Mike, I've sent you a PM with the links to the pictures I posted
The Hitachi seemed pretty good out of the box... magic focus alone almost made my convergence grid perfect... the electronic focus seemed spot on.. so, maybe that is why I can't tell as significant a difference.

Guys - The overscan adjusement pots are self explanatory, but what does the "sky blue" button do?

Perhaps someone can start to search and organize all these old Hitachi tweaks threads and put them into a main index?

"Sad to say that RPTV out of the box quality is generally not very good."
But really, isn't openning the back and service panel overscan adjustments etc, a bit over-kill? I can probably achieve 90% just by the feel via simple sharpness, color, contrast asjustments. Whereas you would have to be obsessed a little to open the back up and adjust overscan. If there really is a problem, there is always the warranty. Let the technician get his hands dirty.
If Hitachi had meant for us to adjust this, then they would have placed the knobs for overscan OUTSIDE of the chassis and they would have provided a section in the manual for how to use it.
As for Hitachi in general, there's this nifty grid mode for color convergence adjustments, in addition to the normal color, contrast etc controls.
What more can you ask for?? I don't know about you but if the PQ out of the box is so crap as you generally imply, then how would Hitachi have any shred of a reputation for making excellent sets?? The average user expects nothing less that 80% PQ out of the box. Who wants to fuss around
