    Panasonic TX28PS1, 4 days old.
    TXH setup DVD.

    On the bottom left of the pic the white bar has a red bar next to it (is this convergence)?
    Looked at various other TV's yesterday evening (with whatever was on in the shop) and they all looked the same (although not to the same extent).
    Should the set go back? Should I get another of the same set or just give up and keep this one?

    Cheers

    Few CRT TVs have totally perfect convergence, however if this problem irritates you to the point where it would ruin your normal viewing take it back ASAP and get it swapped and try your luck with another.

    I have had a Philips 36pw9618 since the 10th and have a similar result to you with the THX test.
    Looks good through the centre but 3 corners have some mild convergence problems and one is a lot worse, mainly red visible on the white lines.
    I assume the dots are meant to be circular as well however mine tend to flatten and elongate as you get to the edges.
    To be honest I cannot see any problem when viewing dvd's etc so am not too concerned about it.

    To throw in my own question is it possible to adjust this kind of error?
    Don't see a need to return the TV but I was considering asking an engineer to come out to tweek things.
