A friend of mine just got a 50" Samsung DLP delivered to his house. He was all set up, and asked me to come over with Avia to tweak it (I do the tweaks on my buddies' gear). I went over there, turned the lights down...and BOOM! I got hit with train headlights. That set is BRIGHT at standard mode. I switched into Cinema mode and started making adjustments. After adjusting everything according to the disc (and my dozens of previous tweaking experiences), I popped in a disc of The Fifth Element (the newer, better video double disc...with terrible box artwork). It looked very film-like...but duller than I have ever seen it look on any other set. It looked "more film-like" perhaps, but still duller. In fact, I don't like how it looked in comparison to my 46" Sony HD-Ready CRT RP. Any ideas why the followed steps make this seem so washed out in comparion to the other 30 times I've done it? Changing the value back to default values gave it way too much brightness and contrast, but it was able to get back its life as well. Any info would be good. Also, I couldn't change the TINT while using the HD input. The color was able to work, but not the tint. Any ideas on that one too?
