Anybody know how to change the aspect ratio on a Beovision 1 with Beo 4 remote? It's stuck in 16:9 and 'List + 1' doesn't work (The LCD screen is busted on my remote, so only tried blind). I managed to trick it into 4:3 somehow by playing around with the connection setting and possibly turning on decoder in manual tune but it doesn't save that state and I couldn't figure out exactly what made it glitch into 4:3.

EDIT: Figured it out! For those who might have a busted LCD screen on their remote: Press List, List, Go, List, Go, List, Go, List, Go and then down or up arrow to change to Format 1 aka 4:3 mode.

Does anyone have a clue how to get to the service menu in the MX 3500? I opened up the back but I couldn't find any service jumper, certainly not in the location the MX4000 has its jumper.

Also, how do I get this thing to save picture settings (brilliance, color...)? I've tried "STORE" and "S.STORE" after setting everything up, the next time I start the TV, it has forgotten about it.

Ignore my previous post, I managed to get the MX4000 to save.

Just to add to the quality discussion: I got an early revision MX 3500 (1.1 or something), and a 1.6 MX 4000. I shouldn't have bought either. The picture quality is pretty OK with RGB, but not great. Certainly not as good as the 21" Sony Trinitron from around 1999 or 2000 that I have. Also, the MX 3500 has no accessible service menu so I can't correct the RGB signal creating a picture that is too far to the left.

But here's the good news: I also got an MX 6000 for free, and not only does it have a high software revision (4.something) so I can shift the picture to the right, image quality is also miles beyond the MX 4000. It's so gorgeous, I'd even put it one notch above the Trinitron. Just looking at the MX 4000 I have, I was wondering what the heck people were so happy about with those.

So as suspected earlier in the thread, make sure you go for later revisions of everything. That might include both the MX 4000 and the 6000.

The newer revisions have a Philips picture tube on the inside. I forgot the brand of the early revisions, but it is generally thought of as inferior to the later Philips tube.
