    It wears off after a week or two. Alcohol helps :)

    Which LCD did you buy?

    How and what do you have it connected to?

    I don't have an LCD screen (yet), I have a 42" plasma, but I was the same with that (connected to Sky+ and DVD). I do have a 27" Tosh LCD screen arriving from Pixmania next week.

    A very astute observation. I'm suffering the same malady. I've been intending to post my screen settings for my Sharp 45", as the default looks crap, but I keep wanting to tweak them. I'm hoping this tweaking disease will wane as well.

    I agree, wine helps.....

    I am yet to watch a film without the picture adjustment menu popping up at least once 'just to see if i can 'tweak' a bit more'!!

    I reckon my wife is going to hide the remote soon!! lol

    Nick, I've been an LCD owner for close to a year and I still do this - just less often!

    To be fair, I did it on my CRT a lot too. Adjusting Sharpness to remove false contours all the time.
