TV Ratio: Widescreen 16:9
TV Resolution: 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i are all checked.
On the Samsung TV I set the Size to: Just Scan. (should I set it to 16:9?)
Are these the best settings for displaying my HD?
Your settings indicate that you think your TV will upscale the incoming resolutions to 1080p, the native resolution of your TV, better than the H20. That may be true but the alternative is to turn Native off, and select 1080i which will cause the H20 to upconvert to 1080i so your TV will have only to process the incoming signal to 1080p.
Whatever looks better to you is
better. The other advantage of turning Native off is a faster sync between the H20 and your TV when you change channels.
I can't comment on the Samsung TV internal settings since I am not familiar with that TV.
