One of the main reasons I installed Duvetyne inside my Hitachi 51F500 was what I noticed when I watched the opening chapter of The Matrix for the first time in the dark. As the green cursor flashes on the top-left of the screen and then moves across to the right, there was a very noticeable green reflection in the center of the screen. I figured that if I can see that much of a problem in this instance, then it must be causing other problems that I just can't detect as easily. I covered the entire inside with the Duve and reported yesterday that the green reflection on The Matrix was gone, but I hadn't yet had an opportunity to view at night. When I did, I saw that it was greatly reduced but still visible. The Duve has made a very noticeable difference in the black levels and reducing some of the other noticeable effects of the shiny uncovered CRT well, but I'm wondering why the problem wasn't fixed completely? Is it because I just attached the Duve across the top of the lenses and didn't build the "lens hood" that extends upward to block the lenses on the top from shining directly into the screen? Or is this just a normal RPTV issue when you have a single focused color spot on the very top of a black screen?
