New 970 owner, a few questions.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've had my 970 for 2 days now, and I love it! Discovery channel in HD looks amazing, better than any other set I've seen!

Now, for the questions.

When I initially turned on the TV for the first time, I set up the tilt correction etc, but, each time I continue to turn my TV on, it prompts me to do this every time. Am I not saving these settings correctly?

What does Auto Wide actually do? Will it automatically widden a 4:3 image with whatever my prefered zoom function is? The manual really doesn't give a good description on this.

Set Mode Memory to ON. Auto Wide gives you option on how to stretch a 4:3 image or you can
set it to off.

I think you have to go through the whole setup process, including letting it do a channel scan, before it saves those settings. Are you exiting the menu before it scans for OTA channels?

I'm not sure what auto wide does. I think it might automatically play 16:9 480i/480p content (like an anamorphic DVD) in "full" mode instead of letterboxed. That's just a guess, tho...

No, I wasn't doing a scan, because I didn't see the point, with me using the HDMI input for the cable box. I'll do the scan next time I turn it on I guess, or look for that memory mode setting.
