Thanks Foxy! Will pick up the Spears & Munsil disc.
What are the "few things" that are worth turning off? I assume the adjusting to room light setting is one of them. I saw the set darken before my eyes once!
In Picture - Advanced Settings - Dynamic Contrast = off
In Picture - Picture Options - MPEG noise filter = on
In Picture - Picture Options - Digital Noise filter - off ( means no smoothing out of detail )
In Picture - Picture Options - set to Auto 2 for television use and Cinema smooth for blu ray viewing
If you have a Panasonic blu ray player you need to go into the menu and switch 24p on, it will also be the same for some other blu ray players too.
I think this years Samsung televisions have a black optmizer, leave that on for improved black levels as i hear it works very well, if you notice any issues you can switch it off, i recommend dark room for the optimizer when viewing a movie, never auto.
In System and Eco solution set eco sensor and energy saving to off and auto power to on, the last one means your TV will switch itself off should you forget to do so, you can select when, i choose after four hours of no one pressing a button on the remote control.
Switch BD-Wise off, this can make image quality poorer if you are using a Samsung blu ray player.
The sharpness control is different to a Panasonic plasma, you can increase sharpness to around 10 to 15 for regular television viewing without too many issues, 10 produces no issues for me and is useful for SD content. For blu ray viewing i have sharpness at 5, no issues are introduced at small levels of sharpness on Samsung plasma displays.
