I have had this issue since I got the TV. Everything works fine except this one thing that annoys me. When I am watching a Widescreen DVD connecting through the Y/G/B input, the top of the picture looks like it is bowed down just a little bit. Not a lot, just barely enough to notice. The picture looks like the following: It's almost like the black bar at the top pushes down into the picture a little bit. Any thoughts?

Which TV?


Which DVD player?


Double check to make sure that your DVD player is configured for your screen shape. If you have a TV screen that has a 16x9 ratio the DVD player will have a setting for that. If your TV screen has a 4x3 ratio then your DVD player will have a setting for that. If you have your DVD player set for a 4x3 screen when you actually have a 16x9 screen funny things will happen.

I'm not familiar with your TV. It sounds like a "geometry" problem.


You need to attract some CRT based RPTV owners. Try a new thread and add your TV to the title.


Almost all wide screen RPTV sets will curve in a little on the sides when 4x3 material is displayed with side bars. It's a characteristic of the lens setup and the short distance to the screen. I don't know if there are adjustments for "geometry" in other sets. My DLP set does not have any.

Do the lines near the top of the convergence grid bow in as well? If they do then you have a geometry issue. It is fixable by you if it's not to bad. I however am unfamiliar with your set. If the lines are bowed in your convergence grid, then do as htwaits suggested and start a new thread titled something like" Geometry issue on Phillips CRT ".

Might try this older Philips HDTV group or a newer one . A thread search there might turn up similar problems. The service CDROM for my Philips 64PH9905 (year-2000 64" model) doesn't show any tweaks specifically for line bowing, but has a few VERT, HORIZ service adjustments, not outlined, that might be related. Sometimes, with persistence, navigating Philips' customer service and national service setup can bring results (see your manual). They have a department, mainly for techs and charging by the minute for unregistered servicers, that offers technical advice. A slim possibility is tweaking some of the user HORIZ adjustments I find on one of my user (not service) submenus. Your model may not have them. Suggest checking with a test-DVD crosshatch, or other source, to ensure it's the same problem. Also, of course, try a 480p DVD input, if possible, to the HD YPbPr. My Philips accepts 480i to a special DVD YPbPb input, but not 480p; that doubles images on a split screen since the set tries a double an already doubled image. My set won't accept 480i into the HD YPbPr inputs; horizontal sync is lost completely. -- John
