Hey guys. This is my first post on this forum, but you were referred to by the BX board as being good with this kind of stuff. My question is this, I just got an HDTV, 52 LG DLP. I know that each tv is different so this may be impossible to answer fully, but I was wondering in general, what are the best settings to run with on the tv? I have a feeling that the default settings aren't where they should be. I'm downloading a Avia Home Theater Set up disc, but the thing is going to take days to get. I ran through the THX set up, but the tv ended up being REALLY dark when I was finish. I have read up on the whole contrast, color, sharpness thing, but still wonder if everything is set up right. If anyone can help, that would be much appreciated.


The model of the tv is LG 52DC2D

Also, I thought I'd mention, the reason I feel that the settings are wrong, and this may sound stupid as I am running standard digital cable, but shows like Simpsons and South Park look HORRIBLE on the tv. It looks like there is a shadow beside the characters. Mind you, for a test, I downloaded an episode of both the Simpsons and South Park and transferred them to my tv and it wasn't so bad at all, so I'm thinking it's just the signal from the digital cable. But I would think that it should be better then it is.


Sorry for all the posts, but I was reading up on other posts and there was some stuff I felt I should add. One being that I'm running coaxial cable from the box. Should I switch to svideo and if I do, how much of a difference will I notice and does the type of cable matter?
