Just curious on what settings you guys have for the vertical center, size, and tilt correction stuff.
What I have done is make the vertical size at the highest level (7 I think) while keeping the vertical center at zero. With this the images on the TV don't look so stretched out on wide zoom and basically this helps make the picture look like a normal picture would on a 4:3 TV.

So there is no solution to this dilemma? I guess I have the same problem but I only have a DVD player over HDMI and the built in tuner to worry about. I say I guess, because I'm afraid to even look.
So am I correct in assuming that the only way to deal with this is to compromise between the various inputs?

Some type of pattern makes it easier. If you just set to as little overscan as possible everywhere, it may not be right proportionally. I've noticed that the picture stretches a little horizontally as it moves out from the center of the screen, at least on my TV, so if everything is set to as little overscan as possible, the center is compressed horizontally. I used the THX circles and a ruler to get it right in all modes, it worked pretty good.

LOL guys wtf! after reading some posts i missed i was wondering why did you attack GlenC like that? You do know he is professional calibrator right? and has worked on these same TV's before? I admit though, i got into an argument with him early on ( only cause i wanted to know some calibrator secrets ) But what you guys said is just childish! I own a xbr970, (have so for the past few months) i know all about it and read up. Getting mad cause somebody says the TV isn't a High resolution display, then thinking that he means it's crap? This TV is cheap for a reason, (besides being discontinued, 960 was also discontinued ) you get what you paid for. It's not the "holy grail" of displays, otherwise i think more people would own one. The 960 still goes for a way higher price USED if you can find people who sell it LOL the 970 does not! Anybody who knows jack about TV's knows why. So you n00bs should do some research before thinking you scored a great HD TV at a small price. I know i got what i paid for! EDTV and nothing more.
