    Hi All

    Got my brand new 37PW7 set-up an running today along with a Dennon DHT500SD all in one system. All I can say is I'm very chuffed so far, the PQ is better than I expected :thumbsup:

    Thanks to all the forum regulars for giving great advice!

    So..... what would be the best settings to use while the screen is running in, contrast , brightnes etc?

    I want to give it the best possible start in life :)

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    best bet is to avoid the dynamic setting, also avoid fixed images for too long, keep brightness and contrast reasonably low for 1st 200 hours.....but other than that its just a case of what looks best to you.....because your room, the screens position, sources, etc will all impact on pq other peoples settings aren't rally that useful. many folk consider isf calibration after 200 hours to get the most from their beasties!

    I used the DVE disc after 200 hours to do some callibration.... it is not easy to follow :eek: but gives you a good idea of what to aim for.

    Then after that I have just tweaked a few settings according to taste, I actually seem to find everything too red, but in the advanced user menu there is some options to reduce the red, which can be 'normalised' if all goes pear shaped!
