    That problem was encountered only if an initial channel scan wasn't done. Once you do some type of channel scan through the RF and the TV adds a channel to the channel list, it won't ask to scan again.

    Hi guys,

    Yes, the old tube t.v.s, when photographed, yield the swirling patterns and these new LCD t.v.s yield the vertical lines JPowers noted. None of this is visible to the human eye when viewing the t.v.; cameras pick it up quite easily and consistently. Photos of my LCD have them like crazy, but I never see them.

    I don't know which photography tricks can be used to eliminate them. I'm an ignoramus in the world of photography.

    Yours,

    David

    Troub, any way you could zoom out and take a few shots in a bright environment (lights on, shades open)?

    Sure I can when I get home this evening, now my couch is about 11 feet away so how far out would you like maybe 10 feet or so away?

    It doesn't have to be far away, just enough to have the TV in 1/3 of the photo. I'm just interested in seeing this in a normal daytime setting.

    Thanks!

    Nice shots Troub.. We'll I went back to see Robert this afternoon with the wife. I brought along some movies to DEMO:

    Gladiator SD
    Quantum of Solace BR
    Doomsday BR

    1st movie was Gladiator. We previewed the opening & ending scenes. The opening scenes looked good. The blacks were nice & the shadowing looked grey as it's supposed to. The movie looked smooth, so I check the settings on the Toshiba. Clearscan 240 was ON & Film Stabilization was set to SMOOTH. No judder or blur was visable as the battle scene began. This also included Maximus riding his horse thru the woods.

    We then went to the ending. Right away my wife noticed how nice & white Joaquin Phoenix's armor looked. The dirt in the arena look nice ans beige. The armor on Maximus looked great & the rose pedals on the ground were nice & red.

    2nd movie was Quantum of Solace. The opening scene looked breathtaking. Then the car chase began. Here again the motion was silky smooth. My wife noticed the SONY had that soap opera effect & questioned why it looked that way. I told her it's an option selected on that TV. I told her the Toshiba has those options (Standard & Smooth) then she questioned why the Toshiba didn't look that way. For me this was a good thing because I personally don't like that soap opera look.

    After the car chase we let the opening song & credits roll. Very nice. The blacks were very inky & the brownish color palette used look great. Also during the credits there was no visable "blooming"..

    Lastly we viewed Doomsday. I brought this movie along because the Blacks & Shadow Detail in this movie are top notch Reference Quality. Again the Toshiba didn't disappoint. Blacks look very inky, while the Shadow Detail was good. There were some scenes that Shadow Detail look a little crushed, but overall this movie looked outstanding.

    I'm basically sold on the Toshiba & once they become available from Robert my order is in. The wife (who's the boss) says she loves the TV, even though she feels we don't need a new TV right now

    Robert once again thanks for everything my friend & here's hoping to put an order with you in a couple of weeks

    Joey

    Great information BFJ... I was fortunate enough to get my hands on one of the 3 panels Robert did have in stock. Well 1 of the 2 remaining from Toshiba and it's been calibrated by Toshiba Engineers specifically so I lucked out there. My panel is due to arrive here in Florida on Wednesday morning along with a new Pioneer 320 Blu Ray and I am so ready.

    Robert has been NOTHING short of outstanding to work with.

    I just got my HTPC running PDVD Blu Ray and hooked up to the Toshiba. Taking a look at Babylon AD and the Mirrors intro...wow! I'm in movie mode with the dynalight on, Toshiba spotlight off, no calibration changes and it is just awesome. Need a little more white on the snow scene. Perhaps standard mode.

    PC text and windows display quite nice as well. Much better than the old can't see what I'm typing changing /typing Mits RPTV.

    No, these work fine. At least I have a better idea of what it might look like in fairly normal lighting. Thanks for taking & posting these for us!

    Thanks, guys! I was just concerned that it might be a characteristic of this TV.

    Troub, I love the fish tank pictures! Looks great!
