    For those of you who have tried taking screenshots of your TV, what settings do you tend to use on your digital cam to best convey the great (hopefully) picture quality of your setup?

    I have my optimal settings but I have to wait till I get home to post them as I cannot remember them all. Here is an example of my screenshot which was 4.0 Mpixel but then reduced in size to fit on a 1024x768 screen with no scrolling...

    OK, my particular camera was the Kodak DX6490. I used the manual mode and set as follows...

    ISO of 200, shutter speed = 1/4 sec, and +1.0 ev

    No flash was used and the camera was mounted on a tripod which is important. The best setting (4 mega pixels in my case) was used.
