I'm trying to make a few tweaks to my 40XBR800. Especially on DVDs, which I play up-converted to 720p through the DVI input (From Oppo 981 player). Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
First I want to reduce overscan. I've used MID1 controls (MDVS, MDVP, MDHS, MDHP). Those work but seem to effect all inputs equally, forcing me to live with a compromise -- what gives me 100% of the DVD picture is too much adjustment for the other inputs. Is there any way to just adjust input 7 (DVI?). Is there some better way to make overscan adjustments in general?
Also, when I reduce the picture so there's almost no overscan, I get a little area of bright green discoloration on the extreme left edge of the picture towards the top when there's a rich/bright color (like orange) in that area. I can eliminate it - once again - by compromising and leaving a little more overscan, but wondered if there any adjustments to solve that that worth trying.
Last, I'd like to sharpen the picture a little in the 720p through DVI mode. I took SYSM from 3 to 2 and that really helped. (I tried taking it to 1, but it gave film DVDs an odd, almost artificially grainy look). Any other adjustments I can try to sharpen that input/image?
