New Hitachi Projection TV - help with picture adjustment

I just traded in my Sony 51" for a Hitachi 51" (51SWX20B)... but no matter how much I tweak it, I can't get the picture on DVDs to look near as good as the Sony did. The regular TV picture looks fine, just not the DVD pic.

I'm using component connections and a Malata DVD player (the same DVD player / connections I had with the Sony).

I don't know exactly how to explain how it looks except that it's just not as clear as it should be. I think allignment might be off a bit (something I can't fix). Not only does it look this way, but I did the video callibration on my French Connection DVD, and when it showed me the circle that's supposed to be perfect, it was not near as perfect as it should've been.

Anyway, if anyone out there has the same TV, please let me know the picture settings you use for DVDs, and I'll try those out on mine. If it still looks really bad, I think I'll just trade back for the Sony

I don't have this tv, but you might want to uy the Avia disc, which is a great disc to own for any owner of a projection tv or otherwise for that matter. If you have the patience to ffiddle with the calibrationg you can pick this disc up at Amazon, or probably any B&M
