    I've just bought a Samsung PPM42S3 plasma screen; I've connected my DVD using high quality Component video cable, and my freeview box using a high quality S video cables.

    However when watching TV or DVD the skin tones on certain programs looks funny, and really let the picture quality down. :confused:

    I’ve changed the contrast, brightness, sharpness, and colour but can’t seem to get rid of the problem. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

    I have the older version of this screen and notice a similar problem especially on close-up shots (although not so much with DVD it has to be said).

    I have tried re-calibrating the panel using Joe Kane's Digital Video Essentials (the PAL version of which, is now available from Amazon etc.) and noticed some improvement.

    I also find that keeping the colour saturation low (around the 40 mark) and the colour temprature on Cool1 reduces this problem for my RGB feed from a freeview box.

    I hope this helps.
