Right now I am using the digital audio out from my satellite box to my receiver, is that what you mean?

Yep, just making sure you had a digital audio connection from your sat box - don't want to miss the beauty of "What Not to Wear" in surround sound!

Loc: It's all about the location.
When, Alfred the butler retires, you just know he's heading out on the talk show circut. He'll write a book, appear on Oprah, Larry King Live and spill the beans on Robin. What was Robin REALLY thinking when he slid down the Batpole, hmmmmm?

I would pass on the extended warranty. According to Consumer Reports, plasma TVs have proven to be very reliable. Any problems will more than likely occur within the basic warranty period.
For calibration, you can start here for the basics. You can spring for a calibration DVD if you want to take it to the next level.

Spring for the calibration DVD. It will be worth it. I found that I was able to get notably better black levels and was able to minimize red push on my RPTV.

Congrats Cam.

+1 vote for getting a calibration DVD. I got the AVIA disc when I got my Toshiba RPTV and it made a huge difference.

As for the warranty question, it's your call but here's a little insight. The story's a little old now, but the song remains the same, as it were.

There's a reason that he told you that they get a lot of claims. I'd say that if you're going to have problems, you'll encounter them within the manufacturer warranty period. Enquire about being able to purchase warranty later on, like four years from now.

Thanks for the insight guys, I figured there was a reason he was telling me that they get lots of claims and, well, I waited because I have the fellow Axiomites to help me out. As far as calibration goes, I do have a calibration DVD although I'm not sure which one it is, but it's definitely not AVIA. Does anyone know if you can return cables to Future Shop if the box is open? I bought some component video cables only because I need them for Tuesday and day came to $70. My plan was to look for some at Monoprice (if anyone could provide me with a link to good-quality component video cables it would be sweet) and then return these when I get the others in the mail.

And no they were not Monster cables LOL.
