Actually an odd colour issue would be separate from edge enhancement. All TV manufacturers seem to give their TVs weird-looking colours to make them stand out from others, but that surprises me seeing as Sony sell their TVs on their colour.The other problem I had with the old V-series was one which I didn't fully understand at the time and only by reading this thread have I found the explanation. At the time I could only describe it as ‘MPEG exaggeration', coupled with an odd colour issue almost akin to a reduction in colour depth. I now understand these issues to be symptoms of the edge enhancement ‘feature' described earlier in this thread.
If you have a programmable remote this has been available for years. If you don't have a programmable one, but one that can learn remote codes, if you can find either a shop that will let you program and copy the IR code or a mate who has a suitable remote, then you can do this very easily. I've had this for at least the last six years!!Lyris said:Interesting, have they changed the remote? Maybe they'll give us Discreet Input Selection this time? The foreign models have that as part of the WEGA GATE menu, and having to cycle through inputs (even when nothing is plugged into them) is one of the few design faults I can find with the Sony LCDs.

Maybe you should start a thread in the amp section of the forums.wilddog said:Further to the above i would be interested in anyones opinions on the choice of amp relative to the Kef speakers and anything else of course.
I was asking the same question as you in September 2004. The Sony LCD I got back then was the first Sony A/V product I'd ever bought.Am I likley to be dissapointed, or do Sony generally get it right?
I think Sony got caught out with the shift to LCD, but if the new S series is anything to go by (and your V will be even better), you have nothing to worry about.keithoffice said:Am I likley to be dissapointed, or do Sony generally get it right?
I have just placed an order for the KDL-32V2000U and I am starting to wonder if I have been a little hasty. I was going to get the Philips 32PF9830 but preferred a newer model.
I am a bit worried that this may be a flop, I am worried about nothing?
Thanks in advance.
P.S This is my first LCD TV so probably going to be a huge difference over my current Sony CRT TV.
Ok i bought the original V40 and was totally dissapointed when i heard it wasnt getting VGA and the S series had.ohayo said:IMO,The update between new V and old V just a little..Still used same pannel ,same figure and just add 1 more Component input and 1 PC input, that's all..maybe add some new name of processing technology... If the old V wont discontinued on the midyear, if the price cheaper than new V around 300 pounds...i prefer the old V...
Hi there, the full story is i went into the Ruisilp sony shop in west london last sat. am with the intention of view the new 40" s series. unfortunately none were set up but they had 3 or 4 boxed which had only just been delivered and they had not had a chance to put one on display. i got into conversation and asked about the upcomming v series. they told me it was on their system and suggested if i put a deposit down the order would be recorded and i would stand a better chance of getting one of the first available. I gave them £50 deposit and have a receipt saying i owe £2,249, i did not think to discuss warranty at this point as it was agreed that whatever happens if i want i can hve the money back no questions asked.so99 said:wilddog- did you get any free warranty with your lcd and which sony store
