I've had this nice player for a month now, and I'm still not decided as to what settings to use on the Philips. I'm using a LCD PJ (Sony HS1) via component. The settings in question are (correct me if I'm forgetting some): TrueLife, gamma, black level shift, sharpness, and chroma delay. Reg. black level shift: The manual states that this setting is for NTSC outout only, but that doesn't seem to be true. You still have a choice of on or off in PAL as far as I remember. Reg. chroma delay: What the heck is it anyway?? Make sure to output prog PAL as unprocessed, not 480P, otherwise it looks quite bad IMO. A source of confusion are the sharpness adjustments, because you have one on the PJ (set to 0 on mine), and more or less two on this player; the sharpness and the TrueLife, which I perceive to be a kind of sharpness setting as well with a limited radius. Maybe it does other things as well, though. I guess my question is: Do you have any insights on what settings to use to get the best overall picture with a balance between neutrality / lack of artifacts, and "punch"?
