"This set has a plethora of features to make set up and viewing as easy as possible. As mentioned there is Pixel Plus which increases resolution. It is part of the Digital Processing Control set that also permits the use of progressive scan to eliminate screen flicker. Pixel Plus did increase the brightness and resolution for most video sources but there was a price to pay. For one thing many DVDs I tested exhibited additional artifacts in this mode. The manual warns of this and suggests using the Soft mode but this just added one layer of computer estimation on another. "
