    these were mine for the 435 xde, i am very impressed with mine

    baring in mind you can have different pq settings on inputs and tuner.

    contrast +35 (really quite high, hadn't realised but it must be my prefered pic setting) prolly best less than 25 for first 200 hours
    brightness +4
    colour -4
    tint 0
    sharpness +4

    Pro Adjust menu

    Pure cinema standard
    CTI on (dunno what that is)
    all others set to mid

    Sky+ is set to rgb on input 1 with an ixsos lead not the best but a good quality. I honestly believe it's mainly to do with the signal strength and quality mine are both very good for sky and terestial

    hope this helps good luck
