Picture Settings

Not sure if this would be the correct forum for this question so please excuse me if this is not. I am using the H20 receiver with the componant cables in 1080i mode on the TV. I have seen on some TV's where there is a "Vivid" setting that can be changed to "Standard" because the picture is so bright. This TV does not have a "Vivid" setting but the picture is so bright it is almost to the point of causing a headache. Could anybody recommend where these settings should go to make the picture not quite as bright?

DNR: (off, soft, mild or hard)
SVM: (check or uncheck)
Picture Mode: (movie, standard or sports it is set to standard)

Setting the picture mode to "movie" will probably drop the brightness and contrast, maybe to where you want it.

If not, try decreasing the brightness and contrast, one at a time. It is best to remember where you started so as to not get it too far out.
Umm, turn down the brightness? :lol:

Seriously, get a copy of Avia Guide to Home Theater. This will allow you to set your TV to the optimal settings for the best picture. Sound and Vision Home Theater Tune-Up is also pretty good.
"Digital Video Essentials" is another great video calibration DVD that will help you optimize your TV's video settings.

Was that irony? :) :) :)
I hope it was irony, since "Brightness" on most tvs sets the black point...
