Congrats on your new Hd Tv! What an exciting toy to have in the house...and that picture :thumb:
Depending on your Tv I would recommend looking into ISF calibration. Some other nice places to tweak your Tv is at the AVS Forums
. They've got some good information on many things A/V, including a nice OTA reception forum with a link to most areas. Tweak Tv
is also a good one. You can look up settings for your Tv model specifically, they've also got a forum section. For Tv talk that's far into the hobby you can delve into the depths of the Home Theater Spot
. Some of the forums aren't as active as they once were. But when you go into the tweaks and mod forums you'll find certified technicians sharing some of their secrets. Some of the tweaks are easy...and some are rebuilding power supplies. If you become a member you get a few other tweak driven forums that aren't available to everyone.
At home we've got a 60" Pioneer pro with only OTA digital service. It's unfortunate that many people do think that over the air broadcast is dead, because it's currently a stronger medium than it's ever been. It's got a superior picture when compared to cable or sat and DD 5.1. For us...we get the major broadcast and a good number of different PBS channels with subchannels. This suits us, especially when you couple the free OTA with the dual tuner HD DVR and guided Tivo HD system. With the Tivo HD we do subscribe to Netflix. For roughly $10.00 a month we get one dvd/blu-ray at a time and unlimited streaming of their instant view movies. Our total monthly fees are the DSL line and Netflix (35.00DSL and 10.00 Netflix). With the current quality of digital broadcast coupled with streaming capabilities it's a shame more people aren't getting rid of cable/sat. If broadcast had the numbers, the current capabilities could easily put the cable/sat companies in a world of hurt. But they won't get the numbers and payTv will secure themselves into this new emerging Tv market. A shame I think.
