Finally got my 1st ever blue ray player and have a few questions.
I picked up the new panny DMP 320 player to go with my new panny 60GT50 plasma tv.
BD player is connected with HDMI direct to tv.

Picked up about a 1/2 dozen blue ray movies from best buy today to try it out and was actually a little disapointed in pic quality. The player is set at default settings. All movies i picked up were in the $10 range. 1st movie I tried was THE PATRIOT and then watched the original TRANSFORMERS movie.

Both movies really didnt look any better than watching a movie on cinemax HD or showtime HD channels. Shouldnt Blue Ray movies look much much better?? Actually when i finished the transformers movie, shut down the player and then switched inputs back to cable, the tv was on a cinemax movie and it looked better than the blue ray movie.

Is there settings changes I need to make to the player?
Are these cheaper blue ray titles not as good of quality as others?

I also popped in a few regular DVD's and they looked horrible. (these were also older cheaper DVD's)
Is there special settings I need to make to make DVD's look better??

sorry for all the newb questions and ive searched for settings but havent been able to find any.

Mods ask that all questions go in the thread for their player. Please repost there as mods will more than likely lock this one. People have posted settings there. Look/search the past few pages.
