    Personally i'd have backlight down to min and colour temp set to neutral. Black corrector off and white to high. But it's all down to your eyes and whether you look at sd or hd pics

    Cheers

    ok,

    My screen has just been chipped in 4 placed due to flying broken glass ( my 13 year old son, big trouble!) can I get this fixed ?

    at first it you could see it on white or black screens including all colour too.

    now I have to look very hard for it, but they are there small in size, one seems deep.

    Any advice is welcomed

    Sharpness 21 sounds very high so will probably be introducing etched edges into the picture which will cover up actual details. If you like the look though then that's your personal preference :thumbsup:

    I'd advise leaving Noise Reduction off unless you're watching a source with a lot of electronic video noise like analogue TV or VHS. I'd also leave all of the Advanced Settings off, except for Gamma.
