    Hey guys,
    I just recently purchased a 46wt500 and am having a few problems with the tv. The grainy picture is just too much for me to handle (I have digital cable). I tried using S-video cables, but they didn't help at all. The color looks really "washed out" as well. I am trying to do whatever I can not to retern the set, but don't know what else to do about the problems. Does anyone know what I can do to make the problems better or if not, know any other rptv's around 2k that will be a whole lot better for digital cable?

    Please help this newbie,

    well i have the same set and there are things you can do to make it look better.
    If you haven't done so, you can put the picture to pro mode,
    Contrast= 25-30%
    Brightness= 35-40%
    Color= it's in the middle so move it 4 clicks to the left.
    Tint= middle
    Sharpness= 25-30%

    Try those setting that adjust to your liking from there. it's a great set, so don't give up on it that easily. Dvd's look great and from my understanding HDTV is excellent.

    PS: remember you said you just got the set so you HAVE to let it break in. the first hundred hours are important so turn down the contrast and brightness to my suggested setting. give the tv time to break in. all rptv's neeed it. The picture will improve 10 fold as it breaks in.
