    Set the contrast and brightness in the 45-50 range and you shouldn't have too many problems.

    If you must watch 4:3 material as 4:3 then i make sure that i switch between the formats in the adverts of every 1/2 hour or so, else use "superlive". <br />With regard to screen logos, most that appear "washed out" should be fine, again if it is a solid logo i switch between the picture formats periodically to move the logo about.

    Happy watching, the tosh wh08 set are great. <img src="wink.gif" border="0">
