    Hi

    iv had a new sony kv32fx70 telly for the last 2 days and i am happy that it all setup ok with my NTL stb/dvd & video.

    But my wife and I are getting terrible eye strain and splitting
    headache from watching tv ??
    We initially put this down to the increase in screen size, old tv was a 24in telly, but im not so sure now.

    Has anyone else out there had similar problems or have ever heard of this before ?

    cheers

    Paul

    Was the previous TV 50Hz and this one 100Hz, that might be a possibility.

    Do you wear glasses? Or should you wear glasses? What is the focus on the set like? Are you trying to focus all the time?

    I has this exact same problem moving from an old 29" 50Hz to a new 32" 100Hz Toshiba PF2. After about 30 seconds of watching, I got a pressure headache in my temples, so I sent the Toshiba back and got a Panasonic 32PD30 instead. No headache problems with the Panny so far, and it's miles better than the Toshiba in every other way as well!

    I had this problem with the third of my problematic 36PD30s but I was never sure why. The two previous sets had their problems but didn't cause my eyes to ache, makes me think it might be a subtle focus problem.
