    I have a Philips 24pw6006 tv which has slight bowing of horizontal lines when watching in widescreen. The service menu does not have any adjustment for this. It is particularily noticeable when watching films with bars at top and bottom. Any ideas please. Do all widescreen TVs have slight geometry bends?

    All large direct view CRTs are somewhat prone to this. And there is usually little that can be done. The amount will vary from one example (even of the same model) to another - it is a matter of production tolerances.

    One reason why I don't subscribe to the blanket view, expressed by some, that 'CRTs are best'. In some respects, they are. In others, such as this, LCD and Plasma are superior,
