What you're doing so far is fine for someone with your experience.
I tried doing the slides but no luck for some reason it wont let me do it from my mac i have tried usb and sd both for some reason run the slides then come up cant read files then 5 minutes runs the slides been to re format i dont know what the hell i am doing i am not no computer geek! I had a friend over that is good at computer help me with no luck.
I've seen that you've posted several times about using the slides and that you've had a lot of trouble getting them to run. I don't know how many hours you've run your new TV at this point, but you might be just as well off to skip the slides.
So my question is i just using standard setting? is that the setting i should start out with? Ok i know nothing about this settings what is C.a.t.s ? do i need it on or off what is motion smoother ? where do i set it? video NR i could use a little help that would be great if someone could steer me in the right path to start out!
Basically you could select Home Cinema Mode and get into your manual the way that "007" suggested. Use your manual to read about each setting that sounds like it's intended to improve your picture quality (PQ). If it sounds like that's what the setting is for then select the OFF option. For instance Motion Smoother is supposed to make motion look smoother. Set it to OFF.
Contrast Automatic Tracking System (C.A.T.S.) is another PQ improver that should be set to OFF.
This suggestion might help you get started. Ask just one question at a time. Keep each post as short as possible, and read what you've written as if you are a stranger. Will a stranger understand the question you've ask?
Here's the first question that I would ask in the owner's thread for your display.
What settings should I turn off on my new TV?
Once you've got the answer to that question and you've figured out how to turn them all off, then go to the next question.
... could this tv get better when it get broken in?
As it ages and you learn to improve it's settings, it should get better.
Once you are comfortable with your TV and the menus that let you make changes, then look into using Custom Mode and some better settings than the ones that were set at the factory. Enjoy it the way your are now, and worry about making changes later.
