My relevant equipment is as follows: Samsung TXM3096 (sp?) and a Cyberhome CH-500 DVD player (purchased because it does multi-region/proper anamorphic PAL conversion) My question is this: I enebled progressive scan in the menus (as per manual/online help) and find that for some reason I (for now) prefer the 480i picture! I have a sneaking suspicion that I may have to set up the picture separately for each mode (480p/480i/1080i etc.), as I have read that the service menu (which I still haven't tampered with, for fear of conjuring up something horrible from the earth's core/screwing up/voiding my warranty) for the Sammy must be set up for each "setting"...is this the case (before you lambast my choice of TV, keep in mind that we are under a VERY limited budget, and we got the thing for 699$, not a bad deal IMHO)? The progressive scan picture (to my untrained eyes-yes I have the Avia disc, & no, I don't know how to use it well-YET!)seems to me to be rather dark and lacking in sharp detail...can anyone give me any ideas on how I should proceed? P.S. I find these forums absolutely wonderful/vital, and am looking forward to posing many more silly questions !
