    Ok Folks,

    I have a 50 hz widescreen tv 32" and a 100 digital Plus 32" widescreen tv.

    The sharpness control between them are very strange.

    ie in the 50hz tv if i put the sharpness full wack it really does not make the picture unwatchable cant notice grains and pixels from sky programs etc.

    But on the 100 digital plus tv if i stick that on full wack on sharpness the picture is awful too many grains and pixels. but if i have it set at right level it great.

    Is this normal? is it cos 100 hz tv are more advance at picture showing. As i know on a graphic program for images if you put alot of sharpness into it, it spoils the picture so i take the new 100 hz doing the same type of work.

    The above was on a DVD aswell as Sky

    It's normal. All TV controls vary from manufacturer to manufacturer and even from model to model.

    The mags I've read say to turn the sharpness control right off with most modern widescreens has its not needed and can actually degrade the picture quality. I've done this with my Panasonic PG50 and find it great.

    You can't do that on all TVs as doing so results in a seriously soft picture that loses a lot of detail. It depends on the way the control has been set up. Sharpness has to be carefully balanced. On some sets, sharpness is fixed for RGB inputs anyway, so adjusting it would make no difference. I adjusted the sharpness on my Sony set using the appropriate calibration screen on Ultimate DVD Platinum but Gordon and Nic also recommended just adjusting as high as you can without ringing.

    Thanks for the replies guys, I though this be the case.

    So I just got to set the sharpness that suite my eyes.
