    Hi

    Does anyone have an opinion on what the best settings are for contrast, sharpness etc and the advanced options as mine was looking great and somehow I have managed to reset everything :oops: and cant remember what I had selected and now it looks nothing like before :suicide:

    I would be grateful for a few opinions on the PERFECT settings! I will try all of them willingly!

    There are no perfect settings. Each system will be different.

    You can do a search on the forum and you should find a list of LOTS of folks settings compiled in a simple thread.

    here are mine for both my sky+ and digi channels, it's a 435xde

    contrast +35 (really quite high, hadn't realised but it must be my prefered pic setting)
    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

    Sounds like it might be a loose connection. Check the cable from media box to plasma and plugs. Also, check remote..no buttons stuck down. Failing that, give Pioneer or the shop a call on Monday.

    Good luck,

    Shaun

    I'm no expert in this field (although I have a 3rd generation Pioneer plasma). However, if you previously had satisfactory results before you started fiddling (!) have you tried re-setting everything to the factory defaults? I think, if yours is the same as mine, you can do this via the setup menu. Good luck!
