    Hello,

    I need a little assistance here. I recently got the Samsung SP-P4251 42" Plasma EDTV. I've noticed during dark scenes I've got a lot of "pixelation" I suppose you could call it?? The screen gets real choppy at the dark spots. Does this have anything to do with the Black levels or what not? I'm using the Denon 1910 w/ DVI Connection 720P. I've been out of the loop for a while, so please, and help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
    Ryan

    i'm not familiar with that tv, but since it is ED, wouldn't it be better to feed it a 480p signal instead of the upconverted 720p?

    I'll try that, like I said I've been out of the loop on a lot of this stuff for awhile. Any other suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Well with black levels, my general rule is if it doesn't look right try changing it and see if it helps.

    Sheer calibration usually takes care or at least way minimizes this sort of thing. At least that has been my finding with a couple of Panny ED plasmas I have had to deal with.

    But, the other person is way correct, feed the darn thing native res, produced digitally from the DVD player, should definetly yeild best results on a fixed pixel display such as plasma.
