    Check out the quality of the Teletext output (it's usually a good guide to focus and convergence of a set), 'cos out of the three I've looked at recently (last couple of days), two looked particularly soft, particularly on the r.h.side, and the other was just about OK, but not up to the standard of the 32PW9617s or 32PW8717 (although that set has other problems, basically to do with NTSC replay - see an earlier thread).
    Anyone know why this should be, unless they just ain't set up properly.
    Also (for anyone who's interested) of all the sets I've looked at :-
    Philips 32PW9617 - all have had Panasonic tube (assuming this is the one with the extra two dots (centrally) on either side.
    Philips 32PW9527 and Philips 32PW8717 - all have had LG Philips tube (without any extra dots) - so why the big difference in Teletext quality?

    Have a 32PW9527 with LG-Philips tube, focus is fine, teletext very sharp.
