    Any possibility I could have that ftp address for the 42pw23p; just bought one and am eager to fiddle with it!

    I know of at least three people who have messed this RP up by fiddling with the service codes.:rolleyes:

    Simon, what is wrong with your set? Unless you know what's wrong, and what setting will fix it I would leave service menu alone.

    Unless you're converging the tubes. In which case read and re-read this very carefully...

    I need to drop the horizontal screen position by a couple of notches and will tweak the convergence. I have fiddled with TV's before and had no problems, my last was a Hitachi 28" which had TERRIBLE geometry; search for C28WF530N and you will find some amateurs commenting on good geometry! This set looks fairly good; bit dodgy down the right hand side but not overly distracting. What do you lot think?

    You can only alter the horizontal positioning (By which I mean moving it up and down) with the "cinema" and "subtitle" screen modes and not with 16:9 + 4:3 et al.
