I have the IC chips to replace in it, but I won't get to that until the Spring sometime.

Nice.. I'm still looking out for a 960.. I love my 910, but I still want the 960.. Just think, the more 3D TV's get popular, more & more people will sell their HD CRT really cheap.. The person I bought the 910 from replace it with a 50inch Plasma..

What is the advantage of the 960 over the 910?

Better yoke & focus.. PQ improvements. HDMI.. & the ability to save changes you make on different sources.. Sharpness, picture, etc.. & a few more upgrades & functions.. Even though I have a 910, I'm still looking for a 960.

I thought the 910 and 960 had the same tube and assumed that PQ, sharpness etc. would be the same.

They are both SFP:

I think it's things like firewire, HDMI versus DVI, cable card and maybe some of the picture controls and software

My parents still have the KV-36FS210 I bought in 2002. They are still clinging to their HR10-250 Directv tivo, so they watch a lot of SD in their livingroom. (They have a theater room in their basement.)

It actually makes directv sd look passable.

I read that Sony made some PQ improvements.. More natural colors.. Better focus & sharpness.. & supports HDMI.. The 910 supports DVI only.
