    Quite a few people on here now own this superb LCD (myself included) so I was wondering if there is a consenus for the best setting for picture quality ?

    I haven't made any manual adjustments yet but find the dynamic preset probably the most to my liking.

    If people have found settings that they feel are optimum it may save the rest of us the job of going through and trying loads of different combinations.

    Until 360 is available i'll be mainly using the set for DVD & freeview.

    Are people using the brightnes sensor or not ? - i find it pretty good.

    Any offers ?

    TIA,
    Mike.

    Contrast control on and brightness level control on.
    The dynamic is a bit bright for me but I use standard for TV with warm2 setting.
    Sharpness turned right down.......
    Other than that its out of the box stuff.....Great picture for freeview and DVD...

    I have just got my Samsung LE26R51BD and connected it all up. I am new to this kind of technology and so I may have something setup wrong. I have connected my sky box to Ext1, the DVD to Ext2 and my Xbox to the component ( think thats the name of it). I had the sky box connected with a scart cable but there appeared to be too many vertical lines that were clearly visable. So I have now used a standard coaxial? cable and the image is much better. Any ideas as to why the picture had vertical lines would be great. I did check the scart was in correctly @ both ends.

    cheers.

    Is your Sky box a Pace one? I've read somewhere on here that there is some kind of problem with Pace boxes with RGB SCART. If I was you I'd contact Sky and explain that to them. Perhaps they'll swap your old box for a new one?

    Yes, here.

    :)

    Edit: btw, I think that those of you who have stuck with the default settings (shame on you!) are going to be very pleasantly suprised by the results of raising contrast and lowering colour and switching off Dynamic Contrast (but not auto brightness) ... luvverly. Default settings *always* overstretch colour to stand out on the shop floor. Dynamic Contrast bashes detail.

    Every picture set up will be different. I find that the dynamic contrast doesn't make that much difference on or off with detail. I beleive each individual panel reacts slightly differently within the same model range. Therefore one pic setting will not necessarily suit another panel or viewer...
