Posted several days ago on the "settings" forum, there's been no response to the question, so we're asking the broader audience:
Every "suggested setting" we've seen for adjusting an HDTV to achieve "best" picture indicates that the "sharpness" control should be reset to Zero.
What gives here? It seems counter intuitive.
Is there some technical answer that non-specialists can understand? Do the complex interactions of the controls of all sets link the sharpness control to other parameters in a way that can undermine the overall accuracy of color, contrast range, or motion-blur?
Does it really make a significant difference in "real world" viewing as opposed to watching a calibration DVD in a dark basement?
Thanks for your time and attention.
