    I have had this set for a couple of days, and having some problems with the picture quality. What is the best setting to watch SD. I have tried all the settings, but usually the picture is good, except when there are peoples faces on the screen. The faces become very spotty and multi-colored.

    Does VirtualHD help with SD. Are there any other setups I should do.

    I am seriously thinking of returning the set.

    You've done a manual convergence I assume? Also, try to take out some of the red push. I believe there was a post about this a few days ago. That set is fantastic, I'm surprised you're not happy with it but I'm sure it's something that just needs adjustment.

    MOvie mode.

    Sharpness at %30
    Contrast at 60% or less.

    Take off SVM.

    Dan - I have not done the manual convergence yet. Plan to do it today, along with the red push adjustments, which I saw on the avsforum for the XWX. I assume it's the same for the SWX.

    Michael - Let me know what other tweaks I should do.

    Thanks guys.

    Tweaks are somthing you should learn on your own about first.

    I would:


    -Buy AVIA set up DVD
    -Master picture setting in the user menu
    -Center the screen in the service menu
    -Adjust overscan
    -Touch up geometry and then manually converge via service menu (DCAM MODE)
    -Learn service menu
    -Fix red push and color decoder
    -E and M focus
    -Eyeball greyscale if objectionable (Masters level), or best yet hire ISF guy to come do your greyscale to an Exact D6500K.


    It's about a 6 month learning curve usually, though Sthong on AVS did it all in two weeks then disapeared.
