Also, the 50" I have doesn't look that great if you're too close, at least on Non-HD material. Seating distance is kind of a big deal with these TVs, the bigger the TV the further away you're suppose to be.
Are those 720p or 1080p displays? 50" and up should be 1080p for a clear picture. It's said that below 50" size, 720p is "acceptable" picture quality. Google the term "Samsung Sucks" and see the results......

So, did you ever get this thing working?
Was it in store demo mode?
Was it something else?

Tom did you check your settings on the Bluray player first then go to the TV.

My 42" Samsung is a 720p, the 50" Panasonic is a 1080p. The picture on the 50" is perfect with all HD material, non-HD is were is the only time there's an issue.

Hello gentlemen, I apologize. I have had life take over and other things come up. I'll update when time allows but for now, the TV stays. The post about "Samsung sucks" was rude and uncalled for. Please do not post things like that again. I know that I do not want a plasma because of the reflective factor, along with the reported reliability factor. This is whether or not you have experienced this or not.
I have tweaked my TV and while I still have questions, the kind folks who have responded answered the most pertinent ones. For that, I am grateful. Thank you. More later.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.
