I'm going to call the store where I bought my 32PW9616 and negotiate for an 'upgrade' to a 32PW9617 since my 32PW9616 has issues. However, I'm wondering if I should have the set modified right away to remove SVM. It is extremely annoying on the 32PW9616 and makes the set have lesser picture quality than my mother's old Sanyo. I won't put up with that any longer, and the new set has to follow my rule, for I am its god. Now some people are under the impression that double outlines along edges are a sign of sharpness. I am not under that impression since up until last year, I had an excellent pre-SVM Philips RPTV whose picture quality the 32PW9616 doesn't come close to. So my question for you is; does the 32PW9617 have any significant SVM artifacts?
