    Ok I went from a LCD to a Plasma and the black level is much different with a Plasma vs and LCD therefore I'm not really sure how to get shadow detail in dark scenes? I have the Samsung 58c550. I have a calibration DVD and it only does so much? Thanks for the help.

    The best place to ask your question is here:

    Samsung PNXXc550 Owners Thread

    Here are some settings for you to try...

    Also the PN58c550 can be turned into a PN58c590...sort of. You can unlock some of the settings available in the higher end model by doing this...

    Is the calibration disc a DVD, or Blu-ray?? The AVS 709 disc, which is a free download you can burn offers 1080p patterns, and the Spears and Munsil blu-ray is great too. Use those to set Brightness, Color and Tint, then use the owners thread to learn recommended settings on other features.

    The C550 is a very good set in that range.
