    I've had a Panasonic TX-32pb50 for a while now and was messing about with the contrast and brightness last night to try and get rid of a kind of a "heat haze" around objects on the screen. Is there available any advice on the best way to have the brightness/contrast/colour/sharpness etc set up ?

    Probably the best/easiest thing to do is search your DVD collection for a title with THX branding. If you don't have one, buy one (eg Indiana Jones Trilogy). Then look on the disc menu for the THX Optimiser and follow the on-screen directions.

    Aha - I didn't realise there were disks that could do that !
    I don't have a problem when watching DVDs, it only occurs on terestrial/SKY viewing, but it would be a good exercise to set things up properly

    Monsters Inc has it as well John. I used mine last night to calibrate the sound levels.

    if you say DVDs look good then it may be the reception and not the settings. use a RGB scart and set your sky to output and RGB signal and it may clean up the picture.

    I'm using an Ixos scart cable into AV1 (RGB) and have it set for RGB on the Sky box. All this seems to give me is a more saturated picture.
