Hi All
I am a newbie & I have found this site very helpful in my decision to buy a new TV.
I have just picked up my new Samsung LE40A686M1 from John Lewis (£699 - Bargain!) and I wondered if anyone has the same TV & could recomend me some settings. I am using it mainly with my Virgin Cable box & a Wii. I hope to upgrade to a HD V+ box in the future. I have had a look around the forums & have found so much stuff on settings that I don't really know where to start, hence my query!
If you can give me any pointers it will be very much appreciated.
Just to add, the TV itself looks amazing even before turning it on! & I'd be happy to answer any questions to anyone who is thinking about buying the same.
Many thanks in advance!

No - it was on tinternet for £699, although I have seen it is now £799.95. It was out of stock so I ordered one & they wrote to me when it came in stock, had to wait about 10 days.:smashin:

I have tried to use the settings posted by ALAN CD but have a problem. When setting the custom colour space it state for example red:32/0/0
The thing is I can only see one bar to use i.e. 25
Can anyone please tell me what it is it that I am doing wrong.
