    Seem to have worked it out, i have the hd850 player as well and as soon as you upscale to far like 1900x1080 faces just smudge only on some dvds and not tohers. Just one of them things. Apart from that the Tv is exceptional.

    You played with the color settings? Also don't you need to turn the brightness down for 100 hrs?

    so what resolution are you outputting from the HD850 now?

    In some other threads I have been trying to find out if you can drive the PS42S5H at 1024x768 from the HD850 via HDMI.

    The combination of PS42S5H and HD850 appeals to me. Not only is it cost effective paring, theroretically you can output 1024x768 from the HD850 and hence drive the PS42S5H at its native resolution, avoiding some additional scaling.

    But as I don't have either yet, its just a theory :)
    Hopefully someone like you can confirm it one way or t'other

    Well i have output 1080i whilst playing star wars and the picture is magnificent. No problems what so ever. Tried tears of the sun at that and you get a smudgyness on faces only, when its dark. I think thats the result of to much upscaling. at 576 its bang on and its a superbit dvd anyway so the picture is perfect again. It all depends on the dvd in general what you get out of it as other people have noticed that some dvds are better quality than others. At 720p the same applies some are perfect some have a few imperfections. However i can no doubt s ay that if you purchased one you would be really pleased with it as i am. Hope this helps.

    I have had mine now for about six weeks and the picture has just got better (it was good to start with). At the beginning, the flesh tones were a bit orangy on some channels, but a combination of changing settings and running in has done the trick. I can't wait for Sky HD in 2006.
