    Hello,

    Try (i)+mute buttons simultaneously.
    Don't expect a truckload of settings though! =)
    (If I remember correctly, the set stores separate geometry settings for each picture mode, which is useful....)

    Cheers,

    Does anybody know if there's any way of adjusting for the RGB shift ? On my set the RGB moves about 3/4" to the left and up a bit and I'd like to be able to set it up with minimal overscan and properly centred for all sources.

    do a search for the full topic posted months ago.

    NOTE ALL THE DEFAULT SETTINGS ON THE SERVICE MENU BEFORE YOU DO THIS!

    But basically for RGB shift:

    press (i) + mute. Press 4. Use arrows keys to cycle down to number 4 or 3 (hor...something). This is the horizontal alignment. If you adjust this the image will move sideways!

    Sorted

    :)

    I've notice that in RGB mode you can't alter the colour, brightness, sharpness etc. Does this happen on all TVs or just the WFT1?

    RGB is a direct feed of red, green and blue and can't be adjusted

    As Ian says, RGB images have the colours separated/quantified in a very exact way and so alterations aren't necessary.

    There's absolutely no reason why contrast/sharpness should be disabled though and my current JVC model is the first set I've had which has a 'fixed' setting for RGB (brightness can be adjusted, but that's it). My Philips 6005 allowed every extreme of contrast to be selected and I could set it close to maximum before any blooming occured (and the vibrancy of the image increased with the contrast). I could also change sharpness & NR in order to compensate for the variety of different sources/software used.

    My 14" Sharp portable and 28" Panasonic PL1 were equally versatile with RGB reproduction, with only the 'colour' setting being off-limits. I've tried changing the PAL presets in the service menu, but found that the new values were only applied to tuner/video material and I couldn't change the reproduction of DVD's in any way shape or form. So, aside from conventional brightness, I think you just get what you're given with JVC sets....

    Thanks for the reply but I knew that bit. What I wanted was a separate control (like on the user menu of my Sony portable) which moves RGB pictures onto the same place on the screen as non-RGB. The horizontal shift you describe moves all types of picture so now I have a perfectly centred picture in RGB but it's about 3/4" too far to the right with everything else.

    Anybody else?
