I have a Panasonic widescreen and although the geometry is pretty much vertically straight, the image still occasionally bends badly. I've noted that it tends to happen during bright scenes, such as strong daylight coming through the widow of a room. This cause's the image to pull (usually inwards) so that vertically straight objects appear to bend and twist. Another example would be lamp posts bending at the top if the scene is too bright. It's almost as if the higher level of contrast/brightness is knocking the vertical geometry out of line. Is there an explaination for this or an official wording of the problem ?. Is it something Panasonics are famous for or does it effect all crt sets ?. I had a philips and a sharp set before my panny and I never noticed the problem on either of those sets.
