Yours must be worse than mine then. I sometimes have to turn the dial a half inch or so before it kicks in. I'd say the manual controls have a bit of play in them, but if you're turning a whole bunch...

Mine, which was new, did that too. It's not always smooth sailing in either direction, but you tend to get used to it.

Though I will say, I liked having motorized controls with the VW60, and I'm...

I found it from your advice.

It appears I have to hit the "popup menu" button on my remote to get a drop down menu to select 0 and 100% IRE fields. Found that by trial and error.

Thanks!

I've not seen any streamed 4K HDR, only UHD discs.

The B6 has had me neglecting my 118" 1080p 7.1.4 Atmos projection system lately, and it's no slouch. The picture on the B6 is oh so sweet.
