I recently purchased a Sharp LC32SB24U. It's not a dream set, but it was affordable and held it's own against the same range Sony and Samsung units available.


Now, I'm not new to home theater or even setting up the picture (been using the monster/isf calibration disc since I was able to borrow it from a friend instead of paying for the DVE disc. Overly simple, but it's what I have), but I can't seem to come to a clear verdict on whether or not Film Mode and Noise Reduction should be on. I know Noise reduction should definitely not be on the 'high' setting because it quite obviously removes some finer detail in the image. What about the low setting, though? Also, what's the official word on film mode's status?


Thanks in advance.

Film Mode should be on.


Film Mode: Automatically detects a film-based source (orginally encoded at 24 frames/second), analyzes it then recreates each still frame for high-definition picture quality.

-Note-

"Film Mode" is not selectable when channel display shows an input resolution of 480p, 720p or 1080p


As for Noise Reduction, I want as little video processing as possible, so I leave it off.

Thanks for the reply.


I realize I posted this in the wrong damn forum, but I'll keep going for now. What's everyone's opinion on OPC? The full range seems to wide for me, regardless, but during calibration, is it usually kept on or turned off?
