Using the LG Picture Wizard

I have used Philips, Samsung, Sony, and Toshiba plasma and LCD flatscreen TVs. The picture menus have the typical picture mode preset choices, brightness control, contrast control, color control, tint control, sharpness control, and advanced submenus. Why does LG call their picture adjustments wizards? Is it similar to when you turn on a component for the first time after you unpack it and it asks you questions, as opposed to having all the controls at your disposal to adjust like on the other TVs I mentioned?

The 'Picture Wizard' is indeed a "wizard" like you know them from many other pieces of software.

However you should certainly be able to tinker with brightness, and everything individually. Maybe you are in a 'Picture Mode' that doesn't allow it. Try and switch around.

My set has Vivid, Standard, Eco, THX, Game, Expert1, Expert2.

Afaik only the first four are somewhat limited.

I don't have an LG. I was curious about how it worked compared to picture menus on the other TVs I mentioned.

As plasma production ends and the LCD only world apocalypse is bearing down on us--I am all in favor of LG using WIZARDS! Maybe they can get Michael Jordan to fight the war against LCD...maybe the Japanese will unleash Godzilla!

If all else fails maybe Elvis will come back to the building!!!
