Sylvania 6427GFG geometry problem I just bought a Sylvania 27" Flat Screen TV and noticed that when watching news channels with a "crawl" at the bottom of the screen, the crawl is higher at the edges and dips in the center of the picture. Kind of like a slight smile. Can this be adjusted so it tracks straight across the screen or should I return the set for a new one. It's still under warranty so nothing lost except back ache lugging it back to store. Thanks in advance

Your fault is called the North South Geometry and the centre is not amplified as much as the outsides.
This is an adjustment easily carried out by a competent tv engineer.
I would call the company the warranty is with and ask them for a service call under warranty to sort the picture geometry out.
