Cedric,

Did you get into the service menu for you Sammy plasma to adjust the color on the VGA?

How? I would love to do that for my 5053, as the color looks REALLY washed out on it in VGA, but the resolution is so damn sexy!

Here some comparison shots I did with VGA/Component pictures in Rainbow 6 Vegas. You can see the VGA is much more washed out, but looks sharper.

Not if you calibrate it

IS there something in the service menu that will allow me to increase the color saturation on the VGA?

The problem isnt that the vga cables are washed out. The vga shows a true representation of what SHOULD be going on. The problem is, you are used to having your colors oversaturated, with the setting too high.

The vga connection is showing it as it was meant to be....if you want it otherwise, stick to component.

Sorry

Yo may be correct. Weird thing is though that my HP Plasma looks like an in between setting of both of these. Not too much color, and not so washed out.

I actually have the color turned down to about 48 in Game Mode on the Samsung, because it was a little too much.

I think it also depends on the game. If you look at the 2 below shots of Ultimate alliance, they look pretty close.

VGA


Component


You may be right though. I may be use to having alot of color as my preference.

As long as it's not bleeding color.

i prefer the VGA image - smoother, less jaggies

Hey akumaxv, no worries. For my tv, I had originally used the settings for my cable box for the 360, which has the color set around 30. When I first plugged in the VGA cable I was amazed at the color difference, which for me, was shocking!

One of the differences I see, is looking at the two Ultimate alliance shots, is look at the mini-map. Look how (to me) the green arrow looks a little "fuzzy" using component cables, while it doesnt for the VGA image. Again....these are the things that I picked up.

Here are a few shots of my setup. I had posted some earlier, but I had just bought the TV so it was not mounted or anything run in the wall till a few weeks ago. I also recently purchased the Onkyo HT-S907 system. Very nice sounding speakers, if a little large.

Don't mind the plaster on the wall. I drilled some extra holes to make sure I could run the speaker wire through and have not had a chance to sand and paint it. I just put them up this weekend.

I'm in an apartment, so I can't have the joygasmic setups some of you guys have, but for now, this will do:

I think the fuzziness is also due the amount of color in component and the way the camera was taking the picture. I re-took some of them several times because they looked so fuzzy.

VGA is far sharper though. I just couldn't get use to the loss in color, that I saw anyway. Can't go wrong with either one though. Wish they made plasmas with 2 VGA ports.

PerfectCR, you have a great setup that is super clean! Is your landlord cool with you running wires in the walls? My setup is similar to yours just. Just picture your setup with all the wires visible and you'll get the idea!

Landlord? I own my house Oh and I don't have any wires in the wall anyway.

akumaxv, what did you use to mount your tv? Looks nice.
post #1636 of 8018
Those leather couch look so comfy...great setup.
post #1637 of 8018
akuma, nice setup, but you're in an apartment? Is it an apartment that you own or do you rent? I was just curious, like one of the posters above, as to how you were able to run all those wires through the wall.

That doesn't look like a difference between VGA and Component by a difference between PS3 and 360. My VGA looks like the one on the right but wit a tad bit less color but great color at that.

I'll post some pictures of the demo thats online.
post #1640 of 8018
Thanks for the compliments! Glad you guys like it.


It's an apartment, but I bought it, a condo, so it's ok that I run the wires in the wall. I just need to get the PVC runner to cover the ceiling mounted speakers. There was some metal stud or something that wouldn't let me put a hole in the wall to run the wires as high as I would have liked.

For the TV moount, it was the tiliting Omnimount available at Circuit City. Super easy to install if you find the studs in your room and it comes with everything you need, from the wall screws to the screws for the back of your TV. It moves from side to side, which is great since I have what's called an open floor plan. Basically, it's a U shape with the kitchen in the middle. I have my dinning room on one side which you can kind of see and my desk/office on the other so the TV is visible from all sides.

It's my first place that I actually own, so I can't wait to get a house so I can do a setup like some of you guys have.

If you're asking how I ran the cables in the wall, it was pretty easy, as they are hollow.

And the VGA is on the left, component is on the right in both screen shots., and it's definately the 360 only in those shots. I don't have a PS3 (YET).

I think the huge difference is only so apparent on the Samsung plasmas. My HP plasma (last years model with the Panny glass) is an in between of both.

Also, it seems my camera tends to over saturate the colors when I take pics of the component imput as it doesn't look that fuzzy in person.

There is still a big difference betwee the two inputs, on the Samsung plasma though,

Dude! Get real. Not only is it Photoshopped but it looks like you did it using a pic of your grandmothers bedroom. In the future you might want to visit AVS under a different username.
