    Hi, can anyone explain any major differences between Tosh 50WT29B & 51WH36, apart from the 50WT29B having freeview, I have sky+ so it may not be an issue. Also which of these is the newer model? I have seen them side by side in the shops & neither with a reduction to being an older model. I can get them around the same price & they are as near as damnit the same size, pic quality is my only major issue. Any advice good or bad greatly appreciated, TIA.

    Thanks for that, I had been there, the descriptions of the pic technology are different, 51WH36- "Active Vision – Advanced 100Hz with Active Mode"
    50WT29-"100Hz DFS" Just wondering which was best pic & what it all really means if anything significant.

    The 51wh36 has progressive scan and 3 100hz modes (normal, active and natural) where the 50WT29 appears to only have 100DFS.
    Most of us with the WH36 watch in progressive as this illuminates the scan lines.
    Sorry I cant be more help.

    Ah, I see, thanks, I have a Hitachi Illumina 43" which packed in after a little over 2 yrs, it has 100hz & prog scan but the prog scan was very flickery & unwatchable, the 100hz pic was superb though, it also had auto convergence, something about the Toshes' I have heard some horror stories about, is it that bad or are some being too picky? I have seen good pics on them in the mainstream shops & I have yet to have met any T.V.salesman/woman in those shops who know what they are on about!
    After a 43" screen I would not go to down in size to 36" crt & I dont think the pics are quite there on the plasmas yet, so it has to be a larger rptv

    It appears convergance can be a big issue with these sets. When mine was delivered the convergance needed resetting very frequently (everyday). I wondered if I'd made a mistake buying it. But it settled down quite quickly (few weeks) and now I never need to touch it. I did open my set up and focus it manaully and set the convergance via the service menu.

    Ouch! Seems I was spoilt then, just push a button & wait 5 mins, how long does it take to get a decent pic? They must be fairly user friendly to be sold in Comet, Currys,Bennets etc, if they got a lot of hassle from buyers I suppose they would not sell them, but "and now I never need to touch it." sounds good to me! Thanks.
