Well guys, I bought the Samsung PN58A550 on sale today and am super excited!! I actually got to see the set as they had one on display and the picture is very stunning. It comes on Tuesday so I was wondering if you guys had any setup suggestions like TV settings, and connecting my components. The only components that I have to change around are my satellite and one of my DVD players; now that I have component cable hookups. Should I run both into my Denon and then one component out from my Denon to the TV? Also I don't have any clue about setting my Denon up or my TV up to get the best picture. Oh yeah, the TV has a two year warranty and future shop will add their warranty (four years) which in essence tacks on another two years for $500. Do you guys think it's worth it? The salesperson said that they get a large percentage of warranty claims. I know I'm probably missing something, but any input would be greatly appreciated. You guys are the pros and I'm the peon \:\) .

Thanks ahead, I can't wait!!

PS. If I get lots of suggestions and input I'll post lots of pictures \:\)

I'm spending my money on electronics now because I'm dreading the day that your statement applies to me \:D

Cam, here is a two cent intro. Just don't jump on me if you know all this already, I'm just going through the basics i can think of off the top of my head. I'd go with HDMI if you have the option from your cable box and DVD /BluRay, that will simplify things dramatically and reduce wire clutter and reconnection time if you need to unplug it all for whatever reason. Monoprice seems to be the source for wire that everyone here supports. Blue Jeans cables is another good site for cheap quality wires. If you go with component, try to use the optical out from the TV and Cable Box so you get 5.1.

I would say go to AVS forum and they likely have a thread dedicated to your TV series. It dramatically sped up the tweak of my RPTV. You will get a quick handle what changes everybody has adopted and how to get into the service menu to make real changes. If you don't have a BluRay player I would put that on your short list. There are some out for much cheaper now.

With a big 1080p TV you need to feed that beast some sweet 1080p food. I recommend Dark Knight as the eye candy of choice with its IMAX images. (Adrian mentioned Darkest Knight, apparently a love story between Joker and Robin, but I have not seen it so I will reserve judgment. Not that there is anything wrong with that!)

Yell if you have specific question, I am sure the answers are here.

Oh good, Adrian is here to give us the book report on Darkest Knight (or is it Night). I'm guessing Brokeback Mountain with much creepier dialogue. Or, perhaps it is just Top Gun with tights instead of towels? Gay Top Gun Explained

The only option I have from my satellite and DVD player is component, but I don't understand what you are saying when you mention to use the optical out the optical out from the TV and cable box so I get 5.1. Right now I am using the digital audio out from my satellite box to my receiver, is that what you mean?
