SVM is a method of "thickening" black borders of objects in the image to make the picture appear sharper. It really only distorts the picture and should always be turned off for truer reproduction. Unless you like it that way of course.

Turn that $hit off, it screws up your picture.

I turn mine off for DVD's and leave it on for most things on cable and most video games.

Wow...thanks for the link. If anyone has any questions whatsoever about HDTV's this is the place to go. I went there to look for one thing and nearly 2 hours later feel my head overflowing with info. Thanks mr. longshanks.
