I've owned LCDs since early 2006 and have stuck with those but after much research I've realized that there are a million and one methods out there...
By the way how is the TV holding up... Has the PQ gotten better since your first started using it?
Boy, my original post sounds kinda testy. My apologies to all.
Bohemio-I guess what I did was to sift thru a lot of what I read on here and decided that most of it was unnecessary over-kill. I say this with no disrespect to anyone. So, if you read my original thread on all of this, you will see my thought process. Bottom line: I just watched the damn thing and dialed it into my liking. The only thing I did keep an eye on was any static logos and didn't watch stuff with those for more than maybe a half hour or so. I also kept an eye on hours of usage (you can look thru here to see where to find that in the Menus) just to get an idea of approx when I wouldn't have to think about break in anymore. Pretty simple really.
And, I've been very happy with the set. Its tons more lifelike in my family room than two high end LCDs were.
Good luck and let me know how you fare.
