a link to cprawks' calibrations in the first posts. I'll have to grab them for my P60. Thanks for the heads up.

Yup, it cycles 1080i, 1080p, 480p, 720p. 480p gives me 4x3. Simple enough to adjust based on what I'm watching. Better than dual wiring.

I ran into the same issue. Although I got the E for my mom, I bought the 2014 P-series (which are still available in some places). All the 2014 sets have the center pedestal type base.

Oh! Duh. "Clipping Test" confused me. Brightness and contrast tests, that I have a handle on.
