Hi everybody. I've had this set for just about 2 weeks; works awesome as a monitor and lokks stunning for 360 games and Blu-ray (well The Dark Knight at least, running at 24p via PS3 HDMI), but my HD Directv, HDMI, and upconverted dvds on the PS3 are full of noise.
Directv is hit or miss, but I'm getting noise on stuff that came in clear as day on my LN22a330 that I traded up from. I've also noticed motion smearing on Motorstorm: Pacific Rift, which I didn't notice on the LN22a330, but that game moves fast as all hell. HD videos from the Xbox Marketplace, trailers and such, look great, though. Wish I could access the RBG sliders for each input from the user menu instead of exclusively on the VGA input:/
Does this sound about normal? I don't watch a ton of tv or movies so it isn't a huge deal, but still...
I just had a thought, it's only my HDMI sources that look like crap-ish, I'm going to hook my Directv up to component and see if that changes anything.
Oh and here are my settings:
Color Tone Warm
(I adjusted the RGB and saved a profile with the included software but it made my blacks less deep and colors pretty drab, so I switched back to the text mode and did some fiddling around)
Xbox 360 (component)
Color Tone: warm 2
Size: Just Scan
Black Level: extended
