My main problem is the ringing I see around objects and text. I even see it around the input names that come up in the corner when I switch inputs.
Could you take a pic of the ringing? Would it show up in a pic? I know on my set, there was a slight miore (sp) effect that was greatly reduced when I calibrated for overscan. After I shrunk the vertical axis, this banding (what it looked like to me) went away.
I should note that after calibrating my set to AVIA, it looked like there was too much color and peoples faces were to warm. But on the advice of AVIA, i left it like that for a week, and now I realize that it is a much more accurate picture. I was used to the cool setting on my old tv with color set kinda low, so the shock factor of having more color to a while to settle in. Since then, DVD's look much more like they did in the theater.
