Only went in for last minute xmas pressies, and came out with one of these with the "free" soundbar, plus a pana 220 BDP.
Has anyone got some optimum custom settings I can use?

Found these for your TV try them as a start point.... Oh & by the way check the firmware on it, it may need updating.

Thanks you sir. I'm doing a firmare update as we speak.
FWIW I boosted the contrast and backlight to 90, and then dropped the colour by 3. Watching The Killing, on BBC4, very impressive.
Sorry for the late reply Steve, i hope you are still happy & enjoying your new TV.
The backlight generally is only turned up if you are watching in a well lit room.
Regards .. Paul
I'm not a huge fan of TV, but I have to admit that this set with the just installed Sky HD is deeply impressive. The soundbar is nicely burning in too and sounds better than I thought; not "hi-fi" perhaps, but rattles the house when playing a movie which is all that counts!
