Do you know any good places I can go to, so I can change the picture settings to their optimal settings?

I keep playing with the colour and picture settings, and keep making it look worse. :lol:

yeah I tried them, but there doesn't seem to be any settings for my specific model of TV, Are there any sites I can go to with test patterns etc that I can use to setup the TV?

I remember someone posting a thread on GR that showed you how to setup, does anyone still have that?

Cheers

I've started to notice bleeding colours on 360 games. :(

I have a Sony KDL32D3000 and the 360 is hooked up through VGA. I've never noticed the bleeding before but I played FEAR and the blacks blur quite a bit. So I tried MoH Airborne and a red nazi flag did the same and I could see the blurring clearly.

I've never noticed this before so I'm not sure if it's a new thing or if I just wasn't aware of it til now.

So is this a fault with the TV or what? And if I were to replace it and get a new 32" HDTV, what would be a good option that definitely wouldn't have any ghosting/bleeding?

Try a HDMI cable, it might be a fault with the VGA cable.

I'm no expert but the best in that size are Sony's (I think) but they're pretty expensive.

I'm sure someone on here got a 19" LG, not certain though.

I'm very indecisive.

The Samsungs are alright 19 inchers.

Just get a set of 2.1 speakers, for gods sake! (I can't have a different sound system due to my room being weird, and the Samsung speakers are godawful).

But if you can afford it, get a Sony.

Yeah, don't buy from Currys. I think (but I need carlos to confirm) that John Lewis'll price match. Or Comet. Currys are cretins.

I am getting it from dixons now...which is the same thing like but I am confident everything will be all right :)

Reason is I typed in the TV model name on google before and a sponsered link came up for dixons.

Is this TV any good? I don't want a plasma as it will generate too much heat.
