    My Panny RP91 will be delivered today and I was curious about one thing (hopefully, my question comes out right)...

    Being that the RP91 has it's own picture settings (sharpness, contrast, etc.), should I re-cal my TV first using VE and then fine tune with the RP91's settings or should I leave my TV as is (it was calibrated to a Tosh SD-1600) and fine tune with the Panny settings?

    Any help to cut down on tonight's set-up time is greatly appreciated!

    Regards,

    Ron

    You'll definitely want to recalibrate the TV with the new DVD player.

    As far as the RP91 settings go, I generally leave the color and brightness settings alone, but depending on the DVD transfer, I might tinker with sharpness(high & vertical), mosquito noise reduction, and edge adjustments in the U2 and U3 menus. It's a very tweakable DVD player to be sure--I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

    Congrats on the new purchase. Of course, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask, since there are alot of RP91 owners here.

    David,
    I figured as much, but I just wanted to be 100%.
    So, what you're saying is just do a normal re-cal on the TV with VE and, if I ever run across a DVD that just doesn't look "right," then mess with the RP's settings?
    I just hope that all of the player's available settings don't tweak me!!!
    Thanks...I'm sure I'll have some questions, but I'll try to get the answers from the RP91 FAQ before I bug anyone on the forum!
