Hi Jacko,

I have this TV as had issues with my Standard Sky box picture..

I found that setting my 'Picture Mode' to 'Mild' Ironed out much of the grainy bits of my screen but also lost alot of colour..

In the end i used the 'User 1' setting with the below numbers..

Picture Mode

Contrast : 40
Brightness: 50
Colour: 50
Sharpness: 30
Tint: 1 (this doesnt seem to do much on any setting :confused:

Colour Temperature

Warm

XD (Manual)

XD Contrast: On
XD Colour: On
XD NR: Adaptive
MPEG NR: 0

Advanced

Cinema: On

Remember without Sky HD or any other HD source your never going to get a quality picture. Its like putting diesel in a Porche :(...

Please bear in mind that these settings are my own preference for Standard Sky, i selected these settings myself.

If anyone has any others please post :D.

Cheers,

If you want your TV set up perfectly, then you require ISF Calibration.
