Default Picture settings with HDMI

So I just purchased this new monitor (the Samsung T220HD) and am generally happy with it but am having one very annoying problem. When I'm displaying a picture from an HDMI source, it restricts some of the picture settings I can adjust; namely the sharpness and color saturation levels. Curiously, they can still be altered by changing the preset picture settings but it prevents me from adjusting them manually (on the menu, the adjustment bars just appear greyed out). I am able to do so when using component video or VGA but not with HDMI. Is there some logical reason for this? It can't imagine one and I'd really like to set the color saturation higher than 50% when using my Xbox. Has anyone else experienced something similar with their display?

Default Re: Picture settings with HDMI

I don't see any reason why that would happen. I would contact Samsung and ask them about it.
