I have the Disney WoW, and Im not sure if I did the Color setting correctly.

I have the samsung PN59d550

I calibrated on Standard setting, and I got cell 18 , cont 95 , bright 51, sharp 20, gamma 0

Also using Warm 1

but my color setting it says with the blue filter all the colors should be the same shade/brightness as eachother.

To get that I have Color set at 40. tint 50/50

Is that an odd number for color? most people leave it 47-50 right?

but when I put it to 50 the picture with the bright oranges have a haze of orange around them and when its 40-43 the haze is gone.

I mean the colors still look really good at 40. I was just curious if 40 is way too low or odd?

Instead of using the color filters which can be inaccurate you should use the RGB mode of your display.

Standard mode may have some dynamic enhancements programmed in that could mess up your color calibration. They may be there even if you turned the enhancements off. In other words, it might increase or decrease color on the fly depending on the signal, which means test patterns might behave differently than real program material. Try calibrating movie mode instead; it strips away those artificial enhancements. In movie mode I believe you'll find a calibrated setting around 50 that will look good with material as well.
