I just got my new KD-34XBR960 delivered this morning!! :D

I know that I saw a post here in this forum somewhere in which somebody was advising how to set up this set for the best possible picture, but I can't find the thread now!! :confused: :(

I remember that it said something about the set shouldn't be left in "vivid" mode, and it listed the users various levels for color, picture, sharpness, etc... I remember reading something about the red/green level should be adjusted too.

I have played with mine a bit, and I know that these settings are somewhat subjective, but I would like to hear how others have their video settings and why. Tell me about your audio settings too (I am only using the sets speakers now).

Thanks in advance!!! ;)

Excerpt from A Discussion On Poor SD On HDTVs (http://www.highdefforum.com/showthread.php?t=2765)

TV Settings
There are some TV settings that can aggravate the poor SD picture. These are noise filters and other settings that are intended for the clean up of analog video. When digital video is processed by these filters, it can enhance digital artifacts rather than eliminate them. An example would be the sharpness setting. The sharpness is intended to enhance the edges of objects in an analog video picture. You sure do not want to be enhancing the edges of digital artifacts. I use a setting of no more than halfway, but depending on each particular set, this setting may need to vary. Interestingly enough when I watch SD material on my local DTV stations, the video is so free of compression artifacts I usually set the sharpness to 80 or 90. Play with this and see if it does not make a difference.
