Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players
I just bought a denon 1740 dvd player. I have hooked it to my 40" Samsung 1080P and it appears grainier than my last cheap dvd player, i am wondering if I have some settings wrong. Even animated graphics seem to jump a bit. Is there a setting or anything else you thik I should try or is this just a result of something wrong with the hardware,
Firstly, you should alter the picture settings on the TV. Most TVs have independant settings for tuner, scart and HDMI, so you may need to do this several times. Once for each.
Excessive contrast and/or sharpness on an LCD causes graininess, particularly around the edges of moving objects.
Check and adjust the following on the TV:
Also turn off any contrast enhancements - (Contrast + / Digital
Contrast etc.) dependant on make.
I assume that you are using the upscaling facility of the Denon 1740 via an HDMI lead. If so, disconnect any other connections between the DVD and TV, particularly scart. If the scart is connected the TV will auto-switch to the scart input when you use the DVD, and you will not get the benefit of the high def connection.
This is probably obvious, but make sure the DVD is set to 1080p scaling, and you will need to manually select the HDMI input on the TV.
