If you haven't already bought a nice set of HDMI cables, go ahead and do so (just dont fall for the "gold plated" cables as they are a gimmick). Unfortunately, while we all want that HD quality, there seems to be some problems with the ln46a530 when switching from RCA to HDMI. On the bright side, they have been resolved in this forum post.

Best audio settings:
Mode: Custom
SRS TruSurround XT: On
Auto Volume: On
TV Speaker: On

100Hz: 8 clicks right
300Hz: 8 left

For best picture:

Most accurate settings
(This with the mode at movie)
Backlight = 6
Contrast = 85
Brightness = 49
Sharpness = 0
Color = 50
Tint = G50/R50

G-Gain = 25
B-Gain = 25

PICTURE OPTIONS

Color Tone = Warm 2
Digital N/R = Off
HDMI Black Level = Low (actually it's disabled when playing Blu-ray)<-- set this according to your source! If you use a PC, or aPS3/Xbox360 with expanded RGB levels, you might need to set this tonormal!
Film Mode = off (disabled)
Blue Mode = Off

Energy Saving = Medium
Entertainment modes = Off



Hope this helps!!

It's recommended to use the standard feature or factory settings. My suggestion would be to have the picture settings to about 50% with the color set a bit lower to about 40% and the contrast to about 60%.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Can u suggest me best colour settings for my samsung led


Picture default settings are provided by Samsung. If the colors are not correct you might have a bad Main bd. On the other hand if the picture is good and you want a much better picture then you might consider having a ISF Claibrator calibrate your TV.

Hi, I have just purchased the Samsung LE37A559 tv. I have been trying to get the best colour settings brightness colour contrast tint backlight etc. Is there a optimum setting for all of these ? I am...


The problem is that everyone has a different "taste" when it comes to these settings. I like to turn the color all the way down to start with. You should (if the set is factory adjusted correctly) have a black and white picture. If it's not B&W, then there's something inside the set that needs adjusted and you should get a service call. Then I adjust brightness and contrast to get the best B&W picture. Then I turn the color up until I'm happy with the color level, then I adust tint.

Hope that helps

How can i get the best picture out of my samsung while im playing a game


Good Day;
The best picture you can get ryanvo2 depends on the use of the TV's input capabilities. It also depends on the games outputs.
In today's world of electronics there are more options than in the past, so it depends on the age of your equipment.
So, let's look at the most five (5) options available; number (1)one being the worst and (5) five being the best:
1.) RF, radio frequency, direct cable or antenna input.
2.) Video input; yellow, red and white cables.
3.) S-Video input, some units may require additional audio cables.
4.) Composite Video, red, green & blue cables.
5.) THE BEST 'HDMI' cable, computer type.
ryanvo2 I hope this was helpful. I hope you have years of game playing enjoyment in front of you.
Good Luck, Big Irish

Poor picture quality on my samsung HD TV


Hey xf1racer,

Based on the description that you provided, it sounds like you are using a bundled composite video cable to connect your cable box and TV. Composite video cables generally consist of three color-coded cables: one yellow, one red and one white. While the yellow cable is typically used to transmit the video signal to your TV, the red and white cables transmit the right and left audio channels respectively.

Red/green/blue bundled cables however, are often referred to as component video cables - each of the three colored cables is used to transmit a different portion of the same video image from one device to another, and require a second separate cable (typically red/white) to transmit an audio signal.

The primary benefit of using component over composite cabling is that many users may report a cleaner, more brilliant image on their TV as a result. Please keep in mind however that this is not a guarantee that changing from your current set-up to component cables will improve the picture quality on your TV, as picture quality is often based as much on personal preference as it is the actual configuration and settings of the equipment used.

Additionally, many retailers may suggest changing your current configuration to one using HDMI cables instead to improve picture quality even further. Unlike composite and component cables, standard coaxial cables, and S-Video cables which transmit analog signals, HDMI cables are designed to instead transmit uncompressed digital signals. This typically means that more information is available for your TV to process in terms of color hue, color intensity, as well as image resolution. Again, remember that any perceived improvements will be based on both personal preference as well as your home theater configuration.

Should you have any questions or lingering doubts, I would strongly suggest speaking with a Magnolia Home Theater agent at your local Best Buy™ store for more information. Most stores will have similar TV's on display using more than one type of connection, and sales associates are always able to provide additional suggestions if desired.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
