If the post was really that important, Admin would "sticky" it to the top. There is no need to respond to the thread just to bump it up. Or are you waiting for an answer to a question? Oh, you didn't ask a question... Why would anyone need to respond?
Yet instead of bumping the thread up yourself asking for responses you start a new thread complaining that nobody responded to your other thread. This belongs in that thread and should not waste space on the AVS DV board.
Hob, you mentioned making your own calibration, and I was wondering if you made any changes on your overscan. I got my F38310 very close to the same time you got yours (same JX5, date, etc.). Mine came with 2% overscan at all 4 edges, which does reveal some edge compression ("barrel roll" effect). I complained about this on a related thread, and you responded that some of us must be looking at the screen with binoculars.
This was right on target because before long I hardly noticed that anymore. I found out later that 2% top & bottom is nice in that it almost exactly displays the entire height of 1.85 AR ("Academy standard") films.
I realize you can increase the overscan to 4-5% and get rid of most of the edge compression, but personally I don't want to give up that much of the image. What are your thoughts about this? BTW, check your PMs as I sent you one this morning.
