    Quick question re HDMI cables, can a crap one cause noise distortion, when I'm streaming through my Roku box theres a clicking on the sound....like on a vinyl record.....doesnt happen when I stream with the xbox, is it likely to be the cable?

    It's very possible. Try plugging the HDMI into another slot, if it's doing it again, just buy one of these

    I have set my tv display up from a list of optimal picture settings I found on an internet site that reviews tellies. It went into all the advanced menus and fiddled with settings I’d never heard of. Could a calibration from a professional really be any better than that, as he’d have no access to any other settings than the ones I’ve already calibrated via the recommendations I found myself?

    Absolutely 100% mate yes.

    They are experts at this stuff, they have 1000's of pounds worth of kit to read the exact state of your TV, show you where it stands with reds, greens, blues etc, then tweak them as needed to make them perfect.

    It's literally a tailored session for your TV, not a generic one. The generic ones are pointless as every set is different out of the factory.

    If every set was the same, a generic set of settings would be fine (it would also be done in the factory) - but they vary so much. I have only ever done what you do before, I thought it was enough. I was wrong, very wrong and happy to admit! :lol:

    Just buy a decent unit, it’s easier. I prefer watching a tv on a unit rather than a wall just find it more comfortable.

    this 100% I'd also add that calibration also depends on your preferred/actual viewing conditions

    I can remember when televisions were on a stand and kids just didn’t touch them, when did kids start to?

    Must be when you plant the seed. ;)

    On the other hand... no, cos it's all down to personal preferences.

    Theres always been fingerprints on my TV and my lad finds it amusing to climb on the unit and peep his head above the TV from the back as well as pulling the screen. Thats all well and good with a heavy plasma but with a thin screen OLED? Hmm
