    Have a Pansonic 32" Widescreen TV.
    Apologise i don't have the model as i am working.
    This has all the usual display controls such as contract and brightness etc.

    Also recently got an AMW P80L.
    This also has controls such as Gamma'Hue'Saturation etc.

    The problem is that on Dark Scenes in movies there is a slight graininess.I bought Gold Plated Scart Leads'but has'nt made a difference.

    I can remove this by changing the sharpness on the TV'but at the expense of detail and the picture looks blurry.
    The sharpness on the Player itself has a Low''Medium and High setting'but i don't notice much difference.

    Is there any other way to fix this using other display settings such as Contrast'Brightness etc?

    You really need a calibration DVD like AVIA or Video Essentials. This DVD will teach you how to properly setup the picture (and sound) on your TV. I found that sharpness needed to be all the down on my direct-view CRT to properly calibrate and needed to be at about 25% on my LCD to be correct, but the DVDs explain all this and are fairly easy to use.
