I'm so happy with so many other qualities of this set, that I'm going to live with it.

I'm way behind on this conversation, but the tech who just visited me said that, by law, a company must provide tv parts for repairs up to 7 years form the manufacture date. That's good news. I plan to extend my warranty to total 7 years soon.

Hi, I plan to buy a house in hopefully six months. If the 970 gets calibrated now, when I move will I have to get it calibrated again? I do not like to waste money. The bumpy ride concerns me. Also, do any of you know anyone who can calibrate the 970 for me? I live in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Hoo boy...upon further review, Inputs 1-3 are all gone. That includes my S-video, so no Dreamcast fun until it's fixed. Video will flash for a split second upon startup, then dead. Looks like a fuse or transistor popped.
Based on my service manual, it appears something on the UZ board (the A/V input switch board) took a dump. Maybe IC1502. The whole board looks to run around $50, which might be the smart thing to do considering I don't solder.

I finally got a PS3 and hooked it up with an HDMI cable to input 6. Since the HDMI cable transfers video AND audio, I was wondering what the extra RCA inputs for L and R are for on this set.
