    Got my Samsung 850 yesterday. Connected it up to my Sharp LC26GA3E via a 5m HDMI-DVI cable from Maplin (quality looks a little dubious but I was in a rush to try it out! - still £29 though).

    Using the setting AV digital on the TV gave reasonable results but nothing ground breaking. My old player was a very old toshiba sd-2109 connected via scart so I expected to be blown away!? The picture quality is good just not great.

    I also tried PC digital on the TV and this displayed the image pixel for pixel which looked clearer but the image wasn't centred, was trimmed and looked pretty rubbish!?

    Is there any reason why the DVD player cannot output a signal that is closer to what my screen requires?

    Anyone else got the same set up care to comment, share their experience?

    Could the cable be duff?

    Have you got your hdmi settings on hdmi rbg or hdmi yb yr yc, you should use the latter, it comes out of the box hdmi rgb. If your lead is a bit dubious then try exchanging it but check the settings as i think that may help. :hiya:
