Okay, folks. I finally completed my tv stand and picked up a Samsung model 2796 at Best Buy today. I got home, hooked it up and tried to calibrate it. Well, the picture looked so horrible I used calibration setting that people posted here (numbers for brightness, contrast, etc). Well, if you've ever played in paint shop pro, the picture looks like a HORRIBLE jpg file. There are little jagged edges and artifacts galore! I'm serious. This is just attrocious. I've hooked up a PS2 via composite cable and thought it was just the connection. I then hooked up the PS2 via component and it looked just as bad. I then robbed a Panasonic RV-30 from a Quazar 27" from the downstairs. I threw on some AR Pro Series component cables and it helped not one bit! Also, the right speaker on the tv appears not to be working, but I was willing to let that slide if the tv looked fine. Is this tv just a bad apple or is there something I can do before having to return it?! Thanks for any help. Much appreciated.
