    Although your contract is always with the retailer, I personally would only call them within the first 21 days if you wanted a swap or a refund. AFTER that I would call the manufacturer for support.

    (thats the correct number btw):thumbsup:

    @ InsaneOne ;)

    I've just input your settings that are on Page 32, WOW. Picture is excellent, colours look spot on and the picture is nice and bright.

    I've been settled on LGW settings for ages but when I switch between the 2 the whole picture looks like it has a red tint to it!! Reminds me of when I first went from THX to custom settings :rolleyes:

    Definately be using yours from now on :thumbsup:

    One question though, Black Level is set to 'Auto', and it won't let me change it to low. Is this a concern?

    Going to enjoy some Pacific on blu-ray now my picture is poppin' :D

    I think Auto is the only option when using the inbuilt tuner...I dont I use a Humax Freesat box. :smashin:

    Ahh yes your right, I've just input them on HDMI 1 and I could change it there :)


    You can find them on Page 32 of this thread, I don't know what thread you are referring too... :)

    I'm sure Insnity won't mind you pinching the info, if it's not there already :smashin:

    I'm always right...unless I'm wrong lol:D

    So hows she treating ya? The tv that is. :laugh:

    Ive been toying with my mates VT30...its stunning, saw no IR, felt faster to react than the PK so I assume the VT30 has low lag.
    BUT the brightness flucs are a killer (though the EU have got a fix) if they get the flucs sorted I may retire the PK590 to the bedroom ;)

    Like any marriage its a love/hate relationship :rotfl:

    You know what, it does my needs very well. I've been putting off watching blu-rays as I was forever switching between different settings :rolleyes: but I reckon with your latest ones I might start getting through my back catalogue :laugh:

    I've had Wimbledon on BBC One HD this afternoon and its amazing how sharp and more detailed the picture looks compared to the settings I've been using!! Not to mention the colours :smashin:

    The only issue is with the IR really, oh and the dodgy touch button on the front panel :D

    Hey Peeps:D,
    I must admit i had found excellent settings on my PK and PX Plasmas before they went for all sources especially Blu's:smashin:,
    I did suffer a tad with Shadow detail tho which the 550T is rather good with :).

    @ John,
    Stay put with the PK fella, at least until there is a Passive 3D Plasma :clap:

    One last question as im due to go and buy my tv in the next few days, my current Surround Souns system is an older LG model, with no optical on it, and what ive been doing up until now is just running phono leads from the surroundsound into the headphone socket of my current tv, ive noticed this LG has no headphone and only optical out, any ideas?
