Fair enough. The feeds were in BB via D* on Discovery HD. I only mention it as a comparative since the other displays did not exhibit this effect to the same extent. Pioneer and Panny did not have it at all.
I have seen some really nice pictures on the Philips and the all black gloss case on the 9731 looks very very sharp.
Glad to hear your 9630 is working well for you.
To Philips' credit, I was watching another Discovery HD show some time ago and they had an outdoor show shot in bright sun at an outdoor pool. A small child sitting in the water had on a bright and deep green cap. This was the greenest cap I have ever seen. I didn't think green could get that bright and deep green (you get my point).
I was watching and had adjusted a Pioneer Elite, a Panny 600u, an ISFed Samsung 73 series, and the Philips 9731. The green overdrove/distorted with bloom on all the other displays but not the Philips. On the Philips it just looked perfectly clear, very bright, very deep, and very green. I didn't think any color could look that saturated and still look perfectly clear and sharp. It was actually quite startling to see the difference this scene made on the various displays.
