Using Video Essentials I can get my set looking very good but adjusting for sharpness drives me crazy. I don't find the sharpness grid all that helpful, it just never looks right. Sometimes playing a disc with sharpness at 7, the picture looks fine. Play a different disc at 21 and it looks fine too. For example: Using a close up of a person's face, the detail around the eyes and face are quite good. If two faces are in the frame neither one shows that level of detail, it just 'blurs' up a bit but the picture is still good, just not razor sharp. I just can't seem to nail the sharpness just yet. What do you look at to aid in adjusting sharpness? Toshiba 40H80 calibrated and focused being fed by Toshiba 5109 through Monster 1000 into HD input 2.
