1) You should get a calibration DVD, such as AVIA (available at Amazon), to properly adjust your basic settings (brightness, contrast, etc). The THX optimizer found on many movies is probably fine as well.

2) You can get HD broadcasts OTA for free, using an antenna. Alternatively, you can pay for HD cable or satellite.
