Default Best TV picture settings for HD-DVD performance..

I got a 37inch Samsung 1080p LCD tv...

I am fooling around with the settings, and I totally WONKED it all up!

I was wondering what your guys settings are for your tv, and I could adjust to it!

I don't think settings for one brand would necessarily be right for another brand. Your best bet is to get a calibration disc and go from there. Just reset your Samsung to it's default settings if you WONKED it up.

Go to www.avsforum.com, go to the LCD area and type in the model number of your TV in the search bar and find the thread for it and ask there.

It will vary a little bit based on room brightness & color, but AVS forums knows how to do it right. Either way, get a calibration disc. You spend a bunch on hhhhdvd&bbblu and the $20 for the DVE disc is well worth it.

As mentioned the calibration will vary depending of brand and model type. There are several sites that offer recommended calibrations based on your televison. You can do a search for cnet, and tweaktv - those are two of my favorites when calibrating my hdtvs.

I'd recommend buying DVE and doing it the right way if you're trying to go DIY.

What they all said. Get a Calibration disc.

However, i can almost promise all TV's should not have sharpness above 10-20 with HiDef content! No wonder people complain about film grain when they have sharpness at 100.

I find it laughable that nearly everyone on this board always recomends setting the sharpeness to some ludicrously low setting such as 0 or in this case 10. As with anything, picture quality is a subjective experience, and while I agree setting the picture to 100 is not the way to go... over compensating the other direction and using sharpness settings of 0-20 are also often not the way to go. For my 56" Samsung DLP that I do all my movie watching on for instance on the movie hdmi hook up I have sharpness at 65. I have zero noticible ringing or jaggies, and my picture doesn't appear overly soft or "edgey". Initially I followed the mass thought process that lower = better, however on my set to my eyes lower equaled a far to blurry image for high def content, and I just missed out on too much detail. At this setting film grain is still virtually non existant except when it's supposed to be readily apparent, and I couldn't be happier. Calibration disks are the way to go, and I recommend loosely following what tweaktv has listed as well... AVS' recomendations for my set however were off.

Bottom line... start with a calibration disk, then tweak until until you're happy with it.

I'd recommend using a calibration disc to set your sharpness along with all your other settings. While that setting will be different for each TV, I can almost guarantee you it will be a lower number, somewhere between 0 and 20.
