    Vertical line down the middle of the screen is normal on a toshiba tv so your gona have to live with it im afraid. Convergence needs to be readjusted every couple of days so welcome to the great big world of Toshiba big screen tvs.

    thanks guys.
    if i knew before i bought it i would have gone for the sony!!!
    still in discussion with the supplyer who might just replace it, but if its the same then ill try and go for a refund or credit note.
    anyone any suggestions for a replacement, thinking of going for a panasonic 300 projector??
    must admit im gutted saved for ages, but thanks to all replys, my contrst and DNR settings have no effect.

    thanks

    Every couple of days???

    I agree for the first month or so the thing does need a fair bit of playing around with, but after that my 51" has only needed tweaking very occasionally - usually after I have moved it which is not very often. Even the on board convergence net looks great after almost 3 months of no tweaking at all.
