This "sticky" thread from the top of this area of the forum should help you understand the fundamental nature of video industry equipment calibration or alignment:'Display Calibration: Root Fundamentals'
There are an amazing variety of features found in consumer televisions. Unfortunately, TV manufacturers invest tragically little effort in educating the purchasers of their products. Of course they also realize that the vast majority of their customers would not devote the time and attention necessary to study a thick owner's manual. Therefore, the rare consumer who has the curiosity, intellect, and tenacity to study what their TV can actually do must go elsewhere for the education.
Purchasing and studying one or more of the popular home entertainment system setup programs on optical disc can provide tutorials and examples of how this stuff works. Forums such as this one are another venue to gain deeper understanding of how video works. However, there is no shortage of erroneous information mixed in with the good on hobbyist discussion boards. Seek and you shall find! Start with the fundamentals and build from a foundation of the basic principles. One of the best ways to recognize which features on TVs are disruptive to image fidelity is to learn what image fidelity is composed of.
Trial and error, or intuition and experimentation, are the long and unpredictable methods of arriving at reference picture quality. Such methods are how most TV owners determine what a sufficiently pleasing image is on their equipment. Most consumers have never seen a reference video image on a correctly adjusted television. So they are left to grope their way through the myriad of features, functions, and adjustments.
