Right, got my digital video essential disc in the player. I have managed to adjust sharpness, colour, and to a degree brightness. Contrast however seems to be a problem. The pluge pattern does not work. plasmas do not bloom aparantly. I have also seen some advice on here from gordon about using the snell and willcox pattern on the disc and some thing about black and white squares on the pattern that you need to look at to do the adjustments. Can any one here give me some specific details or advice on the calibration on the whole. Even though I have adjusted the brightness and the contrast is about halfway the picture still looks a little dull. would it help if I turned the power save function off. To my eyes it does not seem to make any difference anyway.
