    Hi,


    I just bought myself a Samsung UE40ES6710 and I think the Standard Definition picture quality leaves something to be desired.

    All I have at the moment is an input from a digital aerial.

    HD looks good.

    SD looks rubbish on last nights olympics football.

    SD looks rubbish on childrens TV.

    Weirdly SD looks good on more stable images (i.e. the half time match anaylsis on SD BBC1).

    I just upgrated from a 21" Sony Trinitron (yes I am that far behind the curve) and everything looked great on there (just too small).


    Does anyone know how to get it to look good?


    Your help much appreciated.

    Peterfunfest.

    Tech Radar say that the presets settings out of the box are very poor. Apparently droping the backlight from the max (20) down to 6 or 7 is a good start. My 40ES6710 is being delivered next week so I can't help any further than that until then.

    Is this the case for anyone else?

    I'm thinking of getting one, but this kind of comment is putting me off.

    My 4 week old 40es6900 is just the same. Standard picture through Sky+ looks like a pirate video. I've used THX and AVSHD calibration disks which have helped but then I walk back into the room and want to start all over again.

    I have a ES6300 which i am returning tomorrow. I do not like the SD quality of Samsung. You can however get a decent picture with some tweaking of the settings.

    I've turned down the red off set and red gain down to 0 which has helped quite a bit but it still looks like people have just come out of a tanning salon.

    If it doesn't look good, I'll take it straight back I suppose.

    Decided to return the TV. I can't justify nearly £800 on an ok picture. Samsung hub never gets used and there isn't anything I can't already do with my ps3.

    The image quality from SD sources using internal digital tuner is not good!
    The images are very softer! The resolution is low than other TVs that I can see!
    If the SD signal is get from external interface (HDMI, analog) the quality is better!!!
    If there is a problem with TV's digital tuner?

    examples:
    this image is from internal tuner:

    this image is from external decoder(set top box) connected to TV through a analog SCART interface:
